A$AP Rocky Opens Up About His ‘Lady’ Rihanna and Their Baby Boy: ‘You Come Home to Heaven’
Rihanna’s boyfriend A$AP Rocky has the sweetest things to say about her and their baby boy, whom the couple welcomed last May. Rocky spoke to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 this week about Rihanna playing the Super Bowl Halftime Show and life as a dad.
Rocky did not reveal anything about her show, only that she is putting her heart into it. “Oh, man,” he said when asked about it. “I’m just as excited as you guys, if not more. Yeah, I’m super excited. This is as huge. This is incredible. I’m so glad that my lady’s back making music again and whatnot, and getting back out there. It’s just incredible. Especially for both of us, it is a good year for both of us to be more active and be out there. But the Super Bowl is huge, and her being the creative she is she going to bring it, man. I’m excited. I’m more excited than everybody else, honestly.”
When asked about fatherhood, Rocky described life with Rihanna and their baby boy as “heaven.” “It’s so unexplainable. It’s just one of those things,” he said. “I’m a member of our club now, like the dad club. You see a dad, you see me. I’m playing on, I’m a full dad now. Being outside and working and being creative, it drives more energy for you…to think and soak things up like a sponge now that I’m a dad, because I have a whole ‘nother perspective. But it honestly helps you get home to your family and get home to your baby. And I can’t even explain it, man. You come home to heaven every day. I’m so thankful. God is good, man.”
Rihanna shared the first footage of their baby boy on TikTok in December. The couple has not yet publicly shared his name.
