Reports That Rihanna Gave Birth Surfaced In Late August
Additionally, the outlet was unable to confirm whether the singer delivered the baby at a hospital or via home birth.
In May, the “Diamonds” singer revealed that her second pregnancy was “so different” from her first with son RZA Athelston Mayers, as per The Shade Room.
“It’s so different from the first one… Just everything… no cravings, tons of nausea, everything’s different…”
However, despite the differences, the 35-year-old added that she was “enjoying it” and feeling “good” and “energetic.”
As The Shade Room previously reported, Rihanna revealed she and A$AP Rocky were expecting their second child during her Super Bowl halftime performance in February.
At the time, the singer had given birth to their first son, RZA, nine months prior, in May 2022.
