Rihanna celebrates the ‘magic’ of motherhood by flaunting her bare belly in throwback pregnancy photos
Rihanna threw it back to her 2022 pregnancy by flaunting her bare belly on Instagram.
The 35-year-old megastar – who recently celebrated her son RZA’s first birthday – posted a collection of snaps from her pregnancy photoshoot on Thursday and gushed about her son in the caption.
Rihanna wrote: ‘Here’s a little series I call “Rub on ya ti**ies” in honor of my first pregnancy, embracing motherhood like a g, and the magic that this body made!
‘Baby RZA… he in there not having a clue how nuts his mama is, or how obsessed he bout to make me #maternityshoot2022 #tobecontinued.’
In her gorgeous slideshow, the Fenty mogul rocked a black G-string and posed up a storm in what appeared to be a tropical locale.
Ice Spice and Kathy Hilton sent their love to the superstar in her comments section while her Fenty Beauty brand wrote: ‘Giving us everything! Beauty, grace, bawdyyy.’
Last week DailyMail.com revealed that the pop star named her son RZA Athelston Mayers after exclusively obtaining a copy of the little boy’s certificate of live birth.
Celebrating the milestone of RZA’s birthday on Saturday, Rihanna’s partner A$AP Rocky, 34, posted a selection of sweet family snaps to Instagram and revealed the origin of their baby boy’s name.
The rapper confirmed that RZA was named after the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan, writing in his caption: ‘”WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN,” HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY TO MY 1st BORN . RZA❤️’
Rocky’s Instagram caption was in reference to the late Wu member Ol’ Dirty Bastard and his disruptive 1998 Grammys speech — which the rapper also included as a clip among the photos — where he stated, ‘Wu Tang is for the children.’
Rihanna and Rocky started dating in 2020 after years of longtime friendship and musical collaboration.
Earlier this year, the Rude Boy hitmaker revealed that she and Rocky were expecting again when she debuted a new baby bump during her show-stopping Super Bowl halftime performance on February 12 in Glendale, Arizona.
After the Super Bowl and pregnancy reveal, the couple appeared on the March cover of Vogue and Rihana gushed about her private life.
Speaking to the magazine, Rihanna said Rocky is her ‘best friend’ and admitted she can’t remember what her life was like before having her son in May 2022.
She said of becoming a mother: ‘It’s everything. You really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever.’
But during her incredible appearance at the Met Gala this year, Rihanna shared with ET that her latest pregnant was ‘so different’ from the first one: ‘No cravings. Tons of nausea. Everything’s different, but I’m enjoying it.’
She added that she was ‘in love’ with her littlest one: ‘I’m obsessed and I don’t even feel guilty about it.’
