Rihanna has now confirmed that she and rapper A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child together and she did it in the most Riri way ever!

Stepping out together, the singer made the couple’s pregnancy news adorably obvious by wearing a pink puffer jacket buttoned just above her baby bump, with some cute beads and necklaces trailing over it.

Rihanna and her long-time beau were pictured walking together, with their arms around each other and according to Metro, A$AP was also pictured putting his hands on her bump protectively—our hearts!

Now the Barbadian hit-maker has officially announced the news to her millions of Instagram followers and the bump photos kept on coming. Sharing a sweet snap of herself wearing a vibrant orange oversized sports jersey, Rihanna pulled up the top to proudly show off her growing baby bump. 

She also re-posted several of the original pink coat pictures and they’re just as stunning the second time around. Rihanna’s caption excitedly declared, “how the gang pulled up to black history month”. 

And it seems the star already has a brand new nickname as fans took to the comments to share their excitement.

“Mama Ri! We are so happy for you Queen ❤️🥺”, one person replied.

Whilst New Zealand choreographer Parris Goebel wrote, “MAMA RIHHHHHH😍💘”.

And even Rihanna’s brand got onboard as Fenty Beauty shared, “Congratulationsss mama 😍💗”.

The Rihanna and A$AP Rocky dating speculation first started in 2000, not long after she split from long-term boyfriend Hassan Jameel. A blossoming romance seemed to be developing when the pair appeared in videos for GQ and Vogue discussing skincare ahead of Fenty Skin's launch in August of that year. The rumors seemed to be confirmed in December 2020, after sources told People that they were 'inseparable'.

The Goldie rapper then melted our hearts and gave a rare insight into their relationship in an interview with GQ, calling RiRi 'the one' and said: "She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones." They finally made their red carpet debut together at the 2021 Met Gala.

Since then they have been keeping their relationship very much under wraps, but have been kind enough to share their baby announcement with us in a very cute way.

Rumors started swirling in November, that the fashion and beauty mogul was pregnant with her first child after she was pictured touching her stomach. 

When a fan tweeted: "Can I come to the baby shower sis!? True or not your babies are going to be beautiful. Sorry everyone’s up in your uterus right now"

Riri expertly replied: "Ha! Stop! You ain’t came to the first 10 baby showers! Y’all breed me every year dammit lol."

We all should have known, when Riri wants us to know, we'll know. Congratulations Riri and A$AP!
