Rihanna is loving motherhood.
The singer, who welcomed her first child with A$AP Rocky earlier this month, is settling right into her new role. A source close to the couple tells PEOPLE that both mom and dad are excited about becoming parents.
“Being a new parent is of course an adjustment, but they are doing great. Their baby boy is healthy and Rihanna is just in awe of him,” says the insider. “She really was so excited to be pregnant. She loved it. Meeting her son was of course extremely special too.”
Rihanna and Rocky’s baby boy was born May 13 in L.A., and she hasn’t taken her eyes off him. “Rihanna barely leaves his side. She is a fantastic mom,” the source adds. “She wanted to give birth in L.A. since she has a big house with a yard. She enjoys sitting outside with her baby.”
The billionaire mogul “doesn’t seem rushed to get back to work,” notes the insider, adding “[She] very much enjoys spending quiet time with her baby.”
Back in January, Rihanna and Rocky announced that they were expecting their first child when Rihanna was photographed walking around Harlem with her baby bump on display.
During an interview with ELLE, Rihanna joked that she would be a “pyscho” mom. “You talk about my kids, it’s over,” she told the magazine while comparing her parenting style to “Real Housewives of New Jersey’s” Teresa Giudice.
Rocky also gushed about becoming a dad. “I’m proud, man,” he told N.O.R.E. on “Drink Champs.”
In the days after she welcomed her son, TMZ claimed to obtain photos of Rihanna out for the first time. However, she says the images were taken before she gave birth. “This was weeks ago Lolol,” she commented.
