Rihanna and boyfriend A$AP Rocky welcomed their first child together in May of this year, but she is supposedly already thinking about expanding their family. A source told Entertainment Tonight that the Fenty Founder has “dreamed of being a mom,” and would “love nothing more” than to have more kids with the rapper in the coming years.
“Rihanna and A$AP are so in love and have the best time together,” the source added. “They are also a great team when it comes to being parents to their baby boy. Rihanna always dreamed of being a mom and she takes a lot of pride in it. She would love to have more children with A$AP in the future.”
However, she does have 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 completed her fourth fashion show for Savage X Fenty. Fenty beauty is doing great, too. And fans have been clamoring forever for Rihanna to get back in the studio and release a new album. That hasn’t quite materialized, but she has released two songs for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack, “Lift Me Up” and “Born Again.”
It was recently announced that Rihanna was going to headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2023, so audiences will at least be hearing her sing live again very soon.
“Rihanna is excited for her Super Bowl performance,” the source told ET. “She is trying to stay on the healthier side and feel good and fit ahead of it.”
Rihanna herself told ET‘s Rachel Smith that she had a form of buyer’s regret after the Halftime news was announced.
“I can’t believe I even 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 the stage like that, but it’s nerve-racking. You wanna get it right. You know everybody’s watching. And they’re rooting for you, and I wanna get it right. It’s a challenge I was willing to accept. Being a new mom, nothing would have gotten me out of the house if it wasn’t a challenge like that.”
She added, “It was now or never. Yeah, for sure. For sure. You can get real comfortable at home as a mom.”
She then shared a little about what her daily mom experience has been like, and her favorite part.
“Oh my god, the mornings, like, seeing his morning face!” Rihanna declared. “Seeing a baby with, like, little bags and waking up and they’re just, like, startled. They’re trying to figure out where they’re at. It’s the cutest, it’s my favorite part of the day.”
