A$AP Rocky and Rihanna recently surprised fans with some pretty major news: the Fenty goddess is pregnant with their first child. The soon-to-be parents were seen out and about in NYC, and the world just happened to catch a glimpse of RiRi's baby bump. Here's what we know so far.

On January 31, the Anti artist was spotted with the rapper on the streets of New York, wearing a revealing pink jacket. The jacket exposed her unmistakable baby bump, over which hung a gold cross and colorful jewels. A$AP Rocky, who has been dating RiRi for a little over a year, was seen by the singer's side, kissing her forehead. The pair have been romantically linked since November 2020, when it was confirmed that they were dating after years of friendship. And while we'll have to wait and see how their next chapter plays out, it appears parenthood is long overdue for these two...

Back in May, A$AP discussed his and Rihanna's romance with GQ, noting that his now baby mama is "the love of [his] life." In response to a question about how it felt to be in a relationship, he revealed, "So much better. So much better when you got 'the One.' She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She's the One." The rapper also shared his feelings about fatherhood, saying he believes it is "in [his] destiny" to have a family. "I think I'd be an incredible, remarkably overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very." We couldn't agree more.

Rihanna has also previously shared how she feels about starting a family. In May 2020, she told British Vogue that she thinks she will have "3 or 4" children, regardless of her relationship status. "I feel like society makes me want to feel like, 'Oh, you got it wrong …' They diminish you as a mother if there's not a dad in your kids' lives," said the singer. "But 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." The couple has yet to announce their due date, but we've got a feeling this saga's just getting started. Stay tuned.
