The singer, 33, has been snapped showcasing her blossoming bump during a stroll in New York City, alongside her rapper beau, also 33, in pictures obtained by People magazine.
Rihanna wowed in a fuchsia pink jacket paired with light blue jeans and numerous pieces of jewellery as she showed off her baby bump.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were close pals for nearly a decade before their relationship turned romantic.
The pair were first linked in 2013, when A$AP supported Rihanna on her Diamonds World Tour for all of the US dates.
She went on to star in his music video for hit song Fashion Killa later that same year, and romance rumours were rife after they put on a steamy display in the footage.
However, A$AP was in a relationship with model Chanel Iman at the time, leaving the rumours to be quickly squashed.

The pair continued to enjoy a close friendship, but in 2018 speculation of a romance resurfaced when Rihanna was snapped looking cosy with the rapper at the Louis Vuitton show during Paris Fashion Week.
In 2019, Rihanna was spotted attending one of A$AP’s shows in Sweden, but with the singer being in a long-term relationship with Hassan Jameel at the time, romance rumours were once again quickly shut down.
At the beginning of 2020, the songstress confirmed she and Hassan had parted ways and not long after, she and American rapper A$AP were seen attending a concert together in New York.
Shortly after the sighting, a source told Us Weekly: “They’re having fun and have always had chemistry,” before claiming they were “hanging out and hooking up.”
Later on that same year, A$AP starred in a campaign for Rihanna’s wildly popular Fenty Beauty skincare collection.
The rapper then interviewed Rihanna for Vogue, and the pair looked loved-up as they joked around together in footage taken during the interview.
By the end of 2020, the couple had been spotted on various occasions looking smitten with one another, and they were then seen enjoying a holiday to Barbados together.
Photos taken during the holiday of Rihanna and A$AP sharing a kiss appeared to officially confirm their relationship.
A$AP finally confirmed the romance in 2021, when he gushed over the singer during an interview with GQ.
When probed about his relationship with Rihanna, he said: “The love of my life,” before calling her: “My lady.”
A$AP told the same publication: “So much better when you got the One. She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones.
“I think when you know, you know. She’s the One.”
In September, the couple made their highly anticipated red carpet debut when they appeared at The 2021 Met Gala together, looking as loved-up as ever.
Despite both being huge stars, they’ve managed to keep their relationship largely out of the spotlight.
Rihanna and A$AP have now confirmed they are set to welcome their first child together, having been snapped walking together in New York with the singer showing off her blossoming bump.
