Rihanna has confessed that transitioning A$AP Rocky from friend to boyfriend took some time.
In a new interview with Vogue magazine, the music diva, who announced she was expecting her first child with the rapper in January, spoke up about the start of their relationship and falling pregnant, eschewing typical maternity attire in favor of high-fashion styles.
Rihanna claimed that she and Rocky had been friends for years before becoming serious during the Covid-19 lockdown, during which they made a road trip in a massive tour bus from Los Angeles to New York in the summer of 2020.
“It’s not easy for people to go out of the friend zone with me.” And it took me a long time to get past how well I knew him and how well he knew me, because we both know how much danger we can get ourselves into,” she explained.
“There’s no pretentious my-brand-your-brand b####, “just feel like I can do anything in life with him at my side,” Rihanna said.
When the singer took Rocky to meet her family in Barbados for Christmas that year, she said they weren’t planning on having a child.
“I wouldn’t describe it as planning.” “However, I’m not planning on it,” she remarked. “I have no idea when I ovulate or anything like that.” We simply had a good time. Then it was simply there on the exam. I didn’t squander any of my time. I summoned him inside and demonstrated. The next morning, I was at the doctor’s office, and our trip began.
“I always assumed marriage would come first, followed by a child, but who the f### says it has to be that way?” I’m not going to let that get in the way of being a mother.”
The 34-year-old also stated in the interview that she hasn’t slowed down her rigorous schedule because she knows her life will be different “on the other side.”
She also quipped that when she goes into labor, she would rent a party bus to be stationed outside the hospital so that her loved ones can be close by.
