Rihanna has always wanted to be a mother, and she will be very soon. Now, the singer has confirmed her first pregnancy by strolling through Harlem with boyfriend A$AP Rocky, her growing baby bump was on full display during the outing.
Rihanna’s dad, Ronald Fenty, was contacted on Monday, and from his Barbados home, he said, “I’m ecstatic. I’m so happy that I jumped for joy. I’m still so excited.
“Rihanna always said that she wanted children, she loves kids. She always takes care of her cousins’ kids…she’s going to be a good mom.”
A$AP Rocky met Ronald Fenty after his daughter brought him home to the Caribbean island in December 2020, describing him as “a very cool guy” and adding, “I like him.”
Rihanna’s relationship with her father, a former alcoholic and crack addict, has been strained over the years. Only a few weeks before they appear in court, Rihanna dropped her lawsuit against her father, which accused him of misusing her name to benefit his own entertainment company.
Rihanna whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty appears to have settled scores with her father, as he told Page Six that the “Umbrella” crooner called him to inform him that he will become a grandfather on Sunday night.
“I just got the news from her last night, and she sent me some photos. I’m just over the moon. She’s beautiful inside and out,” he said.
Rihanna told British Vogue in 2020 that she had turned her attention to motherhood after her long-term relationship with Saudi billionaire businessman Hassan Jameel ended.
She said, “Since I turned 32, I’m realizing life is really short.
“You don’t have a lot of time to tolerate s–t, you know? You put so much on your plate. When you’re overwhelmed, you need to start cutting things out. And I’m overwhelmed too much…I know I will want to live differently.”
When asked where she pictured herself in 10 years, she said, “Ten years? I’ll be 42! I’ll be ancient…I’ll have kids, three or four of ’em.”
