Rihanna adores her new role as a mother.
The singer-fashion icon and her boyfriend rapper A$AP Rocky, welcomed their first child together earlier this month, and sources say the two are adjusting to parenthood as they raise their baby in Los Angeles.
Rihanna Adores Her Newborn Son And Is ‘In Awe Of Him’
The source informed People how her infant son is healthy and she is “in awe of him.”
“Rihanna barely leaves his side. She is a fantastic mom,” the insider told the outlet. “She wanted to give birth in L.A. since she has a big house with a yard. She enjoys sitting outside with her baby.”
The source added that the new mamma seems happy to spend time with her son, saying that she “doesn’t seem rushed to get back to work.”
“Being a new parent is of course an adjustment, but they are doing great. Their baby boy is healthy and Rihanna is just in awe of him,” they said. “She really was so excited to be pregnant. She loved it. Meeting her son was of course extremely special too.”
Many outlets stated how the singer gave birth on May 13, with a source previously telling the outlet how the new mom was doing well. In an April interview, she said that she was looking forward to seeing the world through her child’s eyes.
“They’re going to teach me more than I could ever teach them. And I want them to go for it. I want to see who they are in the world, who they become,” she said. “Because I’m just here to keep them on the rails—a passenger as much as the driver.”
She also spoke about how she was a bit apprehensive about how she would balance life with a newborn.
“Balance is one of my biggest challenges and always has been,” she says. “And now there’s another human being coming into play, it changes what that means again. Still, I have businesses that aren’t going to run themselves. My mom handled the three of us with not even close to the amount of resources that I have, so I can absolutely do it. What does it look like? I’m not sure.”
