Rihanna is pregnant with her first child! The 33-year-old singer is expecting her first child with rapper A$AP Rocky.

Over the weekend, Rihanna showed off her bare baby bump in a pink coat and jeans while she held hands with her 33-year-old beau. The couple was in A$AP's hometown of Harlem in New York City.

A source tells ET that the couple is feeling very blessed that they're having a baby together, and that they already considered themselves a family but having a baby together makes that bond even stronger. 

"They enjoyed keeping the pregnancy a secret for as long as they could, but they're thrilled to be able to share the news with their fans," the source says.

According to another source, Rihanna and A$AP wanted to shoot their pregnancy announcement in Harlem because that's where A$AP grew up and it's a place that brings them both a lot of comfort. "They feel really at home in Harlem," the source says. "His upbringing in Harlem shaped so much of who he is -- and it hasn't always been easy. This was a happy milestone and it felt right to shoot the photos where it all started."

The source notes that the photos were taken early Friday morning, and Rihanna is wearing vintage Chanel. "They are such night owls, but they wanted to shoot these pics discreetly," adds the source. "It was important for Rihanna to make this announcement on her terms. She couldn't really hide it any longer!"

After the baby news broke, a few celebs took to social media to express their excitement.

Nicki Minaj posted pics from their maternity photo shoot along with heart-eyed and prayer emojis, and the message, "Congrats RIH!!!!"

Meanwhile, Cardi B posted, "OMG!!!! Congrats @BadGalRiRi"

Khloe Kardashian wrote, "This makes me so happy."

"Holy slay," Bella Hadid posted. "Congrats to the Holy Duo!!"

Rihanna has made it no secret that she wants to be a mother. In March 2020, she told British Vogue that she wanted three or four kids by the time she was 42 -- with or without a partner.

"I feel like society makes me want to feel like, 'Oh, you got it wrong…' They diminish you as a mother if there's not a dad in your kids' lives," she told the magazine. "But the only thing that matters is happiness, that's the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That's the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love."

In her 2018 Vogue interview, she talked about what type of parent she would be.

"I'm not gonna be able to take my eyes off my kid," she said. "I know that already about myself. They're going to have to force me to hire a nanny."

Rihanna and A$AP have been dating since 2020, and in May, A$AP called Rihanna the love of his life in an interview with GQ.

"Relationships are] so much better when you got the One," he told the magazine. "She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones."

"I think when you know, you know. She's the One," he added.

Last July, a source also told ET that the two are "madly in love."

"They barely leave each other's side... A$AP is so grateful for Rihanna," the source said. "She's his biggest cheerleader and he doesn't take her for granted."

Clearly, the two are still going strong. A source told ET in January that Rihanna and A$AP's relationship was in "a good place" as they were spotted out on fashionable date nights in New York City.

"After a very busy fall with professional commitments, they took some time to relax and unwind and really reconnect with each other," the source said.

An eyewitness during their recent date at Pastis restaurant in New York City told ET that they "didn't take their eyes off each other" and that A$AP was attentive to Rihanna.

"They are so sweet and affectionate," the eyewitness said. "There were a lot of fans outside trying to catch a glimpse of them, and he was super protective of her and made sure she could get through the crowd safely."
