“How the gang pulled up to black history month,” the Grammy winner, 33, captioned a Wednesday, February 2, photo of herself standing in a bathroom with her bare belly on display. The Barbados native pulled her orange and blue jersey dress up to gaze down at her stomach in the shot.

Rihanna’s baby-to-be is “due this spring,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly after the Savage x Fenty creator’s Monday, January 31, reveal.
“Rihanna’s going to be an amazing mother,” the insider added at the time. “She’s had some practice already with her nieces and nephews. She can’t wait to be a mom! … She’s embracing her pregnancy body and sees it as a beautiful thing. She’s been taking care of herself and her growing baby. ASAP is attending to her every need, definitely treating her like a princess.”
The lingerie designer’s dad, Ronald Fenty, exclusively told Us that he “couldn’t be happier” for the expectant star, gushing, “I actually jumped for joy when I heard. She’s always wanted to have kids and she’s going to be an amazing mom.”
The Fenty Beauty creator sparked romance speculation with Rocky, also 33, in 2019, and the New York native confirmed their relationship to GQ two years later.

A source exclusively told Us at the time that the couple were “madly in love” and “see each other as life partners,” explaining, “They don’t need a piece of paper to be happy, but Ri’s a real romantic and her friends and family — her mom, especially — would love to see her married.”
