PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: Baby’s first fashion week! Pregnant Rihanna cradles her son, nine months, as doting mother lands in Milan with partner ASAP Rocky
Rihanna had some very special company as she arrived in Milan on Thursday, little more than a week after confirming her second pregnancy.
The singer and actress was joined by her baby son, who at nine-months of age was travelling to Italy for his first ever fashion week – a run of ready-to-wear womenswear shows that began on Wednesday.
Making her way across the city’s Malpensa Airport, Rihanna, 35, cradled her young son as she searched for her car.
The singer, who is expected to release new music this year, was also accompanied by boyfriend ASAP Rocky, with the couple expected to attend a string of shows over the coming days.
Dressed in an ankle-length coat and black hooded top, Rihanna appeared to be braced for chilly fourteen degree temperatures in the Italian fashion capital.

This will be the second child for the mogul and her boyfriend. The couple have been in a relationship since 2020.
Speaking to the magazine, Rihanna said Rocky is her ‘best friend’ and admitted she can’t remember what her life was like before having her son in May 2022.
She said of becoming a mother: ‘It’s everything, you really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever.’

Rihanna said her first few months as a mother were a rollercoaster and described giving birth as a ‘head-f**k’, saying she couldn’t believe she entered the hospital pregnant and left with a baby.
Rihanna admitted that having a child has also made her reevaluate as she described raising her son as one of the ‘scariest’ responsibilities ever in her life.
She said: ‘Raising a young Black man is one of the scariest responsibilities in life […] ‘You’re like, ‘What am I leaving my kids to? This is the planet they’re gonna be living on?’
‘Everything changes when you have a baby but I wouldn’t say it’s done anything but made us closer,’ she added.
