Singer Rihanna has outlined her unique baby shower plans, and revealed she’s questioned whether she’s a ‘bad mum’.

The incredibly talented 34-year-old says she has some very particular stipulations about her baby celebration, as she prepares to welcome her first child with her rapper partner A$AP Rocky.

“No brunch, no blush tones. And no animal-shaped nothing,” she told Vogue. “I mean it’s lit for a lot of people—I’ve even planned a couple of baby showers like that myself—it’s just not right for me. Personally, I want a party. I want everyone to be plastered and crawling out. And it’s got to be co-ed! Don’t put me on no wicker chair somewhere with gifts at my feet where everyone is staring at me.”

She also says she won’t be holding a gender reveal party. “I asked my doctor: Is something wrong with me for not wanting this? Because people keep asking me. Am I a bad mum? When we’re ready to tell the world, we’ll just tell them.”

‘I’m not ashamed of my body’

Rihanna has had mums all over the world swooning over her impeccable pregnancy style – no maternity jeans, or maternity clothing at all, in sight.

“When I found out I was pregnant, I thought to myself, There’s no way I’m going to go shopping in no maternity aisle. I’m sorry—it’s too much fun to get dressed up,” she said. “I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing.

“My body is doing incredible things right now, and I’m not going to be ashamed of that. This time should feel celebratory. Because why should you be hiding your pregnancy?”

Rihanna And A$AP Rocky Reveal Pregnancy

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky revealed they’re expecting their first baby together in January in the sweetest way possible.

The pair took a loving stroll in New York City, with Rihanna debuting her beautiful baby pump, underneath a stunning long, pink jacket. As the snow fell in Harlem, where A$AP Rocky grew up, the couple walked along hand in hand and stopped for gentle kisses.

The 33-year-old singer looked beautiful as she smiled and held hands with her 33-year-old boyfriend, as a photographer snapped images of the loved-up pair.


The couple confirmed their relationship in November 2020, after many years of friendship. A$AP Rocky has previously said fatherhood is ‘in my destiny’ and that he would make a ‘remarkably overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.’

While Rihanna said in a 2020 interview with British Vogue that she could see herself having three or four children in the next ten years, 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,” said Rihanna. “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.”

  • It’s her party and literally her choice ????


  • Why can’t everyone else be drinking and having a good time around her if that’s what she wants?? What has this world come to.


  • At the moment I don’t see anything wrong with the baby shower she wants since she won’t be the one drinking. Hopefully this one’s not going to be an over the top way of parading the pregnancy. I’m getting a little bit sick and tired of all the hype that these so called famous people put on to celebrate their pregnancy. They’re the same as everyone else except they have more money than sense.


  • This is going to be one beautiful baby !


  • I see nothing wrong with this at all! She’s not going to be drinking, so no, not a bad mum! She wants her friends to have a great time.
    She’s also being true to herself with her style. I thing says you need to wear maternity clothes. Fuzzy baby showers and maternity clothes aren’t what make you a mum, let alone a good one!
    And as for gender reveal, it’s a personal choice. We wait until the baby is born to find out the gender, ourselves. No big deal


  • I honestly adore her haha. She’s going to be a fun mum!


  • It doesn’t seem very responsible.


  • Good on her for wanting to be her own true self and not conforming to what should be


  • If she’s comfortable, she can wear what ever she likes.


  • Staying true to herself!


  • Good on her for staying true to who she is and not being influenced by others.


  • She sure has her own style and a beautiful belly :)

    • And to be honest, I never wore maternity clothes :)


  • Ugh I love her! Do what makes you happy RiRi!!


  • It is an exciting time for mums and you should behave the way you want. Do hope all is well in the end.


  • I didn’t even know she was pregnant haha
