On Monday (31 January), the 33-year-old singer revealed that she and rapper A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child.

Many friends, family, and fans have shown love and appreciation in the comments section of Rihanna’s post.

Filmmaker Amarachi Nwosu wrote: “Mama Ri! We are so happy for you Queen.”

Models Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid as well as Nicki Minaj, Kehlani, Ludacris, pro tennis player Naomi Osaka, and photographer Mario Sorrenti were among others to drop heart emojis and kind messages on Rihanna’s post.
