Rihanna Reportedly Gave Birth To A Baby Boy Last Week
Did you just hear a languished, frustrated scream sent into the ether? It wasn’t Rihanna giving birth, it was all the people who just heard she gave birth last week and realized that our eyes will no longer be gifted all the showstopping glamour of Rihanna turning out not-maternity maternity looks. But Rihanna has better things to worry about, like her and A$AP Rocky’s baby who she gave birth to last Friday.
Rihanna had been showing up and showing out for a good chunk of her third trimester. She even attended a rave-themed baby shower in her honor last month, which is brave of her, considering the third trimester is usually the trimester where politeness leaps out the window, and a pregnant person might find themselves hissing stuff like, “YOU can shower whatever the fuck you want baby, but I’m staying here in my pajamas and the last remaining pair of shoes my 20-inch swollen ankles will fit in.” So naturally, I was expecting to see Rihanna waltz effortlessly into the ER in a pair of 6-inch heels, breathlessly explaining that she’s there to have a baby. That didn’t happen. Rihanna’s birth was so private, we’re just learning about it now. via TMZ:
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are officially parents … welcoming a baby boy to the world.
That’s right, it’s the couple’s first kid together — sources with direct knowledge tell us he was born on May 13 in Los Angeles — but we don’t yet know his name.
The last time Rihanna was seen in public was on Mother’s Day weekend when she and A$AP Rocky went out for dinner in Los Angeles. According to TMZ’s calculations, Rihanna reportedly gave birth five days after this picture was taken.

People adds that Rihanna and Rocky are now at home with their new baby.
The congratulations are pouring in from far and wide, and even from people who should mind their own business. The Ghost of Chris Mess Past, Present, and Future, Chris Brown, went ahead and congratulated Rihanna on her new baby news.

Those emoji’s eyes are saying it all, truly. I’m shocked that emoji didn’t immediately turn into the emoji with its hands crossed across its face, in a way that is universally recognized as “NO! Do not proceed further. Do not hit post. This is Rihanna’s happy day, go bother someone else.”
