Rihanna and A$AP Rocky welcomed their first child on 13 May. While the couple are yet to confirm the name or gender of the baby, US media reports that the newborn is a boy.

The parents began dating in 2020 and spent a lot of time together during the Covid-19 lockdowns.

Rihanna previously told Vogue that during this time, Rocky went from a longtime friend to her “family”.

She also opened up about whether the pregnancy was planned, telling the magazine that although they weren’t trying for a baby, they were “certainly not planning against it”.

“I don’t know when I ovulate or any of that type of sh*t. We just had fun,” she said.

“And then it was just there on the test. I didn’t waste any time. I called [Rocky] inside and showed him.”
