Rihanna showed off her newborn second son Riot Rose for the first time in an adorable family photoshoot on Tuesday.
The singer, 35, who welcomed her baby boy with beau A$AP Rocky, 34, on August 1, looked radiant as she cradled Riot in a sweet home photoshoot with their firstborn RZA, 16 months,
Little Riot wore a pink jumpsuit and boots as Rihanna and A$AP doted on him, while RZA rode on his father’s shoulders.
The Umbrella hitmaker looked incredible in a denim hooded jacket and navy blue pantaleggings in the shoot while A$AP sported a white tank top and Bottega Veneta printed leather jeans, before adding on a green plaid coat.
The family were seen stepping out with their two sons for the adorable shoot – which marks their first public outing since the birth.
Rihanna and the rapper welcomed RZA Athelston Mayers in May 2022 with the star revealing her second pregnancy during her Superbowl performance in February this year.
As per the birth certificate obtained by The Blast, Riot was born at Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles at 7:41 a.m.
With her legion of devoted followers flooding X, previously known as Twitter, the name won huge praise from adoring fans who excitedly praised the couple for the moniker – and lauded the family for their all-R names.
As well as excited messages from fans about the ‘unique and meaningful’ names, one devotee noting that Riot starts with the first two letters of Rihanna’s name and Rose with the first two letters of Rocky.
Last month it was reported that the singer now feels her family is ‘complete’. According to People, it appears the businesswoman and her rapper beau do not have plans for any other children.
A source told the publication: ‘Rihanna feels her family is now complete’ and also added: ‘it’s something she’s always wanted.’
The Barbados born superstar previously opened up about motherhood in an interview with British Vogue in March.
The stunning star said: ‘Having a kid honestly unlocks another side of life where you’re now in the matrix with the people who’ve already had kids. You come to have a different respect for moms and dads.’
She went on to say that ‘everything changes when you have a baby.’
‘Oh my God, it’s legendary. It’s everything. You really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever…
‘You literally try to remember it – and there are photos of my life before – but the feeling, the desires, the things that you enjoy, everything, you just don’t identify with it because you don’t even allow yourself mentally to get that far because…
‘Because it doesn’t matter.’
Speaking of her son’s birth she shared: ‘Essentially, from one person I became two. You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It’s nuts. And oh, my gosh, those first days are insane. You don’t sleep. At all. Not even if you wanted to.’
The pair carefully selected the name RZA for their first son.
Their boy’s name is a tribute to producer and rapper RZA, 54, leader of the Wu-Tang Clan, whose real name is Robert Fitzgerald Diggs. It is also a nod to A$AP’s middle name.
Rihanna and A$AP started dating in 2020 after having been linked professionally as early as 2013.
The couple sparked marriage rumours when they were at the 2023 Cannes Lions Festival on June 21.
A$AP referred to Rihanna as his ‘wife’ during his Spotify concert.
He said as Rihanna grinned in the crowd: ‘I’d like to dedicate this song to my beautiful wife in the motherf****** building!’.
But the pair have stayed silent on whether they secretly got hitched.
