Rihanna and boyfriend A$AP Rocky welcomed their first child together in May of this year, but she’s reportedly already thinking about expanding their family. A source said Entertainment tonight that the Fenty founder has “dreamed of becoming a mother” and would “love nothing more” than to have more children with the rapper in the coming years.
“Rihanna and A$AP are so in love and having the best time together,” the source added. “They are also a great team when it comes to parenting their little boy. Rihanna has always dreamed of becoming a mother and she is very proud of it. She would love to have more children with A$AP in the future .”
However, she has a lot going on right now. Not only is her son still under a year old, she also has a wildly popular lingerie line and just finished her fourth fashion show for Savage X Fenty. Fenty beauty also does well. And fans have always clamored for Rihanna to get back in the studio and release a new album. It hasn’t quite come to fruition, but she has released two songs for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack, “Lift Me Up” and “Born Again”.
It was recently announced that Rihanna will headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2023, so audiences will at least get to hear her sing live again soon.
“Rihanna is excited about her Super Bowl performance,” the source said ONE. “She’s trying to stay on the healthier side and feel good and fit ahead of it.”
Rihanna herself told ONEis Rachel Smith that she had some kind of buyer’s remorse after the Halvtime news was published.
“I can’t believe I said yes,” she explained. “It was one of those things that, like, even when I announced it, I was like, ‘I can’t take it back now. It’s final. I can’t believe… what did I just get myself into?’ ‘ Because the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. It’s an entertainer’s dream to be on stage like that, but it’s nerve-wracking. You want it right. You know everybody’s watching. And they’re rooting for you, and I want to get it right. It’s a challenge I was willing to take on. When I was a new mom, nothing would have gotten me out of the house if it wasn’t for that kind of challenge.”
She added: “It was now or never. Yes definitely. Definitely. You can be very comfortable at home as a mum.”
She then shared a bit about what her day-to-day mothering experience has been like and her favorite part.
“Oh my god, in the morning, like seeing his morning face!” Rihanna declared. “To see a baby with little bags and wake up and they’re like freaked out. They’re trying to figure out where they are. It’s the cutest, it’s my favorite part of the day.”
