Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have recently celebrated the arrival of their second child, a baby boy born earlier this month. The news was reported by TMZ on Monday (21 August), stating that the child was born on 3 August in Los Angeles.
The name of the newborn has not been disclosed yet, but TMZ mentioned that it starts with an "R," just like his older brother, RZA Athelaston Meyers.
Rihanna's second pregnancy was announced during her 2023 Super Bowl halftime show performance in February. Dressed in a bright red jumpsuit, she was seen rubbing her stomach, leading to pregnancy speculations. A representative for the Fenty Beauty founder later confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter.
This joyous occasion comes just a year after the couple welcomed their first child, RZA, in May 2022. A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Athelaston Mayers, marked their son's first birthday with heartfelt photographs on Instagram, captioning the post with a loving message.
Both Rihanna and Rocky have been protective of their children, choosing not to reveal their son's name immediately and shielding him from the spotlight. In a cover story for British Vogue's March 2023 issue, Rihanna shared her thoughts on protecting her son from unwanted attention and the importance of introducing their child on their terms.
In May, the Savage X Fenty designer also spoke about her second pregnancy, describing it as "so different" from her first. She mentioned having no cravings but experiencing nausea, adding that she felt good and energetic.
Representatives for Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have not yet commented on the news.
