Rihanna's son is visibly upset that his sibling gets to go the award show with mom on Sunday night while he will be at home. The singer is pregnant with her second child and set to perform "Lift Me Up" at the 95th annual Academy awards.
She's nominated for Best Original Song, "Lift Me Up," which she used as the backdrop for the adorable video of her son. In the video, she makes it clear that he'll be staying at home while she takes his still-in-utero new sibling to the awards. How's that for checking something for the ole' newborn checklist?
Rihanna and her partner A$AP Rocky have not revealed their son's name publicly yet. We're curious to see if they picked a baby name that means miracle or maybe one that means strong. He will be 10 months old next week and has already graced two Vogue covers! In her most recent interview with Vogue UK, the singer reflects on the start of her postpartum journey:
“Oh, my God, it’s legendary,” she says of her roller-coaster first months as a mother. “It’s everything. You really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever,” she continues.
“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…” she thinks for a moment. “Because it doesn’t matter.” (Source: Vogue UK March 2023 issue).
Rihanna made headlines with one of the most famous pregnancy announcements of all time while performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in February.
One commenter on the star's hot Instagram take made a good point with, "I’d be pissed too, the other sibling got to appear as a special guest at the Super Bowl and now The OSCARS?! 🤌🤌🤌 C’moooon🙄🙄🙄.
In a recent IG post with a photo from the Vogue issue, the singer writes "How crazy both of my babies were in these photos and mommy had no clue ❤️❤️".
Being a mom of two under two is no small feat, but Rihanna seems to be excited for what's to come for her family this year.
