Rihanna Reveals That She’s Struggling to Find Balance in Her Life as a New Mom
Rihanna’s life has transformed since having her baby. The singer admitted that becoming a mom makes you ’’feel like you can take on the world.’’ But while the gift of motherhood increases our inner strength, it also presents a set of challenges, especially when it comes to our career. And the star’s honest experience is surprisingly relatable.
Rihanna welcomed her baby boy with boyfriend A$AP Rocky in May. And the new mom is totally thriving as a new parent, aiming to make the most of this life-changing experience.
A source close to the singer shared, “She is obsessed with him and feels fortunate that she has been able to slow down and just be a mom.”
However, when it comes to her career, the Umbrella singer has opened up about struggling to find a balance between her demanding work schedule and her role as a new parent, admitting that, “It’s very different.”
She explained, “The balance is almost impossible because no matter how you look at it, work is always something that’s going to rob you of time with your child.”
Consequently, the star noted that she is now more selective about the projects she takes because anything she’s going to say yes to “has to be worth it.”
At the same time, becoming a mom has boosted her confidence to tackle more high-profile performances like the Super Bowl halftime show, which she was very excited about.
Speaking of the show, Rihanna explained that it “is one of the biggest stages in the world” and that it is “scary” but that there is also “something exhilarating about the challenge.”
She further added that her son is one of the main reasons she decided to perform at the Super Bowl.
She said that her doing the show this year is “important for representation.” Then she noted, “It’s important for my son to see that.”
Rihanna’s philanthropic endeavors have once again come to the forefront, highlighting her dedication to global causes. From her early initiatives like the Believe Foundation, which aids children with terminal illnesses, to the Clara Lionel Foundation, which provides worldwide education, health, and emergency aid, Rihanna’s commitment to humanitarian efforts is unwavering. Notably, her annual Diamond Ball gala raises significant funds for her foundation. Additionally, her collaborations with global organizations and her personal donations further solidify her as a leading celebrity philanthropist.
The mystery surrounding the name of Rihanna’s baby son has finally been unraveled. Rihanna and her partner, A$AP Rocky, have named their son ’RZA Athelston’, seemingly paying homage to the influential rapper and Wu-Tang Clan leader, RZA. The name revelation came after Rihanna was spotted wearing Wu-Tang Clan merchandise on multiple occasions. Interestingly, the baby shares his father’s middle name, Athelston, though there’s a slight variation in its spelling in some reports. As for her second child, Rihanna continues to maintain an air of mystery, only revealing her pregnancy during a Super Bowl halftime show.
A$AP Rocky, Rihanna’s boyfriend, recently shared intimate photos of Rihanna in her role as a mother, offering fans a rare glimpse into their private life. The images depict Rihanna’s deep bond with her son, RZA, showcasing her nurturing side. Alongside these heartwarming photos, A$AP Rocky also shared a snapshot of Rihanna’s progressing second pregnancy. Rihanna’s reaction to the post was heartfelt, indicating the deep connection between the couple and their child. A video within the post has also sparked fan theories about the gender of their second baby, thanks to A$AP Rocky’s choice of baby-pink toothpaste and shower cap.
