"I'm in love. I'm obsessed and I don't even feel guilty about it," Rihanna gushed about her first son.
Rihanna is well aware of how pregnancies can have a diverse range of experiences. During a red carpet interview at the Met Gala on May 1, the beauty entrepreneur discussed her current pregnancy and how it varies from her pregnancy with her first kid. “It’s so different from the first one,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “Just everything ... no cravings, tons of nausea, everything’s different.”

At this year's Met Gala, the singer, who is expecting her second child, dazzled alongside A$AP Rocky in a dashing experimental look. Rihanna described how this pregnancy is "so different" from her previous ones in an interview with ET's Rachel Smith. She added, "I feel good. I feel energetic." RiRi declared "she's in love" with her son, who she and A$AP brought into the world in May 2022, per PEOPLE. "I'm in love. I'm obsessed and I don't even feel guilty about it," Rihanna gushed.

While this was going on, A$AP continued to show his love for his girlfriend and shared an update on their son, saying, "[He's] growing big. Beautiful, happy baby." Rihanna laughed when asked what her 10-month-old baby thought of her Met Gala outfit, saying, "Oh, we had to keep him far away. He's a boy," she chuckled.

Rihanna wore an all-white outfit that covered the majority of her body, including her head, for this year's fashion event. The top of the dress was fully covered in enormous white flower patterns that started at her hips and extended all the way over her head, while the bottom part of the dress billowed out in a stunning A-line. The Umbrella hitmaker added a pair of white cat-eye sunglasses with artificial eyelashes as an accessory to her fingerless gloves, dramatic red lip, and ensemble.

Rihanna took off the top section of her dress shortly after walking the red carpet, revealing a more fitting bodice with spaghetti straps that highlighted her growing baby belly. A$AP Rocky, 34, made a statement in a red plaid high-low kilt over bejeweled wide-leg trousers while donning a white shirt underneath a dark jacket, a dark tie, sunglasses, and black shoes.
Rihanna attended the Met Gala for the first time since 2021 when she and A$AP Rocky strolled the red carpet wearing identically cozy, oversized coats. Following PEOPLE's confirmation of their relationship in November of the previous year, that appearance marked their public introduction as a couple.
