Rihanna levitated on a floating stage while singing her hit single, B*tch Better Have My Money, when she unzipped her red jumpsuit to reveal her growing bump. The crowd cheered as they realized the billionaire was becoming a mother a second time.

When Did She Get Pregnant?

According to her social media post after the Super Bowl, Riri didn't know she was pregnant with her and Rocky's second child when shooting her Feb. 2023 Vogue cover. So, conception happened sometime last Winter.

Brief History Of Rihanna And Rocky's Relationship

Rocky and Rihanna were linked in the early 2010s but never admitted they were in a relationship. The singer starred as his love interest in his hit single, Fashion Killa, which many fans believe was a love song for Riri.

Although they split up in the mid-2010s, they reunited in 2019 and made their red carpet debut at the Fashion Awards. Riri wore a beautiful seafoam dress, matching gloves, and a jacket, while Rocky appeared in all-black.

Questions With Vogue And GQ

The couple still claimed being friends during their Questions interview with GQ and Vogue. However, their in-depth knowledge of each other's set off knowing bells in their fans.

Confirming Their Romance

Despite continued public appearances together, it wasn't until 2021 that Rocky confirmed his relationship with the Barbadian singer. At first, Rocky was vague, saying he's grateful for his girlfriend, but that wasn't enough to get fans off their trail.

Their First MET Gala

Riri and Rocky debuted their MET Gala in 2021 when they dressed as beddings. It solidified their relationship publicly despite isolated appearances before then.

A few months later, Riri shocked everyone with their announcement of her pregnancy via all her socials.

Following the grand announcement, Rihanna went ahead to prove why she's the greatest fashion icon of this century. She showed off her baby bump uniquely, reminding fans that pregnancy isn't an excuse to lose your style sense.

The Marriage Proposal

Rocky and his boo sparked marriage rumors after they recreated Fashion Killa with D.M.B's music video, which showed the couple getting married. They clarified later that it was creative freedom and nothing more.

No Ring For Now

The couple is focused on raising their children, for now, so there's no wedding bell in sight. However, knowing how private Riri and Rocky are, they could be married for all we know.

Welcoming Baby Number One

Rihanna's first son (whose name remains private) will be a year old in May, and his mother is thrilled to have him. She shared pictures of the child on her socials after starring in their first British Vogue cover as a family.

Backlash For Calling Her Son 'Fine'

Online trolls were upset that Rihanna called her child fine because they attached an inappropriate meaning to the word. However, it didn't phase the new mother.

Her Perfect Baby

Rihanna celebrates her son as often as she can but wouldn't take him with her to the Oscars.

Joking Around With Her Son

She joked about it in a new post saying he was upset his sibling would be there while she sang Lift Me Up live.
