ASAP Rocky has a child who makes him a proud and dedicated father. Despite his illustrious relationship history which has included a good number of notable names, the Peso crooner only became a father for the first time on May 19, 2022, when he welcomed an as-yet-unnamed son with his partner, Rihanna.
ASAP Rocky is a talented American rapper, actor, record executive, and music producer who has pretty much seen and done it all in the world of musical entertainment. The above notwithstanding, he has only recently stepped into the arena of fatherhood, a fact that is contrary to the belief and expectation of most of his fans considering his rich relationship history. Here is what we know about the rapper’s offspring.
How Many Kids Does ASAP Rocky Have?
ASAP Rocky is a father of one. Looking at the rapper’s birth family, which includes a late older brother and an older sister named Erika, one would easily arrive at the opinion that ASAP Rocky understands what it means to have a family.
Unlike what we see with rappers and multiple baby mamas these days, the record executive has only one child. While no one can rule out the fact that he may eventually add to that number, ASAP is content with doting on his son for now.
Who Are ASAP Rocky’s Children?
So far, we can confirm that ASAP Rocky has one child, a son whose identity has yet to be revealed to the public. The child is a product of his current relationship with Under the Umbrella crooner, Rihanna. The couple welcomed their bundle of joy on May 19, 2022. Here is the limited amount of information about ASAP Rocky and Rihanna’s son.
- Date of birth: May 19, 2022
- Age: 1 years old
- Mother: Robyn Rihanna Fenty
ASAP Rocky and his partner have yet to reveal the identity of their son since he was born in May 2022. The couple’s decision to keep his identity secret could be down to a lot of factors, including a preference to not expose him to the spotlight from such a very young age.
We can confirm though, that the celebrity kid was born in Los Angeles, California, and that he inherited strong Barbadian roots from both of his parents. While we are not in the know about what the child is currently up to, ASAP Rocky once spoke about how he would love to raise his kids in an interview with Dazed & Confused.
He said he plans to teach his children never to lose their imagination even as adults no matter what. He further stated that he hopes to raise open-minded children who would not be too quick to judge or discriminate. He added that he was not talking about raising saints but rather cool children with cool parents.
The couple’s act of keeping their son a secret is not so surprising considering how they kept their relationship a secret at the beginning. The power couple has known each other for around a decade now with their first meaningful contact coming in 2013 when ASAP joined Rihana’s Diamond Tour. She would also make an appearance in his Fashion Killa music video later that year to kickstart a beautiful friendship between the pair.
Despite being good friends, the couple carried on with their respective love lives with different partners until January 2020. Just a few weeks earlier in December 2019, ASAP and Rihanna had been spotted together at the London Fashion Awards, and by January 2020, the Work diva let the public in on the fact that her 3-year relationship with billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel was over.
The rumors regarding the rapper and Rihanna became stronger following the end of her relationship with Jameel when they started hanging out together more often. For months the couple remained silent on the matter as speculations grew louder. The question was not whether they had a relationship, their 7-year friendship up to that point confirmed that.
It was a question of whether the dynamic of their relationship had changed from being just friends to lovers. On several occasions, ASAP and Rihanna played down the speculations linking them as lovers by pointing out that she had just come out from a grueling relationship and was enjoying being single again. She also pointed out the fact that she was hanging out with ASAP only because she was comfortable with him.
ASAP and his lady played cat and mouse with the media and the public just like they are doing with their kid for months until the rapper confirmed the suspicions about his relationship with the singer during a May 2021 interview where he called her his lady and the love of his life.
Eventually, in January 2022, the couple revealed that they were expecting a child, and on May 19, 2022, they welcomed their as-yet-unnamed baby.
Who Does ASAP Rocky Have Kids With?
So far, ASAP Rocky only has a kid with award-winning singer Rihanna, who he has been dating since 2021 even though they have been friends for much longer. However, as previously stated, the talented rapper has had his fair share of romantic relationships but it is on record that none of those relationships has ever led to the birth of a child.
ASAP Rocky’s relationship history officially began with his year-long romance with Australian singer Iggy Azalea. Official records of the relationship posit that they began dating in June 2011 before deciding to call it quits in June 2012. Aside from the timeline of the relationship, not much is known about their time together or why they decided to go their separate ways.
Not long after, several outlets romantically linked the rapper to British singer Rita Ora, but neither of them came out to confirm or deny those speculations. In November 2012, ASAP confirmed that he was dating American beauty queen and model Chanel Iman, and even though they were together for longer than his relationship with Iggy Azalea, the romance eventually ran its course and ended in October 2014. It did not produce any offspring.
Soon after that relationship ended, ASAP began dating Love & Hip Hop: New York star Tahiry Jose. Their relationship continued over a three-year period and eventually ended in 2017, amidst reports that he was also dating Kendall Jenner.
