He’s here and he’s adorable! Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have finally unveiled the first photos of Riot Rose, their new baby boy and second child together, through a Diggzy-helmed photshoot posted to the photographer’s Instagram page.
In the image, Rihanna, decked out in a denim and navy streetwear-nodding outfit, smizes for the camera while RZA, her firstborn son with the rapper, holds on to her leg. A smiling Rocky complements her style with a pair of denim jeans and a white sleeveless tank top as he gently holds baby Riot up to the camera. “It’s a FAMILY thing 💪🏽,” photographer Diggzy captioned the post. “Welcome to the World Riot Rose 🌹” He also shared additional snaps of the family in his Instagram Stories.
Rihanna revealed her second pregnancy on Feb. 12 during her headlining Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show performance. The “Lift Me Up” singer confirmed that she was expecting through a British Vogue cover story featuring her family, which was released days after the performance. Rihanna’s second pregnancy was revealed mere months after she gave birth to RZA Athelston Mayers, who arrived in May 2022.
RiRi and Rocky’s new son’s name appears to be a reference to “RIOT (Rowdy Pipe’n),” a 2023 Rocky track in which he raps, “Luxe balm up in my palm/ New collab’ with my baby mom.”
On Friday (Sept. 15), Rihanna launched a long-awaited Puma collaboration. Dubbed Fenty x Puma Avanti C, the new sneaker line marks the singer-actress’ first under a new partnership with Puma. The chrome-centric sneaker was made available for both children and adults.
