Rihanna Shares How Son RZA Is as a Big Brother, Teases New Music and Kids' Clothing Line (Exclusive)

Rihanna dished on being a boy mom while promoting her new Fenty collaboration.

Rihanna is loving her life as a boy mom! The 35-year-old singer and designer opened up to ET's Kevin Frazier about raising her two sons at her phatt end-of-the-year party to celebrate the Fenty Creeper Phatty Sneaker on Monday night. 

"They're the best though. Having a house full of boys, I thought I was a girl mom, but I'm a boy mom. I love this. I love it," RiRi gushed to ET of her life with her sons and her longtime love, A$AP Rocky. 

The couple welcomed son RZA in May 2022 and his baby brother, Riot, joined the crew in August. RZA is already embracing big brotherhood. 

"He struggled in the beginning, but he loves his little brother," Rihanna said of her eldest child. "Every time he thinks we're not looking at him, he'll come over and touch him. If the baby's crying, he'll just hold his hands. It hurts him if the baby's crying. He'll wake up in the morning just saying, 'Baby, baby, baby.' He loves him. It took a while, but he got there, and I'm proud of him."

Becoming a mom has made an impact on her work with Fenty. 

"This collab for me was being able to invite my entire family into a design and collection that I've made," Rihanna shared. "I got to see my babies in these shoes."

And though she's just "starting" with shoes, Rihanna adds that there will be a kids' line in Fenty's future. 

"Yeah, yeah, everything's to come," she assured us. 


This mirrors the same sentiment Rihanna shared with ET back in November 2022. 

"You know, I always thought doing kid stuff would be cliché and the obvious thing to do when you have a baby. It's, like, the obvious next step," she told ET at the time. "But when I went shopping, that's when I realized like, OK, maybe I need to start making the stuff that I want my kids to wear because it's hard! I got my own ideas."

As for what fans dying for new music can hope for, Rihanna shared that music and a tour are in the future. 

"We're always gonna go back on tour. I want to do a tour when there's new music," she explained on Monday night. "I feel like it's only fair that my fans get what they've been waiting on, which is new music, and after that, let's just blow everything up."
