Famous singer Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky have welcomed their first baby, a bouncing boy, in Los Angeles, according to the industry news site TMZ.

There is no news on a baby name just yet, but TMZ says the little boy was delivered on 13 May 2022.  

While we're so happy for the couple, this also means an end to the impressive range of maternity outfits that Rihanna put on display throughout the five or so months that she was publicly pregnant. 

As the couple gets to know their newborn baby, we look back over the last nine months of eye-catching maternity looks the fashion mogul served us.

The Superstar behind the hits Diamonds and Umbrella hopes that she could redefine what is considered decent for pregnant women.

"I am hoping that we were able to redefine what's considered decent for pregnant women. My body is doing incredible things right now, and I am not going to be ashamed of that," Rihanna says in the Vogue April issue.

She added that pregnancy should be celebrated, rather than hidden, which is precisely what the Hollywood star proudly did throughout her pregnancy.

"This time should feel celebratory. Because why should you be hiding your pregnancy?," she told the magazine.

What do you think? Too much for a pregnant mother-to-be, or just perfect for a woman who is proud of herself?
