Pregnant Rihanna, 35, was spotted cradling her young son during a rare outing in LA, according to the Daily Mail. The singer, who is expecting her second child with rapper A$AP Rocky, held her sleepy three-year-old boy close as they left a Los Angeles studio late at night.
Rihanna looked casual yet stylish in an oversized red puffer jacket, blue jeans and white sneakers. Her curly hair was pulled up into a messy bun. Meanwhile, her son, whose name Rihanna has kept private, rested his head on her shoulder, appearing tired after a long day.
