It’s hard to believe Rihanna’s son is almost one year old. On April 1, the “Diamonds” singer shared an adorable video that shows just how much her firstborn has grown.
“Look who doesn’t want mommy to workout,” Rihanna captioned a video that features her holding her child as he watches what sounds like a kid’s program with a big smile. Though Rihanna’s face is kept off camera, she can be seen wearing a Savage x Fenty sports bra, which indicates she was ready to get her sweat on.
Rihanna shares her 11-month-old son with her partner A$AP Rocky. Less than a year after welcoming the baby boy in May 2022, Riri revealed she was pregnant with their second child during her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance on February 12.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky waited seven months before sharing their son’s face with the world in December 2022, and they continue to keep his name under wraps by referring to him as “baby” in interviews. “They’re keeping things low-key so they can enjoy their little family,” a source told Entertainment Tonight in August 2022. “Privacy has become increasingly important to the couple. When it was just the two of them, they’d go out all hours of the day and night, and interact with fans. Now, with the baby, they’re a little more protective.”
Unfortunately, it was later reported that Rihanna felt forced into sharing the first glimpse of her son in order to get ahead of the paparazzi who were planning to release unapproved images. Despite this alleged breach of her privacy, Rihanna’s been having fun with her son on social media ever since.

Prior to her Oscars performance in March, Rihanna shared a throwback video of her son watching his mom’s music videos along with a more recent photo of the little boy in tears. She captioned the post, “my son when he found out his sibling is going to the Oscars and not him.”
