Rihanna officially has two children now, and that is the perfect amount for the singer and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, People reports. A source told the outlet, “Rihanna feels her family is now complete,” adding that having two kids is “something she’s always wanted.”
Rihanna and Rocky welcomed their second child, another baby boy, on August 3, per TMZ. The couple has not confirmed the news themselves. Sources told TMZ that their second baby’s name starts with an R, just like his big brother RZA’s.
Rihanna last addressed her ideal family size during an interview with British Vogue conducted before she revealed her second pregnancy. She was reminded that she once told the outlet that she wanted three or four kids. Rihanna responded with a laugh, “Oh shit. You really gotta be careful with your mouth.”
“Listen, I’m down for whatever,” she went on. “My wish would be I would like to have more kids but whatever God wants for me, I’m here. I’m open [to whatever baby sex next]. Girl, boy. Whatever.”
With their first baby, the couple had a preference—and they found out that they were having a boy before welcoming RZA to the world. They chose to keep this knowledge private.
“Rocky wanted to know. He wanted a boy,” Rihanna recalled. “At first he was open, then he was like, ‘Nah, I want a boy, I’m sure.’ I was just like, ‘Lord, please let this man get what he wants…’”
