Rihanna Has Babies on the Brain: ‘3 or 4 of ’Em’

Rihanna is preparing for the next stage of her life: Motherhood.

In a revealing interview with British Vogue published Monday, the “Work” singer reveals plans to have children sometime in the next decade.

When interviewer Afua Hirsch asks the Fenty Beauty creator where she sees herself in 10 years, she responds, “Ten years? I’ll be 42! I’ll be ancient… I’ll have kids — three or four of ’em.”

However, the mogul does not feel she needs a partner in order to start a family.

When asked if she would become a single mother, she emphatically responds, “Hell, yeah.”

“I feel like society makes me want to feel like, ‘Oh, you got it wrong…’ They diminish you as a mother if there’s not a dad in your kids’ lives,” she adds. “But the only thing that matters is happiness. That’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That’s the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love.”

Rihanna’s baby announcement comes months after Us Weekly reported that she broke up with her boyfriend of nearly three years, Hassan Jameel, in January.

Last week, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo publicly thanked the Barbados superstar for donating personal protective equipment to the state amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Additionally, Ri made her return to music when she appeared on PartyNextDoor’s new song “Believe It.”
