Rihanna and A$AP Rocky just shocked the world by casually announcing that they are expecting a baby—here is everything you need to know about the soon-to-be parents.

Rihanna, the richest female musician in the world, and A$AP Rocky have been friends for nearly a decade and dating for a few years. 

In May 2021, Rocky confirmed their relationship during an interview with GQ as he spoke gingerly about his relationship with the singer. In the interview, the rapper reportedly was 'beaming like a teenager whose crush just accepted his prom invite' and when he referred to Rihanna he said that she was “The love of [his] life,” and he called her, “My lady.”

Rocky added that it's “so much better when you got the One. She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones.” He added that he was now embracing monogamy with Rihanna as he said, “I think when you know, you know. She's the One.”

When did Rihanna and A$AP Rocky get together?

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have not confirmed when they started dating but rumors have been swirling about them since 2012 when the pair first collaborated together and then again in 2013 when Rocky opened for Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour.

The rumor mill then began again in 2018 when Rocky was invited to a few different events with Rihanna such as the Diamond Ball and the Louis Vuitton show. 

In January 2020, Rihanna's relationship with her long-term boyfriend Hassan Jameel ends, and rumors about Rocky and Rihanna begin again. 

Rocky and Rihanna collaborate on skincare products for Fenty Skin in August of 2020 and the pair partake in a one-on-one interview for GQ about their skin and friendship.

At the end of the year, Rihanna and Rocky are spotted in New York together and by Christmas, the pair were spotted on a cruise together in Barbados. Since then the couple has been spotted in attendance at the Met Gala 2021 together, and have been an official couple ever since.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky's pregnancy announcement

The couple announced their pregnancy on Monday, January 31, 2022. The couple was shot by the celebrity photographer Miles Diggs who showcased the couple in designer clothing as they walked the streets of Harlem and cradled Rihanna's baby bump.

Rocky wore a Carharrt jacket with vinyl trousers and Rihanna wore loose-fit jeans and an oversized pink coat that was left partially open to reveal her bump. The singer wore her long hair in a half-up bun and wore a Christian Lacroix necklace so that her bump was covered with a variety of gemstones.

Where to buy Rihanna's pink coat from her pregnancy announcement

Rihanna wore a hot pink archive Chanel coat that was fastened with just a single Gripoix button. The long padded silk coat had gold, shiny buttons that perfectly complemented her gold accessories and other jewelry items. 

The vintage coat is from Chanel's fall/winter collection of 1996 / 1997 and is therefore not available to purchase from the site anymore. However, there are some alternatives that are like this designer coat that you can buy. Ganni sells a similar long-line pink puffer coat that is sure to keep you warm and on-trend and is certainly one of the best winter coats for women, to keep you snug.
