Rihanna and A$AP Rocky's rumoured relationship has reportedly become 'meet the parent -Christmas official', after the pair was seen spending the festive holiday together in Barbados.

Their blossoming relationship was reported earlier this month, via People. A source explained their dating is actually quite recent despite the longtime friends first sparking romance rumours in January when they were seen together shortly after Rihanna parted ways with her billionaire boyfriend of three years Hassan Jameel.

A$AP Rocky was 'very into Rihanna for years' before they finally got together, a source told Us Weekly earlier this month. Now that they're finally an item, things seem to be going pretty well for both of them.

They were spotted spending the holidays in Barbados, which both Rihanna and A$AP's fathers call home.

'Rihanna has been in Barbados since [last] Thursday,' a source told People. 'A$AP joined her and they are spending Christmas together with Rihanna's family.' They reportedly arrived at Rih's home this past Wednesday and spent Christmas Eve on a Catamaran sunset cruise.

Since they started dating this year, they've been spending much of their time together, another source told the publication.

'They've been inseparable the past few week,' the source said. 'It's a new relationship, but they both seem very into it. They've always seemed to have a great time together. They have a lot in common. They both are very much about helping out in the communities where they grew up. A$AP is generous, and so is Rihanna. A$AP is known for being a great guy. Rihanna seems very happy dating A$AP.'

Although it's not super clear how long these two have been dating, it seems that things have really only picked up in recent weeks. On December 1, Entertainment Tonight reported that 'They have always had amazing chemistry and Rihanna relates to A$AP and it feels natural, easy and fun.'

The same source told ET that 'She feels very comfortable around him since they've known each other for such a long time and also feels a connection to him because his dad is from Barbados.'
