Rihanna Admits That She’ll Be “Psycho” And “Will Not Play” When Protecting Her Child

"You talk about my kids, it's over."

It’s only been two months since the world learned about Rihanna’s pregnancy with A$AP Rocky. 

But in that small period of time, fans and pop culture savants alike have been keeping an eagle eye on the musician for any new information about her bundle of joy.

And while we’re unclear of a due date or a gender, the Fenty Beauty mogul has shared some intel into her pregnancy journey, how she’s felt about it and how she plans to raise her first child.

In several interviews, Rihanna has spoken in more detail about how far along she is in her pregnancy, leaving many to speculate when we can expect to see a birth announcement. And after revealing her pregnancy with a professional photoshoot in New York City, fans are expecting nothing less than extravagance from RiRi.

Below, everything we know about when Rihanna is expecting to welcome her first child, including which trimester she is currently in.

Which trimester is Rihanna’s pregnancy in?

The musician and beauty mogul has opened up about how she copes with being in her third trimester—yes, she’s already at the finish line—as well as how she plans to protect her child as they grow up in the public eye.

In an interview with ELLE, Rihanna credited her pregnancy glow on both the nature of her circumstance and her products for her radiance. But when discussing her third trimester, she opened up about how difficult she finds it.

“They go hand in hand. There’s a pregnancy glow. There’s also those days, girl,” she said.

“Especially in the third trimester where you wake up and you’re like, oh, do I have to get dressed? Makeup for sure helps you feel like a real person. […] Everything is a challenge, from getting dressed and how you’re going to do your makeup. But I like challenges.”

Now that fans know RiRi is in her third trimester, this likely puts her pregnancy around the seven or eighth month mark which could mean that her due date will land sometime in April or May 2022. Sources previously claimed the same information back in February to Us Weekly, when they claimed that the singer is due in the spring.

How does Rihanna want to raise her child?

The beauty mogul even opened up about her love for the Real Housewives franchise, and which housewife’s parenting tactics she plans to adopt for her own child. But who does RiRi look up to in the reality TV show ? Heather Dubrow, from Orange County , and Teresa Guidice from New Jersey, of course.

“Heather Dubrow is so chic while being a mum. Just love the way that she just allows her kids to be who they are,” the musician revealed.

“And that’s really inspiring to me. But Teresa [Giudice] from Jersey does not play about her kids,” she said.

“She will flatten you about those kids. And that resonates with me a lot because I feel like that’s the type of mom I’m going to be. Psycho about it,” Rihanna continued, adding, “You talk about my kids, it’s over.”
