Rihanna is now a mother of two as the 'Umbrella' hitmaker has welcomed her second child with A$AP Rocky.

The Fenty Beauty owner gave birth to a baby boy earlier this month. Per TMZ, sources revealed that the little one was born on August 3 in Los Angeles.

The name of the youngster has not yet been made public, though sources did reveal that it starts with an "R".

Rihanna and Rocky welcomed their eldest son on May 13 last year, naming their firstborn RZA Athelston Mayers in a nod to the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan. His name was only released in May this year - 11 months after his birth. This recent news means little RZA is now an older brother.

The 35-year-old pop princess - who initially announced her pregnancy during her Halftime Show at this year's Super Bowl back in February - has kept her romance with the 'Praise the Lord' rapper relatively private. But Rihanna did treat fans to a sweet video of herself and her son in April.

"Look who don't want mommy to workout," she captioned the cute clip, which she posted to Twitter.

Check out the sweet video:

In a March 2022 interview with Elle magazine, the Fenty Beauty founder opened up about her future life as a protective mom. The artist said that, as a fan of The Real Housewives franchise, she thinks her parenting style will be similar to that of Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice - a New Jersey no-filter-type mom with Italian heritage.

"Teresa from Jersey does not play about her kids. She will flatten you about those kids. And that resonates with me a lot because I feel like that's the type of mom I'm going to be," Rihanna told the outlet. "Psycho about it." The singer then joked that she'd probably be "worse" than Giudice, adding: "You talk about my kids, it's over."

Then, in February this year, the 'Wild Thoughts' singer told British Vogue that being a mother is "legendary," revealing to the outlet: "It's everything. You really don't remember life before, that's the craziest thing ever. You literally try to remember it - and there are photos of my life before - but the feeling, the desires, the things that you enjoy, everything, you just don't identify with it because you don't even allow yourself mentally to get that far, because…Because it doesn't matter."

She also added how surreal it felt to head into hospital with Rocky as a couple, and then leave as a family of three. "Essentially, from one person I became two. You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It's nuts," she admitted. "And oh, my gosh, those first days are insane. You don't sleep. At all. Not even if you wanted to. We came home, cold turkey, had no one. It was just us as parents and our baby. Man, you're a zombie for the most part."

Clearly, both Rihanna and Rocky are devoted parents, and it's lovely to see that their family is expanding! Congrats to the happy family!
