Singer Rihanna is expecting her first child: the 33-year-old Barbados pop diva is already well into her pregnancy. About the “interesting” position of the star became known thanks to the shooting of the famous photographer Miles Diggs. Diggs photographed Rihanna and her lover, rapper Rakim Myers, while walking around Harlem, the musician’s native New York area. Rihanna defiantly opened a bright pink down jacket and showed the world a round tummy. There is not the slightest doubt that in the near future the couple will become parents. Pictures of Rihanna and her boyfriend Diggs shared on Instagram, confirming that the singer is expecting a baby.
The novel of Rihanna and Rakim Myers (he acts under the pseudonym ASAP Rocky) became known in 2020. And the musicians met much earlier, they worked together on several joint projects. Last year, Rihanna and ASAP Rocky made their first public appearance as a couple, posing on the red carpet for the Met Gala Costume Institute Ball. The lovers did not comment on their relationship for a long time, and only in 2021 did the rapper speak about his feelings for Rihanna. The 33-year-old musician confirmed that he has the most serious intentions.
– Being in a relationship is much better. Much nicer when you have that one. She’s worth a million others… I’ll be an incredible, wonderful father. I will have a beautiful child, – said the rapper.
Many fans were surprised that the singer and musician decided to have a baby so quickly, because not so much time had passed since the beginning of their romance. In addition, Rihanna’s fans were counting on her soon return to the stage. At the end of last year, the artist appeared at one of the events in a tight dress. In social networks, then they discussed her rounded figure, but secular gossips decided that the pop diva had simply recovered.
Before Myers, Rihanna dated Arab billionaire Hassan Jameel. For his sake, the singer moved from the US to the UK and spent three years in London. Hassan is one of the richest people in Saudi Arabia, his family fortune, according to Forbes, is $1.5 billion. During the affair with him, Rihanna practically left the stage. It was rumored that the billionaire dreamed that she would become a housewife and say goodbye to show business. However, the couple eventually broke up.
By the way, Rihanna herself is a non-poor girl. In August 2021, she topped the list of the richest female musicians on the planet. According to Forbes magazine, her net worth is $1.7 billion. Moreover, she earned most of her wealth not at all with music, but with the production of cosmetics. The singer owns a 50% stake in the Fenty Beauty brand she founded (her stake in this business is estimated at $ 1.4 billion). Her other business, Savage x Fenty, is worth about $270 million more.
The singer founded the cosmetic brand Fenty Beauty together with the international group of companies LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, a manufacturer of luxury goods. The project was so successful that it significantly enriched the singer and her co-investors: powder and lipstick from Fenty Beauty break sales records.
