THE internet lost it this week after power couple A$AP Rocky and Rihanna revealed they are expecting their first child, a baby whose destiny it is to surely become the most stylish infant of all time.
In pictures taken by photographer Miles Diggs, otherwise known as Diggzy, Rihanna is seen strolling through the chilly streets of Harlem, New York City, with a bump showing underneath a vintage pink $8,000 Chanel coat from the 1996 fall/winter collection.
33-year-old A$AP Rocky, who grew up in Harlem, is by her side in the images sporting a denim Carhartt jacket and black leather trousers and boots, perhaps keeping it low-key enough to make sure all the attention was on his Grammy-winning girlfriend.
In one photo they are seen walking underneath the Riverside Drive Viaduct holding hands, while in another A$AP kisses the Fenty designer on the forehead.
The couple had been friends for years but their romance was rumoured to have begun in 2020 when Rihanna split from her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel after three years together.
After linking up at the Yams Day Benefit Concert in Brooklyn in January 2020, then again when A$AP appeared in a Fenty Skin campaign, Rihanna interviewed the Fashion Killa rapper for GQ.
Rumours about a relationship continued through to the end of 2020 when a source told Entertainment Tonight in December: “They have always had amazing chemistry, and Rihanna relates to A$AP, and it feels natural, easy and fun. She feels very comfortable around him since they’ve known each other for such a long time and also feels a connection to him because his dad is from Barbados.”
Then, in May 2021 interview with GQ, A$AP opened up about their relationship for the first time when he referred to Rihanna as “the love of my life” and “my lady”.
