She Debuted Her Baby Bump In January

In January, the "What's My Name" crooner revealed that she was expecting her first child with Rocky. This was after the pair were spotted in New York City with Rihanna wearing a long pink jacket that exposed her baby bump.

In one of the pictures, the rapper kissed the soon-to-be mom as they walked down the street.

Last year, Rocky had an interview with GQ, where he opened up about his relationship with Rihanna and called her the "love of his life" and "the one."

He also shared his desire to have kids with the fashion mogul. "It's in my destiny, absolutely." He added, "I think I'd be an incredible, remarkably overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very."

The Singer Didn't Allow Her Pregnancy To Deter Her Fashion Style

Over the past four months, Rihanna has consistently turned heads and impressed with her pregnancy style. She even shared with Vogue that she wouldn't consider wearing maternity clothes, adding that it was too much "fun" to dress up.

"None of the dials are turned down," she told Vogue. "I think I even say yes to more now because I know it will be different on the other side of this. At first I expected some magical change, but really I remain who I am. I'm not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing."

She also shared the same sentiments with Entertainment Tonight and People.

"Fashion is one of my favorite things, so, you know, we're defying what it even means to be pregnant and maternal. It can get uncomfortable at times and so you can dress the part and pretend," she explained to ET.

And she shared with People, "I'm enjoying not having to worry about covering up my tummy. If I feel a little chubby, it's like, whatever! It's a baby."

"He has been right by her side for all the regular daddy-to-be duties like rubbing her back and feet, going to all the doctor's appointments with her, and running errands whenever she needs," they shared with Hollywood Life.

They also added that he had taken his support to extra lengths by turning down offers to head out to clubs and parties with his friends. This has been reported to resonate with Rihanna as they prepared for their new phase as parents.

"He's showing Rihanna that he's the kind of man who will be an incredible father to their baby," they added.
