A$AP Rocky and Rihanna have given fans the first glimpses of their son, sharing photos and video of the seven-month-old whose name the couple has yet to reveal.
On Saturday morning (December 17), Rihanna posted the first video fans have seen of her baby boy to her TikTok page. The clip sees the baby smiling, laughing and cooing as he reaches for his mother’s phone
Confirming the video’s authenticity, RiRi can be heard talking to her baby as he sits in his car seat. “Oooh,” she says, reacting to the infant smiling. “You trying to get mommy phone? Oh wow!”

Hollywood Unlocked has also obtained three exclusive photos of the baby, with A$AP Rocky hiding his face behind his son in two of the snaps, and one shot of the little boy alone.
One pic appears to have been taken in a nursery, with Rocky holding his little boy as he’s dressed in no more than a diaper and a burping cloth over his head. The other father-and-son shot was seemingly captured while the family was out and about. In it, baby wears leather shorts and a fuzzy sweater while being held by his dad’s bejeweled hands
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky welcomed their first born on May 13, less than four months after announcing they were expecting in a stunning bump reveal photo shoot for People Magazine.
While the couple has kept their son out of the public eye until now, they have made quite a few high-profile appearances of their own, both for work and for fun.
After news of Ri’s upcoming Super Bowl LVII Half Time performance broke in September, she and Rocky were spotted entering a New York studio, sparking rumors that she finally had new music on the way. The two were again spotted at the Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever premiere in Los Angeles, just days after Rihanna actually did unveil new music for the movie’s soundtrack.
RiRi was also photo’d supporting A$AP Rocky as he performed across the US and abroad throughout the fall and summer; and the pair were among the first to watch Will Smith‘s latest movie, Emancipation, during a star-studded intimate home screening of the film.?
Last month, Rihanna shared how much she’s enjoying raising her “happy baby” during a red carpet interview ahead of the Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 fashion show.
“Oh my god, the mornings, like, seeing his morning face!,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “Seeing a baby with, like, little bags and waking up and they’re just, like, startled. They’re trying to figure out where they’re at. It’s the cutest, it’s my favorite part of the day. He’s amazing, he’s a happy baby.”
The beauty and fashion mogul also revealed that, while she’s definitely started creating music again — including freestyling songs for her little boy — motherhood has also jumped started her creativity elsewhere.
“You know, I always thought doing kid stuff would be cliché and the obvious thing to do when you have a baby. It’s, like, the obvious next step,” she revealed. “But when I went shopping, that’s when I realized like, OK, maybe I need to start making the stuff that I want my kids to wear because it’s hard! I got my own ideas.”
Earlier this month, A$AP Rocky announced the name of his long-awaited fourth studio album while sharing another preview of the project while appearing on 2 Chainz’s Amazon Music Live concert series on December 8, where he delivered his first performance since his curtailed set at Rolling Loud New York in September.
In addition to running through fan favorites like “Praise the Lord,” “L$D” and “Yamborghini High,” Pretty Flacko debuted a string of unreleased songs during the Los Angeles concert, including one titled “Same Problems” which is dedicated to the growing number of rappers who’ve lost their lives too young
Prior to the concert, which followed Amazon Prime’s coverage of the Los Angeles Rams’ 17-16 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders, Rocky gave fans an update on his long-awaited new album, revealing the project is “finished.”
He also appeared to announce the album title — Don’t Be Dumb — which was projected on stage and referenced throughout the broadcast. A$AP Rocky has not yet revealed when the album will arrive.
