Rihanna shares first look at her and A$AP Rocky’s baby boy with adorable TikTok video – What else do we know about their child?
A$AP Rocky and Rihanna transitioned from working relationships to friends, and to lovers.
By now, it seems that everyone in the world has heard the news that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have welcomed their first child together.
For years, the two celebrities have faced dating accusations and continuously shut them down. They’ve essentially assured fans over the course of a decade that their relationship was strictly on a friendship level– despite the flirting and natural chemistry often captured by the media.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have spent years denying that their relationship is anything but platonic, but things finally changed when the rapper called her “the love of my life” in 2021.
When did ASAP Rocky and Rihanna first meet?
The pair were first linked in late 2019, but they keep details of their personal lives private. Rocky didn’t even confirm their romance until May 2021 (when he said Rihanna is “The One”), and they didn’t share their pregnancy news until the Fenty Beauty founder was more than halfway through her pregnancy in January.
When did Rihanna give birth to ASAP Rocky’s son?
Rihanna and the “Everyday” rapper welcomed a baby boy in Los Angeles, Us Weekly confirmed on May 13. A source exclusively told Us shortly after Rihanna gave birth that her relationship with Rocky was stronger than ever. “Their love for each other hasn’t changed. Rihanna is always supportive of him no matter what,” the insider said in June.
What is the name of Rihanna and ASAP Rocky’s son?
At the moment, Rihanna and Asap Rocky have not shared the name of their baby with their fans yet. Another source explained that the couple won’t release their son’s name right away either.
“Rihanna and ASAP have only shared the baby’s name with close family members,” a source told Us exclusively in May. “They are keeping it a secret until they’re ready to share it with the world.”
Seven months after giving birth to her and A$AP Rocky‘s first child, Rihanna has publicly shared an image of their son for the first time. On Dec. 17, the “Umbrella” singer posted a video of her baby boy on TikTok, marking her first post on the platform. She jokingly captioned the clip, “Hacked.”
In the edited video, the music artist’s son, whose name has not been made public, appears smiling while buckled into a car seat with a SensorSafe sensor for extra protection.
Rihanna’s first public appearance after giving birth was on July 2, 2022, to support her beau who was booked to perform at the GoPuff Delivers Wireless 2022.
Rihanna made her first public appearance on July 2nd since giving birth to her and ASAP Rocky‘s son in May.
The “Consideration” songstress, 34, attended GoPuff Delivers Wireless 2022, a 10-day music festival in London’s Crystal Palace Park to support her beau. Rocky, 33, was the opening night headliner on Friday, July 1. Rihanna’s ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, was a special guest performer. Kid Laroi, Lil Uzi Vert, and Don Toliver also took the stage.
Rihanna wore a black, feathered bomber jacket from Prada to the event with black leggings, and the look was topped off with hoop earrings and a statement choker necklace. She was spotted blowing a kiss to her love from the audience as security escorted her through the crowd. After the show, they hit up Star Fade Barber’s so Rocky could get a haircut.
Rihanna & A$AP Rocky’s son makes his TikTok debut
While she’s been open about talking about her infant son, the Barbadian singer and her beau, A$AP Rocky have yet to share his face with the world – until now, that is. On Saturday (December 17), the 34-year-old made her TikTok debut with a video of the little guy, which she aptly captioned, “Hacked.”
In the heartwarming video, he coos and smiles at Rih. “You tryna get mommy’s phone?” she asks her baby from behind the camera. Later on, in the same clip, we see the growing boy yawning as he watches out the car window.

Rihanna and Asap want to make more babies
US Magazine confirmed that the two will likely expand their brood eventually. “They want a big family for sure. Rihanna loved being pregnant and fully embraced her pregnancy body,” the source said.
Rocky previously hinted at more kids when he discussed how he hopes to raise his little ones. “I will always remind my [future] children to never lose their imagination, even as adults, no matter what. I actually love to watch cartoons,” the rapper told Dazed Magazine in an interview published two weeks after news of his son’s birth was confirmed. “I hope to raise open-minded children. Not people who discriminate. And I’m not trying to describe a saint, but realistically, I just want a cool child with cool parents.”
He added, “Things like diversity and versatility are important, and they’ll be embedded in the household.”
Are Asap Rocky and Rihanna engaged?
Multiple sources close to the couple told TMZ that Rihanna and Rocky are neither engaged nor married. The outlet’s sources said simply “the whole thing was just done for fun.”
