Rihanna has praised her partner A$AP Rocky’s parenting abilities, calling his devotion to their two young sons a major “turn-on.”

In an interview with Access Hollywood, the Umbrella hitmaker gushed over her partner’s “great” and “patient” approach to fatherhood with sons RZA and Riot.

“I loved him differently as a dad,” Rihanna declared. “What a leader, what a great, patient, loving [dad],” she said.

She went on to describe her children as “obsessed” with Rocky while she jokes about fading into the background.

Rihanna and Rocky, both, 35 began dating in 2020. They welcomed their first son, RZA, in May 2022, initially keeping his name and image private. The name RZA comes from Wu-Tang Clan’s producer and rapper, a nod to Rocky’s musical inspirations.

In August 2023, Rihanna gave birth to the couple’s second son, Riot. They shared the first family photos with their infant boys the following month.

According to Rihanna, their older son RZA struggled at first to adjust to his new baby brother.

“He loves his little brother. It took a while, but he got there, and I’m proud of him,” she stated, praising the toddler’s affection.

Rihanna named in Most Powerful Women list

Meanwhile, despite being the richest female musician in the world, Rihanna still could not make it into the top half of the 100 Most Powerful Women in 2023.

The latest list released by Forbes Magazine puts the singer at 74 falling below other female musicians like Taylor Swift and Beyonce.

With an astounding net worth of $1.4 billion, Rihanna trumps Swift, who was only named a billionaire recently, and Beyonce who has a net worth of $540 million. Swift and Beyonce ranked 5th and 36th respectively.
