Rihanna Shares What’s “So Different” About Her Second Pregnancy
Rihanna was quite literally “mother” at the Met Gala, arriving alongside partner A$AP Rocky with their second child in tow. The “Umbrella” singer wore a bridal white gown with a flower-covered hooded coat that draped over her baby bump.
Rihanna revealed that she and A$AP Rocky were expecting their second child during this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. She has been pretty hush-hush about the pregnancy since, but she revealed a few more details at the Met Gala.
“It’s so different from the first one,” Rihanna told “Entertainment Tonight” during a red carpet interview Monday night. “No cravings. Tons of nausea. Everything’s different, but I’m enjoying it.” Despite the morning sickness, she added, “I feel good. I feel energetic.”
The pair welcomed their firstborn, a son, in May 2022. “I wouldn’t say [we were] planning [to start a family]. But certainly not planning against it,” Rihanna told Vogue for a cover interview during her first pregnancy. “I don’t know when I ovulate or any of that type of sh*t. We just had fun. And then it was just there on the test. I didn’t waste any time. I called him inside and showed him. Then I was in the doctor’s office the next morning and our journey began.”
Right now, the 35-year-old Fenty mogul is loving her one-on-one time with her firstborn, who turns 1 this month. “I’m in love. I’m obsessed and I don’t even feel guilty about it,” she shared with a big smile during her Met Gala interview with “ET.” A$AP stepped forward to share his own update, “[He’s] growing big. Beautiful, happy baby.”
Becoming parents has also brought the two of them closer together. “We’re best friends with a baby,” Rihanna told British Vogue earlier this year. Here’s to the happy couple and their growing family!
