Rihanna tearfully hugged RZA returning to Barbados and received a touching surprise gift from her parents (video)
Rihanna and her partner A$AP Rocky are enjoying some quality time with their two kids, RZA and Zara, in the singer’s home country of Barbados.
The couple, who recently announced that they are expecting their third child, flew to the Caribbean island last week to celebrate Rihanna’s 36th birthday and the upcoming birth of their baby.
The Fenty mogul and the rapper were greeted by Rihanna’s family and friends, who prepared a mouthwatering feast for them at a villa overlooking the ocean.
The menu included traditional Barbadian dishes, such as flying fish, cou-cou, macaroni pie, rice and peas, and pudding and souse.
Rihanna’s mother, Monica, also baked a chocolate cake for her daughter, while her father, Ronald, grilled some jerk chicken and ribs.
The family shared some videos and photos of their reunion on social media, showing Rihanna and A$AP Rocky smiling and laughing with their kids and relatives.
Rihanna also posted a sweet photo of A$AP Rocky holding their son RZA by the pool, captioning it “My Bajan boyz” . RZA, who turned one in May, looked adorable in a blue swimsuit and sunglasses, while his dad rocked a yellow shirt and shorts. Rihanna’s daughter Zara, who was born in December, was also seen cuddling with her mom and grandma in another picture.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been dating since 2020, after being friends for years. They confirmed their relationship in a GQ interview in August 2021, where they gushed about each other and their son. They revealed that they named their son RZA after the Wu-Tang Clan member, who is one of A$AP Rocky’s idols. They also said that they were excited to welcome their daughter Zara, who they described as a “blessing” and a “miracle”.
The couple has been very supportive of each other’s careers and endeavors. Rihanna has been busy with her Fenty empire, which includes her cosmetics, lingerie, and fashion lines. She also made history as the first black woman to head a luxury fashion house under LVMH. A$AP Rocky, on the other hand, has been working on his music and his creative agency, AWGE. He also starred in a documentary about his life and his 2019 arrest in Sweden, titled Stockholm Syndrome.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have not revealed the gender or the due date of their third child, but they have hinted that they are ready to expand their family even more. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey in February, Rihanna said that she wanted to have at least four kids, while A$AP Rocky said that he wanted to have as many as possible. They also said that they were open to adoption and surrogacy, and that they were happy with their blended family.
