Rihanna Says Motherhood Is “The Bomb” After Dinner With A$AP Rocky & Their Son

Rihanna recently reflected on motherhood yet again after a dinner date with her mom, A$AP Rocky, and their son. While we still don't know his name, that hasn't made fans or the media gush about him and the family any less. Moreover, they went out to Giorgio Baldi, a popular Santa Monica spot, on Wednesday night (April 5) and seemed to have a great time. Of course, they all went out in style, with RiRi donning a Wu-Tang jersey and her New York rap boo rocking an all-black leather fit. "Motherhood is the bomb! It's the greatest," the singer remarked to a photographer outside the restaurant who asked about how her life's changed since her firstborn.

Of course, these comments all show the Barbadian star's for baby number two, whom she revealed during her Super Bowl halftime show. Her comments about how her ten-month-old son has changed her life for the better will double when his sibling is born- although, so will her motherly stress and time dedicated to her family. Regardless, from what she's spoken on, she's more than happy and ready to give and share that love.

"Motherhood Is The Bomb," Says Rihanna

"Oh, my God, it’s legendary,” she remarked to British Vogue about being a first-time mom. “It’s everything. You really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever. You literally try to remember it – and there are photos of my life before – but the feeling, the desires, the things that you enjoy, everything, you just don’t identify with it because you don’t even allow yourself mentally to get that far, because it doesn’t matter."

"We came home, cold turkey, had no one," she told the publication. "It was just us as parents and our baby. I cannot believe it. Essentially, from one person I became two. You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It’s nuts. And oh, my gosh, those first days are insane. You don’t sleep. At all. Not even if you wanted to." Regardless of that lack of sleep, check back in with HNHH for the latest news from A$AP Rocky, Rihanna, and their family.
