The celebration was a family affair as some of Rihanna’s loved ones flew in from her hometown of Barbados for the special event.

Partygoers went home with gifts including T-shirts with throwback photos of RiRi and Rocky as kids that read, “I Went 2 Rih & Rocky’s Rave Shower and All I Got Was This Amazing Shirt.”

In an interview with Vogue, Rihanna shared her dream unconventional baby shower. “No brunch, no blush tones. And no animal-shaped nothing,” she said.

The 'Work' singer added: “Personally, I want a party. I want everyone to be plastered and crawling out. And it’s got to be co-ed! Don’t put me on no wicker chair somewhere with gifts at my feet where everyone is staring at me.”

The baby shower was reportedly postponed following Rocky’s arrest on Wednesday (Apr 20) in connection to a 2021 shooting.

The 'Fashion Kills' rapper and his beau Rihanna had arrived from Barbados when he was arrested at a private terminal at the airport.

Rocky was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and released on $550,000 bail. The alleged victim claimed Rocky fired multiple shots during an argument in Hollywood on Nov. 6, last year.

The victim allegedly received medical treatment for a minor injury after one of the bullets grazed him in his left hand.

Police searched Rocky’s Los Angeles house and reportedly discovered multiple guns.
