Fans and celebrities friends of the couple took to social media to congratulate Rihanna and Rocky on the news.

Rapper Remy Ma offered the Needed Me singer some baby naming advice saying:

"Well, her name is Rihanna, starts with an 'R.' His name is Rocky, starts with an 'R,' so they should possibly name their kid something that starts with an 'R'". She continued: "Remy is a unisex name, and I want them to know that. They need to know that".

When asked if musician mummies can still have their career whilst looking after their little one, the Love & Hip Hop star said: "Absolutely. So many have done it. You have the Cardi B's of the world, you have myself. Sometimes it's hard because we're made to think we can't do it, but, women? We can do everything. We run the world like Bey says."

"You make it work. When you love something like your career and you are passionate about it, you just make it happen."

As soon as the news dropped, fans and media outlets began speculating about the gender of the baby and when it is due. Fans have even started guessing baby names!

  1. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky baby names predictions

    Harlem

    One Twitter user wrote: "Baby name for Rihanna I guess: Harlem. (Either gender) Middle name Steven or Yams."

    The name is a good guess considering A$AP Rocky was born in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan.

    The name is also fit for a baby boy or girl. The fan also suggests Steven or Yams could potentially be a middle name for the little one, in tribute to A$AP Yams.

    Steven Rodriguez, professionally known as A$AP Yams, formed the collective A$AP MOB. He passed away in 2015 from a drug overdose.

    A$AP Junior or Lil Rocky

    Given that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky may have a baby boy, a Twitter user suggested nicknames for the little one.

    One fan wrote: "If it's a boy should Rihanna and Asap Rocky's baby be called Asap Junior or Lil Rocky".

    'A$AP junior' would be an extension of A$AP's collective, continuing his legendary history with the brand collective. 'Junior' would be added as he would be a junior.

    'Lil Rocky' would still have apart of A$AP Rocky's name in it too, but the child would be the little version – which is why the name suggested is 'Lil' Rocky.

    Wave Fenty Myers

    Capital XTRA's very own presenter Manny Norté put forward another name suggestion.

    He wrote: "I’d like to throw my name in the hat! I think @rihanna & @asvpxrocky should call their baby Wave Fenty Myers!! It’s a unisex name and cool as hell!!" on Twitter.

    it would make sense since their child will be 'wavey' - which is an adjective or noun that is used to describe a person when they are full of vibrations and cool.

    We have no doubts that RiRi and Rocky's baby will be more than wavey.

    ALBUM

    Fans have a running joke on social media that Rihanna should name her baby with Rocky, 'Album'.

    One fan wrote: "Rihanna should name the baby 'ALBUM' so that when she gives birth, she can say "I dropped an Album".

    Another fan added: "I know Rihanna, she will name the baby R9 and she will have a good laugh".

    A third Twitter user wrote: "Rihanna is going to name her baby Album. So she can finally say she released a new album."

While fans are guessing the names of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky's child, others are hoping that the name will be an ordinary name.
