Rihanna’s fans were left gobsmacked earlier this year when she performed at the Super Bowl halftime show and was seen gently touching her stomach – suggesting she was pregnant a second time.

The Fenty Beauty founder’s spokesperson would go on to confirm the pregnancy to The Hollywood Reporter.

TMZ reports that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s second child was born in Los Angeles in early August and at the time, the infant’s name wasn’t disclosed.

However, it was reported that the ‘Umbrella’ singer had welcomed a baby boy and that his name began with ‘R’.

Rihanna opened up to British Vogue in 2020 about her family plans, revealing that she’d like three or four children.

When asked when she saw herself in 10 years, the ‘Stay’ singer responded: “Ten years? I’ll be 42! I’ll be ancient.

“I’ll have kids – three or four of ’em.”

A source tells Heat magazine that Rihanna is ‘blown away’ by motherhood, adding: “She always used to say she wanted three or four kids, but as soon as she had her son that number doubled – now she’s talking about having ten!”
