Rihanna looked breathtaking in a slinky black dress and a high slit as she walked in the sand barefooted ahead of ASAP Rocky, who cradled their baby boy in his arms and kept it edgy in a black-on-black leather ensemble and silver accessories.

Rihanna's dress featured a chic silver altered neckline, and she matched it with bold silver earrings while she kept her rich brunette hair in rough curls with soft bangs.

Baby Fenty

The elated mom then shared an adorable picture of her son and used the term "So fine" in the captions, which some social media users found offensive. They argued that she should have used a more "kid-friendly" term, as "fine" is for grown-ups.

"Who calls a baby fine?" quipped a curious fan.

A Loud Response

Trust the Umbrella singer to never back down and defend her actions. She replied to the user, "His mother!!!" and then added, "You just keep your lil cougar paws away from him and we good!"

Baby Number 2

While we're eagerly waiting for her to reveal the name of her baby boy, the singer also revealed major news during her Super Bowl halftime show. She's expecting her second child with her partner ASAP Rocky, and they're beyond excited.

Rihanna Had No Idea She Was Pregnant During The Shoot


The 34-year-old award-winning artist revealed in the caption that she had no idea she was carrying her second child at the shoot as she thanked the photographers for taking amazing pictures of her family.

She gleefully described how the birth of her son changed her world and admitted she couldn't remember what her life looked like before welcoming her son in May 2022.

"It's everything, you really don't remember life before, that's the craziest thing ever."

The First Few Months

The singer, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty talked about the first few months of motherhood. She called it a rollercoaster and couldn't believe she entered the hospital pregnant and left with a whole baby.

The Task Ahead

According to the singer, the child's birth caused her to think about raising him as it's now one of the scariest responsibilities ever in her life.

"Raising a young Black man is one of the scariest responsibilities in life [...] You're like, 'What am I leaving my kids to? This is the planet they're gonna be living on?"

Closer In Love
