Surprise! Rihanna Has Announced That She Is Expecting Her First Child: Here’s Everything She’s Said About Motherhood
Over the years, Rihanna has created quite the name for herself. Not only has she become a pop icon with a repertoire of songs that are recognizable to nearly everybody, but she also became a self-made billionaire thanks in large part to her uber-successful lifestyle brand, Fenty.
And while the singer and businesswoman has her career on lock, she’s also discussed motherhood in the past as well. In 2020, Rihanna opened up about whether or not she would like to have kids.
Kids, as Rihanna said, are definitely going to be a part of her future. “Ten years? I’ll be 42! I’ll be ancient,” Rihanna said in the interview, thinking about where her life will take her a decade into the future. “I’ll have kids — three or four of ’em.”
During this interview, Rihanna was rumored to have been dating A$AP Rocky. However, when it came to the question as to who she would enjoy starting a family with, the singer admitted she was perfectly fine parenting alone.
“I feel like society makes me want to feel like, ‘Oh, you got it wrong …’ They diminish you as a mother if there’s not a dad in your kids’ lives,” she said. “But the only thing that matters is happiness, that’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That’s the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love.”
In another interview with Extra, Rihanna admitted that one of her dreams was to become a mom. “A lot of women get very defensive,” she said after being asked about motherhood. “It’s personal, it’s our bodies, and of course, it’s our time. It’s not necessarily everyone’s dream to be a mum… but it’s mine, so I’m fine.”
And now all those dreams are starting to become a reality. According to Elle, Rihanna and A$AP have been friends since 2013 but their relationship reportedly turned romantic around 2019 and 2020.
