A$AP Rocky was infatuated with Rihanna long before she started paying attention to him, According to sources, the pair were friends while she dated billionaire Hassan Jameel, but after their relationship ended in 2020, rumors of her romantic involvement with the rapper started to swirl.

Later in August, a source revealed how enamored they were with each other and claimed the romance came easily because they were friends first before anything else. Now they have added a child to the mix, and fans expect them to fall even deeper in love.



Sources close to A$AP Rocky and Rihanna have claimed that their child, a healthy baby boy, arrived on May 13 in Los Angeles, where they remain while the new mother recovers, but nobody knows what he will be called.

In fact, Rihanna has given a heads up on how she will act as a mother.
