New children’s happiness! Rihanna and ASAP Rocky are “adjusting well” to fatherhood a few months after the birth of their son, a source tells Us Weekly.
Rihanna and ASAP Rocky: the full timeline of their relationship
“They rarely leave their child,” the insider adds about the 34—year-old Grammy winner and her 33-year-old partner, who became parents in May. “They are very private about their newborn due to concerns about his safety and really just want to keep him out of the public eye for now. …They both feel really happy and very happy.”
When it comes to recovery after the birth of a child, the singer “Complicated” is in no hurry. “Rihanna is in no hurry to lose weight. She really accepted her body and doesn’t feel pressure to lose it quickly,” a source tells us. “Rihanna is a workaholic, so it’s nice to see how she finds the time to thrive in motherhood.”
Rihanna quotes about pregnancy and a long-term desire to have children
The couple provoked rumors of an affair in December 2019, and two months later, Us exclusively reported that the musicians “grappled”. Rapper Good for You broke his silence about the relationship in May 2021, calling Rihanna “the love of my life” during an interview with GQ.
“[It’s] much better when you have The One. It makes up probably a million others,” the New York native said at the time. “I think when you know, you know. She’s alone.”
The creator of Fenty Beauty announced her pregnancy in January next year in a fashion photo shoot for pregnant women in New York. “They’re both very excited,” a source told us at the time. “Rihanna will be a great mother. She already had some practice with her nieces and nephews. …She took care of herself and her growing child. ASAP satisfies all her needs, definitely treating her like a princess.”
Since they welcomed their son earlier this year, the “Love on the Brain” artist and music producer have been laying low. Rihanna made her first public appearance after giving birth in July at GoPuff Delivers Wireless 2022, a 10-day music festival in London’s Crystal Palace Park, and the pair were spotted walking together in New York earlier this month.

“They are having a few modest dates, but they are still focused on raising their little boy,” the first source tells us.
The couple has not yet revealed the name they have chosen for their son, but Rocky spoke about his hopes for the baby’s future during a candid interview with Dazed magazine in May. “I will always remind my [future] children never to lose their imagination, even as adults, no matter what. I really love watching cartoons,” he told the publication. “I hope to raise children with a broad outlook. Not people who discriminate. And I’m not trying to describe a saint, but really, I just want a cool kid with cool parents.”
