New Rihanna pregnancy photos almost always guarantee her baby bump will be on full display. In a new photo carousel posted to Instagram, the singer treated us to new photos of her bump, this time sharing a collection of images from a never-bef0re-seen nearly-nude maternity shoot.
Feeling nostalgic as she gears up to welcome baby number two, Rihanna gave fans a glimpse into her motherhood journey during her first pregnancy with her son RZA, whom she shares with ASAP Rocky, with seven steamy photos that could serve as a Savage x Fenty or Fenty Beauty campaign. “Here’s a little series I call ‘Rub on ya titties,’” the caption read. The photos find Rihanna perched on a sunny balcony, glistening from head to toe (Fenty Beauty Body Sauce?) with a custom-made Jacquie Aiche bra adorning her upper body. On the lower half, she’s wearing nothing but a string bikini bottom and white pointed heels.
“In honor of my first pregnancy, embracing motherhood like a g, and the magic that this body made! Baby RZA… he in there not having a clue how nuts his mama is, or how obsessed he was bout to make me,” she wrote. She closed out the post with hashtags like #maternityshoot2022 and #tobecontinued, which could mean a new maternity shoot for baby number two may be on the way.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky recently celebrated RZA’s first birthday and gave us a look into his first year with a carousel of photos posted by Rocky. “WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY TO MY 1st BORN . RZA,” the rapper captioned the photo set. While walking the red carpet for this year’s Met Gala, Rihanna told Entertainment Tonight that this current pregnancy is nothing like the one she experienced with RZA.

“It’s so different from the first one,” she told the interviewer, adding that she has “no cravings” and “tons of nausea.”
“Everything’s different, but I’m enjoying it, I’m enjoying it. I feel good. I feel energetic,” she added. Rihanna began to gush over RZA, saying, “I’m in love. I’m obsessed and I don’t even feel guilty about it.”
