Rihanna has done it all in her remarkable 17-year music career. From Grammys to fashion brands, the Barbadian became the wealthiest female musician in the world according to Forbes magazine. Now, Rihanna’s looking to start a family, and she’s doing it with or without a man.
Doing It Alone?
In a recent issue of Vogue UK, Rihanna took some time to discuss working on new music. The conversation turned to her plans for the next 10 years. The singer admitted she wanted to have some kids somewhere down the line. “I know I will want to live differently….I’ll have kids — three or four of ’em,” Rihanna told the publication. Rihanna stated that if a man isn’t in her life, she’ll still build a family without one.
When it came to her decision, Rihanna looked at how society treats those with different views. “I feel like society makes me want to feel like, ‘Oh, you got it wrong…’ They diminish you as a mother if there’s not a dad in your kids’ lives,” Rihanna also told Vogue UK. “But the only thing that matters is happiness, that’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That’s the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love.”
Rihanna recently broke up with businessman Hassan Jameel at the start of 2020. The couple began dating in 2017 following Jameel’s divorce from Lina Lazaar. Marriage rumors quickly started when they were seen in public. Their different lifestyles led to the couple ending things.
This Has Become A Trend
When it comes to having kids alone, plenty of female celebrities have taken the plunge. While married to Jesse James, Sandra Bullock announced plans to adopt a child. The couple adopted their son Louis at the beginning of 2010. Months later, however, Bullock revealed she was divorcing James. In 2015, Bullock adopted her daughter Laila.
In 2011, actress Kristin Davis adopted her daughter Gemma Rose. For Davis, being a mother was something she wanted for a long time. While Davis has been in several relationships, the actress still hasn’t found the one. Seven years later, Davis adopted her son Wilson. Davis’ decision mirrors that of her character Charlotte York in Sex In The City. In the show, York learns she has a low chance of giving birth. While she becomes pregnant, York lost the child. At the end of the series, York adopts a girl named Lily from China. York would give birth to her second daughter Rose in Sex and the City: The Movie.
Following her breakup with Stuart Townsend, Charlize Theron adopted her daughter Jackson. Months after her breakup with Sean Penn, Theron adopted her second daughter August in 2015. For Theron, adoption was always her first choice. Growing up in South Africa, Theron was aware of several orphanages. Seeing so many kids looking for a home led Theron to go down the adoption route.
Talk That Talk
Even while Rihanna has kids in her future, the singer is focused on her projects. In 2019, Rihanna opened her fashion house Fenty through a partnership with luxury fashion group LVMH. Through this partnership, Rihanna became the first woman and person of color to work with the company. This fashion brand follows Rihanna’s lingerie brand Savage X Fenty, which was launched back in 2018.
For Rihanna, however, it’s all about delivering some new tunes for fans.The singer has been busy working on the follow up to 2016’s studio album Anti. The record earned Rihanna two American Music Awards for Favorite Album – Soul/R&B and Favorite Song – Soul/R&B (“Work”). With a slew of singles under Rihanna’s belt, the singer won’t have a problem churning out another hit. Rihanna might even pen a song about her potential family.
