When it comes to celebrity couples, especially in recent times, it doesn’t get much better than Rihanna and A$AP Rocky.

Ever since they collaborated together a decade ago on A$AP Rocky’s 2013 video for Fashion Killa, and also on the remix of Rihanna’s 2012 hit Cockiness (I Love It) – the idea of them as a couple simply made sense.

Not only are they talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show-stopping, spectacular – okay we’ll stop – but they’re oh so very stunning together.

Not to mention, their chemistry is unmatched.

So it’s safe to say we’ve been waiting a very long time for these two to couple up, and it’s finally happened – much to everyone’s delight.

While Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been friends for years, rumours of a romance between the two didn’t become prevalent until 2020.

It was during Rihanna’s Fenty Skin campaign, where she enlisted the help of A$AP Rocky, that their chemistry really came through during a couple of videos for Vogue and GQ.

During their GQ video, A$AP Rocky even admitted that the “hardest part” of working with Rihanna was how much fun they had together.

“I think the hardest part about working with you is not goofin’ off and laughing the whole time. Like this sh*t is comedy,” he said.

“That’s the hardest part. You know, people be so cool it’s hard not to, not to laugh. That’s all. But it was fun. The hardest part is not having too much fun. You just forget that it’s still work at the end of the day.”

If that wasn’t sweet enough, the rapper really amped up the praise for Rih in an interview with GQ last year in May, where he couldn’t help but gush over her.

At the beginning of the interview, A$AP Rocky called the singer “the love of my life” and referred to her as “my lady”.

“She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones,” Rocky said, “I think when you know, you know. She’s The One.”

Those words alone were enough confirmation that the two were an item, and they’ve since gone on to appear on multiple red carpets together.

Their most recent appearance was at the Met Gala last year, where Rihanna arrived at the 2021 event with A$AP Rocky in a matching ensemble – and they were every bit the cosy couple.

While the couple has tried to keep their romance relatively low-key, Rihanna sparked headlines when she confirmed that she’s expecting her first child with A$AP Rocky.

The singer showed off her baby bump while she was photographed out in New York City with A$AP Rocky, and they couldn’t look happier together.

In one of the sweet photos, the rapper has his arm around Rihanna and is kissing her forehead as they enjoy a walk outside in the snow.

With a long pink jacket unbuttoned at the bottom, her growing bump was on full display and covered in jewels – just about the most stylish baby announcement.

Rihanna has previously spoken about wanting to become a mother in a 2020 interview with British Vogue, where she was asked where she sees herself in 10 years.

“Ten years? I’ll be 42! I’ll be ancient. I’ll have kids—three or four of ’em,” she said at the time

A$AP Rocky has also spoken about the possibility of parenthood in his GQ interview.

“If that’s in my destiny, absolutely,” he said, before adding: “I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.”
