Although a lot of fans agree the child bears a striking resemblance to Rihanna, one fan noted some facial similarities the baby shared with Rocky, his father. They wrote, “Cutie on duty. He looks like Rocky in the pictures of him when he was little, but he has Rih Rih forehead. It’s gonna be trouble wit the ladies.”
One follower tweeted that the child is “the most perfect mix of two parents I see both Rih & Rocky.”
Rihanna Shared A Video Of Her Son
Rihanna joined TikTok in style over the weekend with a short clip of her seven-month-old son as her first post. Since having him in May, the artist and Rocky have kept him out of the public eye, meaning that this was fans’ first peek at him. The couple is yet to reveal his name.
The video was shared on Saturday and showed the seven-month-old strapped to his car seat. He was all smiles and made several gurgling sounds while his mother, Rihanna, spoke to him behind the camera. She asked, “You tryna get Mommy’s phone?” and then he broke into another adorable gummy smile.
The star captioned the post “Hacked.” Several fans were surprised to see the post, some questioning if it was really the “Sledgehammer” singer’s real account.
The Singer Welcomed Her Child In May
Rihanna and Rocky welcomed their child together in May this year. People Magazine revealed that at the time, the star was excited about the journey and already well on her way to being a great mother. The couple initially announced that they were expecting in January this year.
In the ensuing months, Rihanna showed off her awe-inspiring style tailored to fit her pregnant body. A source said at the time that the artist “couldn’t be happier” about the pregnancy. “Everything Rihanna does, she does it her own way on her own timetable, and having a baby is no different,” the insider revealed.
They added that the couple was ecstatic about the addition to their home. “They’re just like any other pair of parents-to-be. Yes, they happen to be famous, but they’re just the cutest, giddiest young couple that’s expecting kids,” the source said.
Rihanna And ASAP Rocky Have Been Working Hard Since They Welcomed Their Son
Rihanna and Rocky have been out and about in recent months. After years of radio silence concerning her music career, the singer lent her voice to two songs on the track list of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” She was also live in the movie premiere with Rocky last month.
Still, on her music career, the artist is gearing up to head the Super Bowl Halftime Show at the start of 2023 and, hopefully, a new album. Rocky also has a new album coming up and revealed that it had ties with being a father and how he intends to raise his children.
“I will always remind my children to never lose their imagination, even as adults, no matter what,” the rapper said to Dazed Magazine. “I actually love to watch cartoons – I’ve watched like ‘Teletubbies,’ ‘Blue’s Clues,’ ‘Yo Gabba Gabba,’ ‘Peppa Pig,’ and ‘Baby Shark’.”
During her Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 show in October, Rihanna spoke to some reporters about her son, saying, “He is funny, he’s happy — and he’s fat! He’s amazing. It’s a real cuddly stage right now.” The show was conducted in Los Angeles and was eventually streamed on Amazon Prime.
