While the release date of the illustrious R9 remains unknown, we can tell you there's a different kind of Rihanna delivery on its way in 2022 … 

According to People, Rihanna and boyfriend A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child together in the coming year. Over the weekend, the powerhouse couple was spotted hand-in-hand walking through New York City in photographs obtained by the publication. Riri wore an oversized pink coat with nothing underneath, leaving the bottom half unbuttoned to show off her growing bump. She paired the statement coat with baggy light-wash denim, super long necklaces, and a chain belt.

The musicians began dating in 2020 following the Fenty Beauty founder's split from longtime boyfriend Hassan Jameel.

In March of 2020 the businesswoman told British Vogue that she planned to have "three or four" kids within the next 10 years, with or without a partner. "The only thing that matters is happiness, that's the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child," she told the magazine. "That's the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love."

A$AP Rocky spoke about prospective parenthood in a 2021 interview with GQ. "I think I'd be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad," he said. "I would have a very fly child. Very."

Will this be the world's most stylish baby? Really, how could it not be?
