Rihanna pregnant with her first child with rapper boyfriend

Entertainment

Rihanna is pregnant with her first child, new photographs of the star show.

The singer-songwriter was pictured displaying her bare baby bump while out in New York with her rapper boyfriend A$AP Rocky.

Despite freezing temperatures in the city, Rihanna can be seen wearing her bright pink coat open at the bottom, with nothing on underneath, to proudly share her stomach.

The couple were photographed walking around the Harlem neighbourhood, where A$AP Rocky is from, at some time on Friday or over the weekend, and the images were first published on Monday by US media outlets.

Neither Rihanna nor the rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, have issued a statement confirming the news.

However, the pictures suggest the star, 33, is several months pregnant and is not hiding it.

In an interview with GQ in May 2021, Mayers, also 33, described Rihanna as “the love of my life”. Asked if he was ready to be a father, he replied: “If that’s in my destiny, absolutely… I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.”
