Pop star Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky have welcomed their first child, according to reports. The baby boy was reportedly born on May 13 in Los Angeles. No name was given.

The couple, together since early 2020, first announced their pregnancy with a heavily photographed stroll through A$AP Rocky's home town of New York in January. The fashion mogul and Fenty beauty founder has since made headlines for her trend-setting maternity style of sheer lace, crop tops and belly-baring outfits.

The birth comes less than a month after A$AP Rocky, legal name Rakim Mayers, was arrested while returning from holiday in Barbados in connection with a previously unreported November 2021 shooting. Los Angeles police were investigating Mayers' involvement in the shooting, in which he allegedly fired several shots at an acquaintance, grazing his hand.
