Rihanna and A$AP Rocky enjoyed a little date in the dead of the night, taking a break from parenting to get some fresh air at 4 A.M. Paparazzi captured the couple walking in New York City, Rihanna dressed in a light blue crop top with jeans. Rocky also had a fashion moment, pairing a vest with a long sleeve top and his own baggy jeans.
Rihanna welcomed the two’s first child together, a baby boy, in May. The couple has not revealed their son’s name, exact birth date, or shown any photos of him. But Rihanna hinted to ELLE.com in March that she would go to great length to protect his privacy when discussing what Real Housewives mom she wanted to channel.
“Teresa [Giudice] from Jersey does not play about her kids,” she said. “She will flatten you about those kids. And that resonates with me a lot because I feel like that’s the type of mom I’m going to be. Psycho about it…You talk about my kids, it’s over.”
Rihanna and Rocky have weathered a bit of controversy this year too. In April, Rocky was abruptly arrested at LAX in connection to a November 2021 shooting, then released on bail. The couple did not release a statement about the incident, but a source told Entertainment Tonight at the time that the arrest blindsided Rihanna, who was still pregnant.
“Rihanna made a point to navigate the public side of her pregnancy on her own terms and now suddenly things seem out of her control,” the source said. The singer has chosen to stand by her boyfriend.
