Last Sunday, the singer, 34, shocked fans as she revealed her second pregnancy by debuting her baby bump during her much-anticipated Super Bowl halftime show.
Rihanna posed for photos with her rapper beau, 34, and their nine-month-old son, who was featured on the cover of Vogue’s March issue, just days after revealing her surprise pregnancy.
Rihanna told the magazine that Rocky is her “best friend” and that motherhood is “everything,” admitting that she can’t remember her life before having her son in May 2022.
She said of becoming a mother: ‘It’s everything, you really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever.’
Rihanna described her first few months as a mother as a “head-f**k,” saying she couldn’t believe she went into the hospital pregnant and came out with a baby.
The pop star wore a one-shouldered black gown for the stunning photoshoot, cosied up to Rocky in one intimate shot.
Rihanna admitted that having a child has caused her to reevaluate many things, describing raising her son as one of the “scariest” responsibilities she has ever had.
‘Raising a young Black man is one of the scariest responsibilities in life,’ she said.
‘What am I leaving my kids to?’ you wonder. Is this the planet they’ll be living on?’
Despite the challenges of motherhood, Rihanna insisted it has only brought her and her partner Rocky closer as she said they are ‘best friends with a baby’.
‘Everything changes when you have a baby, but I wouldn’t say it hasn’t brought us closer,’ she adds.
She also gushed about Rocky’s relationship with their son, saying that their son needed validation from his father as she described their close relationship.
While pregnant with her second child, Rihanna stated that she would like to have more children but will have to wait and see what happens in the future.
Rihanna, who gave birth to her first child just nine months ago, revealed her surprise second pregnancy on Sunday during her much-anticipated halftime Super Bowl performance.
