Multiple Grammy-winning R&B icon Rihanna inspired many when she proudly flaunted her pregnancy glow and baby bumps while carrying both her sons.

The songstress who is mother to their two sons, RZA and Riot, shared that she hopes to create a family that "breaks the generational curses."

"You don’t have an idea," Rihanna told the outlet on December 18 at the relaunch of her Fenty x Puma collection. "You just hope, ‘I can have kids one day and I hope I can have them in love, and I hope that I can be a part of a family that breaks generational curses and moves forward and does new things and raises our kids better than we were raised and all the beautiful things.’" Well, it's finally happening for Rihanna and she is in utter disbelief. The singer also joked that the only thing she could have predicted about her kids is that one of them might inherit some of her distinctive features.

“The only thing I imagined was probably the forehead on RZA,” she remarked. “Riot doesn’t have it. I’m like, ‘Wait, are you sure he's mine?’ You can’t lose this thing!” She also revealed that after welcoming her kids with the rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, she has started to love her partner "differently." "It’s a turn-on. It’s just like, ‘Wow! What a leader, what a great, patient, loving father,’” Rihanna continued.



 

"And my kids are obsessed with him. I’m just a background character, I’m like an extra. Yep! It happens! It doesn’t matter if it’s girls or boys, they love their dad differently, and I love to see it,” she said. Before Rihanna made her comments about motherhood, Rocky had a chat with Complex where he talked about his bond with Rihanna and their kids. "I think we do a real great job at collaborating and making children," Rocky told the outlet. "I think that’s our best creation so far! Nothing is better than that out there."

“I mean, we had a third designer come and help, a ghost designer named God, you know, shaped everything. And we had these beautiful angels,” he added. “So that’s the best collaboration.” In another interview with the outlet back in December 2022, Rocky discussed the joys of being a dad for the first time. “It’s beautiful. Honestly, I think fatherhood gives me more time to do exactly what I want. I don’t have time for anything that isn’t priorities,” he said. “I love it. Everything is just based on my newfound love for being a dad and a family man. It’s lit right now. I can’t even describe it."
