Get the champagne flutes ready, congratulations are in order. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have welcomed their first child. Yup. After months of arguably the most legendary pregnancy wardrobe of all time, the bare baby bump era is over and Riri junior has arrived. Please, all rise for showbiz royalty.

After the happy news hit the internet last night, everyone has been racing to Google ‘Did Rihanna have her baby’, ‘Rihanna baby pictures’, and ‘Rihanna baby name’. So, keep reading for everything you need to know about who we are already certain will be the best dressed kid on the planet.

When did Rihanna have her baby?

Rihanna gave birth to her first child on Friday, 13 May, according to reports from TMZ. Although Rihanna and A$AP are yet to confirm their baby’s exact birthday, if insiders are correct, then that means RiRi’s baby is a Taurus.

Tauruses are known to be intelligent, hardworking, laidback and stubborn and famous faces that fall under the sign include Adele, David Beckham, Cher, and even Queen Elizabeth. So, baby RiRi is in good company.

Is Rihanna’s baby a boy or a girl?

After Rihanna was spotted being overwhelmed at the cuteness of a baby girl’s trench coat in Couture Kids boutique in LA and buying up an orange ballerina dress in Target, everyone was convinced that Rihanna was about to welcome a daughter. But, plot twist, she duped us all –it’s a boy!

Yet, regardless of the sex, it’s clear Rihanna is ecstatic to welcome her first child either way: ‘They’re going to teach me more than I could ever teach them,’ she told Vogue earlier this year. ‘I want them to go for it. I want to see who they are in the world, who they become. Because I’m just here to keep them on the rails – a passenger as much as the driver.’

What’s Rihanna’s baby’s name?

Rihanna and A$AP are yet to announce the name they’ve chosen for their bundle of joy. But fans have already started making predictions on Twitter. As Rihanna’s full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, while A$AP’s is Rakim Mayers, loads of people think their baby’s name will begin with an R, too—finally an alliterative family dynasty big enough to rival the Kardashians…

While Rihanna is from Barbados, A$AP also has a Bajan background, and insiders have previously told reporters that the couple are keen to acknowledge their heritage when naming their child.

Where are the pictures of Rihanna’s baby?

Rihanna’s pregnancy pictures have to be the most talked about maternity shots since Demi Moore’s naked Vanity Fair cover in 1991. From her black mesh Met Gala look to the endless sea of crop tops and fur coats, she really has given us everything.

But now their baby is here, Rihanna and A$AP are likely to be much more private. Let’s not forget that Rihanna announced the news of her pregnancy on her own terms, with pre-authorised paparazzi shots from her favourite entertainment photographer Miles Diggs (aka Diggzy). So, any pictures you see of Rihanna’s baby online aren’t the real deal just yet - but keep alert for that first Instagram post.

Is Rihanna going to have more children?

Although Rihanna has only just given birth to her first child, she’s previously confirmed that she’d like at least three or four children in her life. Speaking to Vogue in 2020, she said: ‘The only thing that matters is happiness, that’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That’s the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love.’
