Rihanna and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child together. The news was reported by People magazine after Rihanna stepped out in New York City with her baby bump on full display. A few days later, Rihanna confirmed the news with a photo on her Instagram account.
“How the gang pulled up to black history month,” she captioned a pic of herself, looking down at her growing tummy. She also included a few other shots from a paparazzi-style photoshoot in Harlem. The photo has received more than 17 million likes, making it one of the most popular posts that Rihanna has ever shared.
Messages of congratulations started pouring in, and the comments section on the post quickly filled up. One of those comments, however, pretty much convinced fans that Rihanna is expecting twins. That comment came former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Gigi Hadid.

Rihanna’s Baby Bump Photo Had Fans Questioning Whose Bathroom She Was in

“Rihanna looks so cute in that bathroom pic. I’m so f****** happy for my girl. After all the s*** she’s endured with other folks, she’s happily starting her little family,” another Twitter user commented.
