The singer and her boyfriend, US rapper Asap Rocky, are said to have become parents of a boy on May 13th. The name of the celebrity offspring is not yet known.

According to media reports, pop star Rihanna (34) and her boyfriend, US rapper Asap Rocky (33), have become parents for the first time.

The singer from the Caribbean island of Barbados gave birth to a boy in Los Angeles on May 13, reports the celebrity portal “TMZ”. The child’s name is not yet known. The TV station CNN and the magazine “People” also reported on the birth.

Rihanna (“Umbrella”) and Asap Rocky (“Praise the Lord”) announced with a series of photos in January that they are expecting a child together. In April, the artist showed off her baby bump in a photo shoot for the fashion magazine “Vogue”. The 34-year-old also graces the cover of the May issue in an orange-red, skin-tight lace bodysuit.

Asap Rocky made headlines about a month ago after being temporarily arrested in Los Angeles. The musician was accused of assault using a weapon, the police said at the time. The rapper is considered a suspect in an incident in November last year in Hollywood.

Second richest entertainer after Oprah

According to the police, a dispute between two acquaintances had escalated, which ended with gun violence. One victim was slightly injured. Asap Rocky was released on bail after being arrested.

Grammy winner Rihanna is also successful as an entrepreneur: The US business magazine “Forbes” estimated her fortune last summer at $ 1.7 billion (about 1.6 billion euros). She is the second richest entertainer after TV presenter Oprah Winfrey. Much of the fortune came from Rihanna’s cosmetics line, it said.
