Rihanna dropped a gift for everyone’s Tuesday evening, sharing a carousel of photos of her and A$AP Rocky’s son during his first Easter. “Eastuh!!!” Rihanna captioned the Instagram, featuring her firstborn son chewing on a necklace and posing in bunny ears. Rihanna, of course, is pregnant with the couple’s second baby. She has not shared her due date or the second baby’s sex, nor has she shared her and Rocky’s first son’s name.
She did share a second set of photos of her son at Easter, shot by her friend Melissa Forde. “Look at heeeeee!!!! shot by de birFday gal herself @mdollas11 !” she wrote. You can see them here.
Rihanna hasn’t shared too much about her baby’s life, but she did tell British Vogue in an interview published this February who the baby’s preferred parent is: his dad. “I’m just sitting on the sidelines when they’re together,” she said. “I’m literally the girl trying to get into the boys club, waiting for my turn. He is obsessed with his father. And I’m like: ‘Didn’t I give birth to you? What is going on?’ Their connection is undeniable. The second Rocky makes eye contact with him he is on fire. The whole thing they say about sons and moms, it’s a myth. Sons and fathers is crazy. I realized that the validation that you really need as a boy is from your father.”
In the interview, conducted before she announced her second pregnancy at the Super Bowl, Rihanna revealed to the outlet that she definitely wanted more children. “Listen, I’m down for whatever,” she said. “My wish would be I would like to have more kids but whatever God wants for me, I’m here. I’m open…Girl, boy. Whatever.”
