Rihanna revealed her pregnancy in the May issue of Vogue US, while posing for a series of breathtaking images for the US fashion magazine.
The singer-turned-billionaire entrepreneur made her pregnancy public in January when she was spotted out and about in New York with her partner A$AP Rocky.
The 34-year-old actress did not confirm her pregnancy at the time, but she has now spoken at length to Vogue about being a first-time mother — and it doesn’t seem like we’ll be seeing her in maternity dungarees anytime soon.
“When I found out I was pregnant, I told myself there was no way I was going to go shopping in a maternity aisle,” she told the magazine.
“I’m sorry, but getting dressed up is too much fun.” I’m not going to let that portion of my body go away because my body is changing.”
“I’m hopeful that we were able to redefine what’s deemed ‘appropriate’ for pregnant ladies,” she added.
“Right now, my body is doing wonderful things, and I’m not going to be embarrassed of it.” This should be a happy time. “After all, why should you keep your pregnancy a secret?”
The singer also said that her pregnancy with her rapper partner was not planned, but they were not “against” it either.
“I don’t know when I ovulate or anything like that,” she stated.
“We just had a good time.” Then it was just there on the exam. I didn’t squander any time. I summoned him inside and demonstrated. The next morning, I was at the doctor’s office, and our journey started.”
“I always assumed it would be marriage first, then a baby,” she said, “but who the fuck says it has to be that way?”
“I’m not going to let it stop me from being a mother.”
