Rihanna has shared a new image of her baby bump on social media, personally introducing her 'gang' of three.

The singer and Fenty Beauty cosmetics queen posted a series of photos on her Instagram account, the first of her holding up her oversized top, with orange gloves on, revealing the bump from the side.

The 33-year-old captioned the post, "how the gang pulled up to black history month." In the United States, black history month begins on 1 February.

Also among her snaps are those shared earlier this week of her and her partner A$AP Rocky, walking together in New York, with the bump also on show.

The second shot features the pair embracing, with Rihanna in a bright pink long puffer coat, opened at the stomach, while the second focuses mainly on the bump, with jewels draped over it, and the third is a solo shot of RiRi looking straight at the camera.

The images taken of the pair walking outside were shot by celebrity photographer Miles Diggs, aka @diggzy.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, singer/producer, reportedly started dating in 2020, only appearing in public together a few times.

In September, they memorably made their red carpet debut at the Met Gala, where they rocked duvet-like (but very high fashion) co-ordinated outfits.

Rihanna wore a large, black, puffer coat dress with a matching black hat, while A$AP Rocky wore a colourful multi-coloured blanket, with a suit underneath.

Speaking to British Vogue in March 2020, Rihanna revealed her desire for children. When asked where she sees herself in 10 years time, included in her answer was "I'll have kids – three or four of 'em."

And when asked if she would do it on her own, if she hadn't met the right person, she said, "Hell, yeah. 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 added, "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."

There's no doubt Rihanna has all the love she needs to welcome her future child, with the bonus addition of doing it with her boyfriend.
