Born in 1988 in Barbados, the beautiful Rihanna first gained public attention with her debut single, “Pon de Replay.” Since then, she has proven herself to become an icon of a whole generation. Her golden voice has moved millions of people around the world to tears or to dance. Among her biggest hits, we can mention “Diamonds” and “Umbrella”. In a relationship with rapper ASAP Rocky since 2021, the singer already has two children: RZA, born in May 2022, and Riot Rose, born in August 2023. But rumors are circulating online that the star might be expecting another child. So how can we separate fact from fiction?
In today’s fast-paced news world, everything is about being in the moment. And on social media, people often have the same mindset. When a scoop comes out, everyone wants to be among the first to share the information or to react. But a little fact-checking is always useful… Indeed, as of November 12, several certified X accounts (formerly Twitter) shared a photo showing Rihanna with a “lovely round belly.” Accompanying this image was a stunning piece of news indicating: “Rihanna confirmed that she & ASAP Rocky are expecting their 3rd baby.”
From tweets to stories, the rumor spread, convincing thousands of people. Among them were enthusiasts, but also fans fearing that a new pregnancy might delay the star’s return to the stage. Quickly, several users pointed out that the viral photo was actually taken when Rihanna was pregnant with Riot Rose in May 2023. For now, the artist has not confirmed any pregnancy. This is evidence that sometimes on social media, it’s necessary to take the time to get informed from reliable sources, rather than taking the first photo at face value!
Entertainment Tonight, an American newspaper, made important revelations in October about the singer’s career. A source close to the star indicated that she plans to go on tour worldwide in 2024 and 2025. According to this media, Rihanna also plans to release a new album. In recent years, the public has already waited a lot for the star. Last spring, she caused a sensation by returning to the stage at the Super Bowl. And for good reason: her last show was in 2018. In recent years, she has devoted a lot of time and energy to her cosmetic and lingerie brands (FENTY).
