It was back in January when the couple announced they were expecting — with an NYC photo shoot — both sets of fans went nuts with excitement for RiRi and A$AP.
And thankfully, the Grammy winner also has a great partner to help her raise her child. In an interview with Vogue for the magazine’s May 2022 cover, Rihanna gushed over Rocky, revealing that after spending the pandemic quarantined together, “He became my family in that time.” She went on to explain that she knew he was really the one when she took him home to Barbados for the holidays. “It was us who were going home,” she said. “We were going home.” And while her mom is typically difficult to impress, she took to the rapper right away. She continued, “My mother has a really good read on people. She observes first and then she’ll move slowly. I guess I’m like that too. There are some guys that I’ve dated that she won’t even look at to this day. But she was charmed by him from the jump.” She concluded, “I always thought it would be marriage first, then a baby, but who the fuck says it has to be that way. I’m certainly not gonna let that get in the way of me being a mom.”
