Rihanna recently opened up to Vogue about her excitement, and musings, around motherhood. “They’re going to teach me more than I could ever teach them,” she said of her future child. “And I want them to go for it. I want to see who they are in the world, who they become,” she continued. “Because I’m just here to keep them on the rails—a passenger as much as the driver.”
During her pregnancy, Rihanna redefined what it meant to be expecting in the public eye.she debuted her baby bump in Harlem with a series of images shot by celebrity photographer Miles Diggs, she’s routinely worn unabashed, fashion-forward outfits in front of the camera, culminating in her May 2022 Vogue cover where she posed in a sheer red Alaïa bodysuit for Annie Leibovitz. She explained her decision to challenge how, exactly, society views pregnancy style: “My body is doing incredible things right now, and I’m not going to be ashamed of that. This time should feel celebratory. Because why should you be hiding your pregnancy?” she told Vogue’s Chioma Nnadi.
