Pregnant Rihanna gives rare glimpse of her and A$AP Rocky’s son: ‘Fat man’

Rihanna blessed her Navy with a rare glimpse of her 9-month-old son.

The "Diamonds" singer, who is expecting a second child with her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, took to Instagram Sunday to share a photo of her baby boy looking teary-eyed.

"my son when he found out his sibling is going to the Oscars and not him," joked Rihanna, who is set to perform her Academy Award-nominated song "Lift Me Up" at the March 12 ceremony.

The pregnant superstar then told her 145 million followers to swipe through her carousel post to see a throwback clip of her "fat man" adorably watching the music video for her track from the "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" soundtrack.

Rihanna, 35, and the "L$D" rapper, 34, have yet to reveal their son's name.

"MR.MAYERS ❤️," Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, gushed in the comments section.

Several of Rihanna's famous friends also flooded her post.

"That face 😍😍😍," Cara Delevingne wrote.

"Can't wait mommmyyyyy," Gigi Hadid chimed in.

"that little face😭," Ashley Graham added.

"😍😍😍😍 so cute!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️," Lindsay Lohan commented.

"😂😍 girl bring our nephew to the Oscars," rapper Bia quipped.

"Cutie PIE❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️," Viola Davis wrote.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced last month that Rihanna would sing "Lift Me Up" during Hollywood's biggest night this year.

The tune is up for Best Original Song and marks Rihanna's first Oscar nomination.


She co-wrote it as a tribute to "Black Panther" actor Chadwick Boseman, who died of colon cancer in August 2020 at age 43.

The news of the Fenty Beauty founder's Academy Awards performance came shortly after she headlined the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show, in which she debuted her baby bump.

Page Six exclusively reported at the time that Rocky looked "happy" and "grateful" while hitting an afterparty following Rihanna's pregnancy reveal.

Rihanna recently opened up about motherhood while posing for the March 2023 British Vogue cover with her partner and their son.


"I'm literally the girl trying to get into the boys club, waiting for my turn," she told the magazine. "He is obsessed with his father. And I'm like: 'Didn't I give birth to you? What is going on?'"

Rihanna added that her son and his dad have an "undeniable" connection.

"The second Rocky makes eye contact with him, he is on fire," she shared. "The whole thing they say about sons and moms, it's a myth.


Sons and fathers is crazy."

Rihanna and Rocky announced they were expecting their first child in January 2022 while going for a stroll together in his native Harlem with her baby bump on display. They welcomed their son that May.

While Rihanna has known Rocky for years, they didn't start dating until late 2020. By May 2021, he called her the "love of [his] life."

The "Umbrella" singer previously dated Chris Brown, Drake and fellow billionaire Hassan Jameel.
