Will Rihanna and A$AP Rocky move to Barbados to raise their first child? Fans worried by rumors
Paparazzi in Hollywood could potentially have a harder time bringing in fresh Rihanna and A$AP Rocky photos. According to a source, the couple has decided to move to Barbados to raise their newborn. Apparently, the singer, 34, is set to stay in Los Angeles for three months before going to her native Caribbean island with her infant and his rapper father, ASAP Rocky, 33.
Rihanna and Rocky, who have been dating since 2021, reportedly welcomed their first child on May 19 in Los Angeles. Many outlets have claimed the newborn to be a boy, although the couple has yet to officially verify this. A source told the Sunday Mirror: “ Rihanna loves Barbados and she loved growing up there." The source added, “She wants to give her baby the same experience she had – away from the world of show business [...] Both her and ASAP’s family are in Barbados, so the couple are planning to move there in a few months’ time.”

It has also been reported that Rihanna has already decided which school the toddler would attend when he's old enough. The name of the young man has yet to be revealed by the 'What's My Name' singer. However, thanks to his mother's massive £1.7 billion inheritance, which dwarfs his father's £7.5 million, it's safe to say the child will be well-provided.
Rihanna grew up in a bungalow in Barbados' capital, Bridgetown. While Rocky was born in the Harlem section of Manhattan, New York City, his father hails from Barbados, and the Caribbean island does hold a special place in his heart.
On Friday, May 20, images of what was claimed to be Rihanna's first public appearance since giving birth appeared online. She was photographed leaving her West Hollywood house wearing an enormous grey sweater and loose black trousers, according to TMZ. Rihanna has, however, denied that the photographs are recent. "This was weeks ago Lolol," she said alongside a re-post of the photograph on Instagram.
Speculations about the couple moving back to the Caribbeans sparked varied reactions on Twitter. One user wrote, “Rihanna is moving back to Barbados to raise her son, big news for Barbados; directly and indirectly.” Another said, “So Rihanna and the baby and ASAP are moving back home … I know that’s right .. back to Barbados.”
Meanwhile, some wondered if the rumored move could spell doom to the icon's music career. "Rihanna basically finna abandon us, to raise her baby in Barbados," a tweet read. Another chimed in, "Rihanna deciding to raise Baby Fenty in Barbados convinces me that R9 is never coming. Have fun streaming and buying the old shit."
