A$AP Rocky won’t have any trouble in raising his son with Rihanna because he already knows the kind of father he wants to be.
It’s been two weeks after the singer and beauty mogul gave birth to their first child together. In a recent interview with Dazed published on May 30, the 33-year-old rapper shared, “I will always remind my children to never lose their imagination, even as adults, no matter what.”
He added, I actually love to watch cartoons – I’ve watched like, Teletubbies, Blue’s Clues, Yo Gabba Gabba, Peppa Pig and Baby Shark. I hope to raise open-minded children. Not people who discriminate. And I’m not trying to describe a saint, but realistically, I just want a cool child with cool parents.”
Rihanna gave birth to a baby boy on May 13 in Los Angeles. They revealed in January that they were expecting their first child together. Their pregnancy announcement included their maternity shoot featuring the rapper and the 34-year-old “We Found Love” singer walking in New York City. She was wearing a long pink coat and low rise jeans with her bare baby bump standing out in the photos.
In an exclusive interview with E! News, Rihanna revealed it was hard for her to keep the pregnancy news from her friends saying, “It was harder for me to keep it from my posse, because they’re around me, they know my habits. They’re like, ‘You don’t want something to drink? You’re not smoking?’ And I’m eating all the things I’m not used to eating. They know I hate sweets and I’m all of a sudden asking for cookies and donuts. But finally, I just had to let it all out, and they were all shocked, of course, as the world was shocked as well.”
The couple also threw a raver-inspired baby shower which was attended by their loved ones. Those who attended the party were given commemorative t-shirts with the print, “I went to Rih & Rocky’s Rave Shower and all I got was this amazing shirt”.
Rocky and Rihanna have known each other for a while. She starred on his music video for “Fashion Killa” in 2013 while once served as the opening act in the Fenty Beauty’s Diamonds world tour in North America. It wasn’t until 2020 that they started seeing each other romantically.
