Rihanna loves motherhood.
The singer, who welcomed her first child with A$AP Rocky earlier this month, is adjusting to her new role. A source close to the couple told PEOPLE that both mom and dad are excited to become parents.
“Being a new parent is obviously a change, but they are doing great. Her baby is healthy and Rihanna is just in awe of him,” the insider says. “She was really so excited to be pregnant. she loved it. Of course it was also very special to meet her son.”
Rihanna and Rocky’s baby boy was born in LA on May 13th and she hasn’t let him out of her sight. “Rihanna hardly ever leaves his side. She’s an amazing mom,” adds the source. “She wanted to give birth in LA as she has a big house with a yard. She likes to sit outside with her baby.”
The billionaire “doesn’t appear to be in any rush to get back to work,” notes the insider, adding, “[She] loves to spend quiet time with her baby.”
Back in January, Rihanna and Rocky announced they were expecting their first child when Rihanna was photographed walking through Harlem with her baby bump on display.
During an interview with ELLE, Rihanna joked that she would be a “Pyscho” mom. “If you talk about my kids, it’s over,” she told the magazine while comparing her parenting style to Teresa Giudice from “Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
Rocky also gushed about becoming a father. “I’m proud man,” he told NORE on “Drink Champs.”
In the days after she welcomed her son, TMZ claimed to be receiving photos of Rihanna for the first time. However, she says the pictures were taken before the birth. “That was weeks ago lolol,” she commented.
