A$AP Rocky is a supportive IG BF.
The world (or at least America) watched in awe as Rihanna performed live for the first time in years at Sunday night’s Super Bowl halftime show. But no one was more supportive of Rihanna than her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, who was well-equipped with a working phone to document the whole thing, as if no one else was doing that with perhaps better gear. During the performance, she sang and (barely) danced to some of her hits over the past two decades, including “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “Rude Boy,” “Umbrella,” and “Diamonds.” Unfortunately for me, she left out “Disturbia,” which I will get over one day.
The NFL shared a video of A$AP’s devotion to Twitter. “ASAP Rocky is everyone watching @Rihanna #AppleMusicHalftime,” the post reads. In the video, Rocky—who is wearing an on-theme leather bomber jacket in an American flag pattern paired with oversized khaki pants—looks so proud of his longtime friend and now partner.
Rihanna and Rocky welcomed their first child, a baby boy in May 2022. The pregnancy was first revealed at the end of January 2022, when the pop-star-slash-billionaire and the rapper were photographed together in New York City. Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance on Sunday night was a return to the stage, but also a pregnancy announcement: Her monochrome red outfit emphasized her pregnant belly.
Following the performance, reps for Rihanna confirmed that she is, in fact, pregnant and expecting her second child with A$AP Rocky. Instead of a new album this year, we’ll probably just get more iconic Rihanna maternity style. We’ll take what we can get.
