She captioned the post, “how the gang pulled up to black history month”, and added more photos from her pregnancy announcement photoshoot which was released on Monday, January 31.
It didn’t take long before fans and other celebrities flooded the comment section of her post. One of the first to comment was Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi of “Shahs of Sunset” who wrote, “Beautiful” and added a heart emoji.
The 33-year-old singer and her boyfriend and father of her child, A$AP Rocky, 33, announced their pregnancy in the most epic photoshoot in Harlem, his hometown. In the shoot, Rihanna was wearing a vintage Chanel coat, with some unclasped buttons to reveal her baby bump.
Some fans didn’t find this surprising because many noticed her womb in November based on the fit of her gown when received the National Hero award in Barbados, her native place.
Also, there were speculations regarding her pregnancy late last year because she’s been spotted wearing heavy coats and other clothes that concealed her baby bump. An insider exclusively told Page Six that RiRi was “openly rubbing her baby bump” while dining at Carbone with A$AP Rocky.
The insider added, “At one point she got up and had to maneuver the bump around the side of the table.”
Rihanna and Rocky have been friends for years but it was only in 2020 that they started dating. In 2013, he opened for Rihanna during her Diamonds World Tour.
Meanwhile, he’s been very open about his admiration for Rihanna. He was featured in GQ Magazine in May 2021 where he talked about their relationship. He said, “So much better when you got the one. … She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones.”
In the same interview, he was asked if he was ready to be a father. He answered, “If that’s in my destiny, absolutely. I think I’m already a dad! All these motherfuckers are already my sons—whatchu talkin’ ’bout!”
He added, “Nah, but like, I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.”
