The most awaited birth of the year has finally happened. Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky are officially parents, reports TMZ.
According to the portal, it is a boy who was born in Los Angeles. However, it is not yet known when the birth took place, nor the name of the child. The boy is the first child of the two artists.
The pop star’s pregnancy was announced by the couple in January of this year, when she was 4 months pregnant, but rumors involving the baby started back in November last year.
The child’s father was arrested last month on his way back to Los Angeles from Barbados. He was released after posting $550,000 bail. Rocky was arrested on an allegation that he was involved in a shooting in November last year. One person was injured in the hand. The case remains under investigation.
Rihanna and the rapper have known each other since at least 2012, when he worked on the Cockiness remix. The following year, he did the opening shows on Rihanna’s US tour.
In 2018, they were photographed together at a Louis Vuitton show in Paris. In July last year, Rocky participated in a campaign for Fenty Skin, the singer’s cosmetics company.
