Rihanna covers British Vogue with A$AP Rocky and son

Only a few days after her megawatt Super Bowl performance (during which she disclosed she’s expectant again), Rihanna and her family — spouse A$AP Rocky and the couple’s completely adorable bouncing baby boy, whose name has yet to be disclosed — appear on the March 2023 cover of
British Vogue. The magazine revealed the cover shot by Inez & Vinoodh, as well as the accompanying editorial and interview with Giles Hattersley on Wednesday, February 15.


In her interrogation with the magazine, Rihanna talks about maternity, her newfound enthusiasm and new music. The crooner and beauty mogul does not, however, disclose her baby boy’s name: “Rihanna, Rocky, their families and teams are so consistent in calling him ‘baby’ in my presence I do half wonder if his name might actually be Baby,” writes Hattersley in an aside.

The pair has kept their family life mostly personal since they welcomed their baby boy in May of last year, save for Rihanna’s first-ever TikTok post that was also a reveal of the then six-month-old. But as far as public appearances go, landing a British Vogue cover before even celebrating your first birthday is pretty damn iconic — and we’d expect nothing less from Rihanna’s progeny.


The photoshoot was styled by Edward Enninful, along with Matthew Henson (who is delightfully credited as “A$AP Rocky and baby’s stylist”), with hair by Rihanna’s go-to stylist Yusef, makeup by Kanako Takase and nails by Kimmie Kyees. For the cover shot, she wears a black Chanel gown with a high slit and goes barefoot on the beach, while a Chrome Hearts leather-clad Rocky holds her hand and the smiley baby.

The Fenty brand owner also, of course, offers up a series of gems in the interview, including insights on getting dressed while pregnant (and after): “Dressing for pregnancy was such a piece of cake… But dressing in postpartum, what the f**k do you do? The week that I came home from the hospital – that was nothing but sweats and hoodies. But the weeks after that, you don’t know what to put on.

She showed off her growing baby bump for the first time at the 2023 Super Bowl.

Everything is too small or too big.” The ‘Work’ hitmaker also proceeded to discuss her backing of Colin Kaepernick and what went into her
intention to take part in the Super Bowl this year. She also (kind of) reveals that she had been approached to headline the Super Bowl halftime show every year for the past decade or so, but had always turned them down in the past.
