Cousins! Rihanna has been known to break the internet every now and again. From fashion forward moments to reaching new heights within her multi-business ventures, along with effortlessly serving relationship goals with A$AP Rocky or just simply being the certified bad gal that she is. However the viral Queen’s latest tending moment has been topped by an adorable baby boy that will soon call her mommy, as Rihanna shared the very first photos of her son!
A series of images were shared exclusively with fellow media outlet Hollywood Unlocked over the weekend of Rihanna and A$AP’s gorgeous son. Baby boy also made his TikTok debut as she shared a video clip of him all smiles as he reached for her cellphone.
It appears that it wasn’t the couple’s original plan though. Following circulation of the now viral photos, Hollywood Unlocked CEO Jason Lee took to Twitter to share the background story of why Rihanna decided to share the photos with him.
“Since the new photos of ASAP and Rihanna’s baby is out let me tell you how this happened. Yesterday she FaceTimed me to tell me that paparazzi took unauthorized photos of their baby and planned to release them, “ Jason tweeted. “So she said if anyone was going to put it out she wanted me to.”
He continued, “She wanted BLACK MEDIA to be the one to do it since she wasn’t going to be given the choice. First, I’m honored they would trust me and kinda sad it had to be that way. I wish they were given the choice. Kids are off limits here at HU. I guess some folks don’t care.”
“But what’s the most telling is how in the midst of her baby being revealed without her approval she wanted black media to get it out first.” Jason concluded, “I wish more people thought about black media like this.”
Social media users tapped in following his statement to ask, “So basically she was “forced” to show her kid???” Jason responded in tweeting “Sadly yes.”
Though it is extremely saddening and ultimately shocking that the new mom was forced to share photographs of her child before she was fully ready. We are pleased to know that Rihanna had some sort of handle in the way her child was introduced to the world. Most importantly his name is still under warps and he is an absolute cutie 🏿
