The 34-year-old hitmaker said during the interview that she and her partner, A$AP Rocky, decided not to find a nanny for their nine-month-old son and stayed with him during his early years.
The performer recently spent more than $500,000 on a rental home in Arizona, and the interview with her was made public just days after she announced that she was expecting her second child during her performance at Super Bowl LVII.
After the birth of their son, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky decided to raise their son alone, the singer told the media outlet.
"We came home, cold turkey, had no one. It was just us as parents and our baby," she shared.
The singer of Disturbia recalled that the early years of being a parent were challenging for her and her partner.
"Those first days are insane. You don't sleep. At all. Not even if you wanted to...you're a zombie for the most part," she stated.
The performer remarked how profound she found the experience of starting a family to be.
"Essentially, from one person I became two. You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It's nuts," she said.
Beginning in the early 2010s, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, 34, became friends and worked together for several years.
In 2020, the couple started having romantic encounters, though they initially kept their relationship a secret from the public.
Rakim Athelaston Mayers, the rapper from Sundress, later discussed his love for his girlfriend in an interview published in 2021.
In a follow-up photo shoot in New York City in January of last year, the singer proudly displayed her growing baby bump.
In May that year, Rihanna gave birth to a boy. The child's name has not yet been made public.
The performer also discussed her relationship with A$AP Rocky, saying that their bond as parents had strengthened it.
"We have to be on the same page, but we've always kind of had that in our relationship. Everything changes when you have a baby but I wouldn't say it's done anything but made us closer," she said.
Rihanna recently announced her second pregnancy to the world during her performance at the Super Bowl.
Before the performance, she had hinted during the Apple Super Bowl LVII halftime interview that she might bring someone, but we all didn't realize she was referring to her growing baby bump. But of course, it's Rihanna! It has got to be iconic.
The performer displayed her expanding pregnancy bump while belting out several hits in front of the audience and cameras that got everyone talking.
The expecting mom, who has been on a six-year hiatus, didn't allow it to stop her from giving fans their money's worth as she ate the performance and left no crumbs.
Even though she performed at the Super Bowl 57 Halftime Show and won nine Grammy Awards, motherhood matters most to the singing sensation, Rihanna.
On Tuesday, a source revealed to PEOPLE;
"The main focus right now is on her family. She loves spending time with her son."
"She loves being a mom so this is where her mind is at the moment," said the insider. "She is the happiest she has ever been."
The founder of Fenty Beauty also discussed her second child with Vogue, stating that she has no expectations for the infant's gender.
“Listen, I’m down for whatever. My wish would be I would like to have more kids but whatever God wants for me, I’m here,” she said. “Girl, boy. Whatever.”
Following her daring and revelatory Super Bowl halftime performance, Rihanna is still high.
According to Luminate, the pop star's song sales increased by 390 percent. According to the data company, on-demand streams for her catalog increased by 140% in the United States.
Rihanna's performance, which received a lot of positive feedback on social media, included a mash-up of 12 songs from her extensive discography, some of which were sometimes delivered from elevated platforms above the football field.
Rihanna's music saw an increase in U.S. on-demand streams to 62.2 million on the day of the halftime show and the day after, from just 25.8 million the two days prior, according to Luminate, which provides the data used by Billboard for their hit charts.
