Rihanna made fans drool when she posted a naked shot proudly displaying her new self titled coffee table book, but lots are left questioning what’s going on behind the scenes as pregnancy rumors continue to swirl. RiRi seemed to add more fuel to the fire by sharing the revealing shot but covering up her stomach, something she usually shows off. Hours later, the Fenty Beauty Founder showed up to the British Fashion Awards and speculation grew even more when she appeared to be sporting a tiny baby bump.
The 31-year-old showed up to the awards and caused a stir, not just for what she was wearing but who she was walking with. Rihanna posed on the red carpet alongside A$AP Rocky and fans couldn’t stop gushing about how cute the duo would be if they took their friendship to another level. “IM CRYING I JUST DAW RIHANNA AND ASAP ROCKY,” tweeted a fan. “Rihanna and Asap Rocky. that’s it. that’s the entire tweet,” wrote another. Some even hoped a mini-me would come from their appearance together. “I’m just saying that ASAP Rocky and Rihanna would have some beautiful ass children,” a follower wrote. “OMFG have her baby child!” directed another.
Rihanna stunned in a mint-green dress for the event, but many couldn’t help but notice that she seemed to be rocking a baby bump under her satin mini. “We see the baby bump @rihanna,” someone on Twitter wrote. “Rihanna? baby bump? Or bloated from Thanksgiving?” questioned a second. “Rihanna got a baby bump underneath that blue dress she had on today IDC IDC,” added another. Sporting a tight pastel dress with a diamond halter top and choker, the singer paired the look with a matching sheer dress coat, gloves, and heels that laced up around her ankles. When she turned to the back, she revealed her dress was also adorned with a thick diamond chain. Rihanna, who was awarded the Urban Luxe Award during the night, pulled together the ensemble with long braids in her hair.
This isn’t the first time fans have questioned if Rihanna is with child. Pregnancy speculation started after fans suggested she was sporting a baby bump during her Diamond Ball in September. She also raised eyebrows when she gave an interview during the event where she talked about giving birth to a strong black woman. Since then, she’s only continued to add to the speculation by strategically covering her stomach. But fans aren’t the only ones pressuring RiRi to have a baby. She got choked up when Vogue boss Anna Wintour asked her if she was hoping for a little one in the near future. As The Blast reported, some of Rihanna’s crew believe the rumors are true and told us they think she’s expecting after working with her on a recent shoot. If Rihanna is expecting, this will be her first child with her billionaire businessman, Hassan Jameel, who she has been dating seriously since 2017. She’s been mum on the baby rumors but has been sending mixed signals in recent weeks.
