Rihanna became the 11th person ever to be named a National Hero in Barbados this week, but all folks on social media cared about is if she was pregnant.
For the ceremony, the “Work” singer wore a $2,700 Bottega Veneta orange dress that many believed showed a slight belly bulge. Twitter user @BenjaminEnfield even shared a tweet reading, “Rihanna is pregnant with her first child with A$AP Rocky” with a photo of the couple … and folks ran with the unsubstantiated report like it was gospel.
Am I late… is RiRi #pregnant as I’m sure I can see a blooming bump!

It’s not the first time rumors have circulated that Rih was with child. This time however she decided to set the record straight when a nosey fan DM’d her about it.
“Jen” wrote to Rihanna, “Can I come to the baby shower sis!? True or not your babies are going to be beautiful. Sorry everyone’s up in your uterus right now.”
The Bajan beauty responded, “Haaaaa! Stawwwp! You ain’t came to the first 10 baby showers! Y’all breed me every year dammit lol.”

Rihanna discussed her future plans for motherhood in a 2020 British Vogue interview saying she’d be ready to settle down in ten years.
As for now she seems to be enjoying her relationship with boyfriend rapper A$AP Rocky and isn’t thinking about babies.
We honestly hope the next thing she delivers is a new album. But that’s just us.
