Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s Son Makes His Social Media Debut
“Hacked,” the singer-actress-designer Rihanna joked with a TikTok caption on Saturday. In reality, she was showing off her seven-month-old son, and giving the public their first glimpse at the child she and A$AP Rocky (Rakim Mayers) co-parent.
The name of the young social media star has yet to be revealed. It is the first child for both parents, whose relationship was first confirmed in late 2020.
The 45-second clip shows the youngster giggling in a car seat. In between coos, Rihanna is heard asking “are you trying to get Mommy’s phone?” Further evidence shows that … he might, indeed, be trying to do just that! (See for yourself, it’s very cute.)
In April, Rihanna said in an interview that the pregnancy was not exactly planned, but they also weren’t planning against it. “I don’t know when I ovulate or any of that type of shit. We just had fun. And then it was just there on the test,” she said.
Of her relationship with the New York-born member of the A$AP Mob, she said the whole thing was an unlikely situation, considering that they had a long history as friends. “People don’t get out of the friend zone very easily with me,” she said. “And I certainly took a while to get over how much I know him and how much he knows me, because we also know how much trouble we can land each other in.” They bonded during the pandemic, however, taking a road trip from Los Angeles to New York City.
The two first collaborated on the 2012 track “Cockiness.” Rocky then joined Rihanna’s 2013 Diamonds World Tour as her opening act for the North American. Whispers of the two being an item began in 2018, when they sat side-by-side at a Louis Vuitton show.
