Rihanna is Very Happy with Her Child
Rihanna loves motherhood.
The singer, who welcomed her first child with A$AP Rocky earlier this month, is settling into her new role. A source close to the couple tells PEOPLE that both mom and dad are excited to be parents.
“Being a new parent is an adjustment, of course, but they do a great job. Their baby boy is healthy and Rihanna admires him,” says an insider. “She was really excited to be pregnant. He loved it. Meeting his son was, of course, very special.”
Rihanna and Rocky’s baby boy was born in Los Angeles on May 13 and has never taken his eyes off her. “Rihanna barely leaves her side. She’s a great mom,” the source adds. “She wanted to give birth in Los Angeles because she has a big house with a garden. She likes to sit outside with her baby.”
Billionaire Mogul “doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to get back to work,” says an insider, adding, “[She] loves spending quiet time with her baby.”

Rihanna Loved Being a Mother
Back in January, Rihanna and Rocky announced that they were expecting their first child when Rihanna was photographed walking around Harlem with her baby bump on display.
During an interview with ELLE, Rihanna joked that she would be a “pyscho” mom. “You talk about my kids, it’s over,” she told the magazine while comparing her parenting style to “Real Housewives of New Jersey’s” Teresa Giudice.
Rocky also gushed about becoming a dad. “I’m proud, man,” he told N.O.R.E. on “Drink Champs.”
In the days after she welcomed her son, TMZ claimed to obtain photos of Rihanna out for the first time. However, she says the images were taken before she gave birth. “This was weeks ago Lolol,” she commented.
