A$AP Rocky had previously expressed a desire to have children with Rihanna someday. He said, “If that’s in my destiny, absolutely. Nah, but like, I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.”

Rihanna too had expressed how she’d realized life was getting short and had taken a no-nonsense approach to the entire matter. Speaking to British Vogue, the ‘Love on the Brain’ singer said “I know I will want to live differently”, adding that she saw herself with “three or four” children in 10 years time, whether she had a partner or not.
