According to reports, Rihanna became a mother of two on August 3 after secretly giving birth to her second child with ASAP Rocky in Los Angeles. It was rumored that the singer and rapper ASAP Rocky had been together for years, although they initially kept their relationship a secret.

However, in 2020, they sent the internet into a frenzy when they made their relationship debut and completely set it on fire when the couple confirmed they were welcoming a child together in 2022.

Rihanna surprised the world with a second pregnancy announcement after donning a red outfit that accentuated her growing baby bump during her Super Bowl halftime show just a few months after welcoming her first child.

Since confirming that they were expecting their first child together and welcoming their first son, Rihanna and ASAP Rocky were cautious about how they wanted to introduce their boy to the world.

Some fans were impressed with how well the "Diamonds" singer concealed her second son's birth — with one social media user writing, "She keeps it secret well. Good for her (sic)." Others were surprised by the gender of the Fenty Beauty founder's second baby.

"I thought she had a girl the second time, glad they are healthy and growing beautifully," one person commented, and another shared, "I thought she had a girl? What's really going on here? lol."

"I was hoping it was a girl so badly, but still congratulations," another fan shared, and a fifth wrote, "People just wanted it would be a girl. I thought she announced a long time ago it was a boy."

Rihanna Became an Extremely Protective Mom after Her 1st Son Was Born

Since confirming that they were expecting their first child together and welcoming their first son, Rihanna and ASAP Rocky were cautious about how they wanted to introduce their boy to the world.

The Barbados native understood that people were interested in knowing about her son but drew the line at the paparazzi taking unwanted pictures of her baby. As the parents, Rihanna felt that it was her and Rocky's decision on how they revealed their son to the world. The singer said:

"Throw me to the wolves. Do what you want with me. But he doesn't have a say in any of this. We've been protecting him thus far, and you don't have any consent to be posting photos or selling photos of my child, a minor."

The attempt to conceal their son from the public was successful for a while. Rihanna and ASAP Rocky's firstborn was almost one year old when his name, RZA Athelston Mayers, was revealed after publications obtained his birth certificate.

"She loves being a mom, so this is where her mind is at the moment. She is the happiest she has ever been," a source revealed.
