Rihanna blessed her navy with a rare glimpse of her 9-month-old son.
The “Diamonds” singer, who is expecting her second child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky, took to Instagram on Sunday to share a tear-eyed photo of her baby boy.
“my son when he found out his brother was going to the Oscars and he wasn’t,” joked Rihanna, who is due to perform her Oscar-nominated song “Lift Me Up” at the March 12 ceremony.
The pregnant superstar then told her 145 million followers to scroll through her carousel post to see a throwback clip of her “fat man” looking adoringly at the music video for her track from the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” soundtrack.
Rihanna, 35, and the “L$D” rapper, 34, have yet to reveal their son’s name.
“MR.MAYERS ❤️,” Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, gushed in the comments section.
Several famous friends of Rihanna also flooded her message.

“I can’t wait mommmmmyyyy,” Gigi Hadid added.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced last month that Rihanna would sing “Lift Me Up” on Hollywood’s Biggest Night this year.
The tune is up for Best Original Song and marks Rihanna’s first Oscar nomination. She co-wrote it as a tribute to “Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman, who died of colon cancer in August 2020 at the age of 43.
News of the Fenty Beauty founder’s Oscar performance came shortly after she headlined the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show, in which she debuted her baby bump .
Page Six exclusively reported at the time that Rocky looked “happy” and “grateful” at an afterparty following the revelation of Rihanna’s pregnancy.
Rihanna recently opened up about motherhood while posing for the March 2023 cover of British Vogue with her partner and their son.
“I’m literally the girl trying to get into the boys’ club, waiting for my turn,” she told the magazine. “He is obsessed with his father. And I’m like, ‘I didn’t give birth to you? What is going on?'”
Rihanna added that her son and his father have an “undeniable” connection.
“The second Rocky makes eye contact with him, he’s on fire,” she shared. “Everything they say about sons and mothers is a myth. Sons and fathers are crazy.
Rihanna and Rocky announced they were expecting their first child in January 2022 as they strolled together in her native Harlem with her baby bump on display. They welcomed their son in May.
Although Rihanna has known Rocky for years, they only started dating at the end of 2020. In May 2021, he called her “the love of (his) life”.
The “Umbrella” singer dated Chris Brown, Drake and fellow billionaire Hassan Jameel.
