Be careful what you post! Thanks to a misinterpreted comment, Gigi Hadid is walking back a rumour she didn’t mean to start about Rihanna’s pregnancy.
Just days after the world learned Rihanna was expecting her first child with her partner, A$AP Rocky, thanks to a stunning street style photoshoot, the Anti artist herself posted a sweet confirmation on Instagram. “How the gang pulled up to Black History Month,” Rihanna wrote on February 2, alongside a newer photo of her baby bump and some pics from the family photoshoot by Miles Diggs.
Like many of the hundreds of thousands of commenters on the post, Gigi Hadid responded to the photos with excitement and emojis. “😭🥺 three angels 💘,” the model replied to the post—and that’s where things got crazy. Underneath Hadid’s comment, which has received over 25,000 likes, fans were suddenly getting hyped over the idea that Rihanna was pregnant with twins.
It must have taken Hadid a few days to check her replies, but when she did, she felt the need to clarify. “I just caught word of this commotion ^ 😅,” she wrote. “I meant rih/rocky/baby lol.” Lol, indeed.
A source told People that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky “couldn’t be happier” about their growing family. “Having a baby is something she was never focused on, but being with Rocky opened her up to the idea. She couldn’t be happier and is so excited to be a mom,” the source said “Everything Rihanna does, she does it her own way on her own timetable, and having a baby is no different. They’re just like any other pair of parents-to-be. Yes, they happen to be famous but they’re just the cutest, giddiest young couple that’s expecting kids.”
In May 2021, the rapper described Rihanna as “the love of my life” in an interview with GQ. He also referred to the Fenty mogul as “the One” while discussing why he favors monogamy to being single. “So much better when you got the One,” he says. “[Rihanna] amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She’s the One.”
