Rihanna doesn't play when it comes to her son.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are on pace to welcome baby #2 but only this week have they given fans a real glimpse at their firstborn. The couple welcomed their first child in May 2022, though they tried to keep the news under wraps. Rih and Rocky only confirmed the news days later. As should be expected, the paparazzi have been all over the couple trying to get the first glimpse of their son. Finally, Rihanna handled the big reveal through the launch of a TikTok page before the paps had a chance to ruin the moment.

Still, Rihanna and Rocky have been quite protective of their newborn as a celebrity couple. During a recent interview with British Vogue, Rihanna explained that she never wanted to introduce her son to the world through the tabloids. “We get to decide as parents when and how we do that. End of story,” she wrote. “We’ve been protecting him thus far and you don’t have any consent to be posting photos or selling photos of my child, a minor. Get the hell out of here with that.”

Rihanna Faces Backlash For Calling Her Son “Fine”

The cover story included photos of Rihanna, her son, and A$AP Rocky as a family, and it certainly had people talking. Some of the photos showed Rocky holding the baby as Rihanna held his hand and walked in front of him. Then, she shared a photo of herself leaning next to her son on a bed. “My son so fine! Idc idc idc!” she captioned the photo, which many fans felt was an odd way to describe her son.

As expected the criticism piled on in her comment section. Plenty of people criticized her for calling her son “fine, including one commenter, who asked, “Who calls a baby fine?” to which Rihanna responded, “his mother!” However, the best clap back came after a fan stated that her son “is not a grown man.” Rihanna shut them down completely, writing, “you just keep you lil cougar paws away from him and we good!” Rihanna isn’t playing any games when it comes to her son.
