Rihanna is giving fans a first look of her 7-month-old baby in a new 45-second video. 

The singer and A$AP Rocky welcomed the little one in May and on Saturday Rihanna posted a cute video of the baby boy on TikTok. The video features mom and baby riding around in the backseat of a car while the baby yawns, smiles and tries to grab the phone from her hand. 

“You trying to get mommy’s phone,” Rihanna says in the video. 

The “Lift Me Up” singer announced she was expecting at the top of the year with a viral photo shoot in New York City. The singer and beauty entrepreneur showed off her baby bump at various events, including the front rows of top fashion shows in Milan and Paris.

The video marks the first time fans have been able to see the baby since his birth in May.

Rocky teased that the photos of the baby would be “coming soon” in an interview with Complex published Dec. 5. He said fatherhood has helped him “prioritize” and that since welcoming the baby into his world he’s been “all smiles.” 

“I think fatherhood gives me more time to do exactly what I want. I don’t have time for anything that isn’t priorities,” he told the publication. “Everything is just based around my newfound love for being a dad and a family man. It’s lit right now.”

Ahead of their baby’s arrival, Rihanna graced the cover of Vogue magazine’s May issue where she discussed Rocky getting out of the “friend zone,” the moment she and the rapper “became my family,” and how she learned that she was pregnant.

“People don’t get out of the friend zone very easily with me,” she said in the cover story published April 12. “And I certainly took a while to get over how much I know him and how much he knows me, because we also know how much trouble we can land each other in.” 

Rihanna said the rapper “became my family” during the 2020 quarantine lockdowns. The two music artists left many of their luxuries behind to go on a road trip together from Los Angeles to New York. 

Fans will get to see even more Rihanna when she takes the stage in February for the Super Bowl LVII halftime show. The pop star hinted at her performance by posting a photo of a football to her Instagram in September. 

Official Twitter accounts for Apple Music and the NFL then confirmed Rihanna’s performance.
