Rihanna announced today that she’s pregnant with her first child – but fans had guessed months earlier that she was expecting.

From spotting her baby bump in Barbados to noticing her baggy outfits, the 33-year-old Bajan beauty’s eagle-eyed followers didn’t miss a trick when it came to her baby news.

Rihanna announced her pregnancy by showing off her baby bump while taking a stroll in Harlem with A$AP Rocky – who she began dating in 2020.

However, she had fuelled pregnancy rumours back in December when fans noted her growing stomach while she was in Barbados.

She had jetted to her home country to be named a national hero there.

The What’s My Name hitmaker sent the internet into meltdown when she wore a clingy orange halter-neck dress to the inauguration ceremony.

Many fans posted photos from the event on social media, claiming Rihanna has a visible baby bump in the gown.

One verified user, The Academy, wrote: “Rihanna is pregnant with her first child with A$AP Rocky,” and the tweet received thousands of retweets and favourites.

The rumour mill went further into overdrive when it was reported that Rihanna told employees in Barbados not to smoke around her.

A source claimed to MTO News: “Staff was told at her house, no drinking or smoking is allowed.

“[Rihanna] is pregnant, and wants to bring her baby in a healthy environment.”

In recent weeks, Rihanna had also been covering up more than usual during date nights with A$AP, opting for oversized shirts and dresses.

She covered her stomach with a huge gilet and puffer jacket last month and with an oversized football shirt days later.

And last week, fans commented in their droves on Rihanna’s baby bump, which was visible when she visited a Sephora store to greet the staff.

Users noticed her visibly extended stomach, despite the oversized hoodie and coat she was wearing.

Meanwhile, last year the singer admitted she wants three or four babies in the next 10 years.

When asked where she envisions herself in a decade, she told British Vogue: “Ten years? I’ll be 42! I’ll be ancient. I’ll have kids – three or four of ’em.”

When asked whether sh’d still have children if she hadn’t found the right partner, she added: “Hell, yeah. I feel like society makes me want to feel like, ‘Oh, you got it wrong …’

“They diminish you as a mother if there’s not a dad in your kids’ lives. But the only thing that matters is happiness, that’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child.

“That’s the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love.”

Rihanna also sparked pregnancy rumours when she attended the Met Gala with A$AP in September 2021.

Some fans wondered if she was hiding a baby bump in her dramatically oversized ensemble.

Riri and Rocky

Rumours began to swirl that Rihanna and A$AP were a thing back in 2018 when the two were spotted sitting close together at the Louis Vuitton show for Paris Fashion Week.

By the end of 2020, Rihanna and Rocky had been spotted together on numerous occasions, even taking a vacation together in Barbados.

While on vacation, the two were photographed kissing on a boat, seemingly confirming their relationship.

In a 2021 interview with, Rocky referred to Rihanna as “my lady” and the ”love of my life.”
