It comes just months after the world saw RiRi and Rocky's son for the first time ever.

16, 2022, Rihanna gives a glimpse of their tyke for the first time. In a video she captioned "hacked," she tells her son, "You tryna get Mommy's phone?"

The couple welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on May 13, 2022, in Los Angeles, TMZreported at the time. The baby's name still has not been revealed publicly.

The "Diamonds" singer has opened up in the past about motherhood being a dream of hers. "A lot of woman get very defensive because it's personal. It's our bodies, and of course it's our time, and it's not necessarily everyone's dream to be a mom, but it is mine," she told Extra in 2019.

Earlier that year, in a sitdown for Interview, Rihanna admitted to her Ocean's 8 co-star  Sarah  Paulson that she wanted to be a mother "more than anything in life."
