Rihanna gave Vogue her most in-depth interview yet ahead of her due date later this year. The singer candidly discussed her pregnancy, revealing it wasn’t quite planned, along with how her boyfriend and baby’s father A$AP Rocky privately went from her friend to her partner.
“People don’t get out of the friend zone very easily with me,” she started. “And I certainly took a while to get over how much I know him and how much he knows me, because we also know how much trouble we can land each other in.”
Rihanna credited quarantining together as helping really build their relationship. “He became my family in that time,” she said. She revealed to the magazine the couple took a road trip in summer 2020 from Los Angeles to New York on a big tour bus. At every stop, they had fun. “I love the simple things but also the grand adventures,” she said. With Rocky, “There’s no pretentious my-brand-your-brand bullshit, it’s just us living. I just feel like I can do any part of life by his side.”
Vogue‘s reporter noted he called her during her interview, and they exchanged “I love yous” at the end. “What I love the most about us?” Rihanna told Vogue. “Transparency with everything: how we’re feeling, what our goals are, what our fears and insecurities are. The vulnerability to be able to say what you feel about each other.”
She said having a baby just happened for them when asked if it was a planned pregnancy. “Planning? I wouldn’t say planning. But certainly not planning against it,” she said. “I don’t know when I ovulate or any of that type of shit. We just had fun. And then it was just there on the test. I didn’t waste any time. I called him inside and showed him. Then I was in the doctor’s office the next morning and our journey began.”
Rihanna said with her baby’s gender, she didn’t want a reveal party. “When we’re ready to tell the world, we’ll just tell them,” she said.
Generally during her pregnancy, Rihanna feels as bold as ever. “I think I even say yes to more now because I know it will be different on the other side of this,” she said. “At first I expected some magical change, but really I remain who I am. None of the dials are turned down.”
And with her baby, Rihanna knows “they’re going to teach me more than I could ever teach them. And I want them to go for it. I want to see who they are in the world, who they become. Because I’m just here to keep them on the rails—a passenger as much as the driver.”
