A$AP Rocky shares his thoughts on fatherhood.
The 33-year-old rapper, who recently welcomed a baby boy with partner Rihanna, opened up his relationship with the Barbadian-born superstar and discussed the type of father he hopes to be in the summer 2022 issue of Dazed and confused†
“I will always remind my kids never to lose their imagination, even as adults, no matter what,” Rocky told the magazine. “I really like to watch cartoons – I’ve watched like Teletubbies† Blue’s Clues† Yo Gabba Gabba† Peppa Pig and baby shark†
The hip-hop artist added that he hopes “to raise unbiased children. Not people who discriminate. And I’m not trying to describe a saint, but realistically I just want a cool kid with cool parents.”
RiRi first announced her pregnancy in late January, showing off her baby bump while walking with the “Fashion Killa” rapper in New York City. Since then, the Fenty Beauty mogul has been rocking some high-fashion maternity looks at Milan Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, and on date nights with Rocky.
A$AP Rocky also discussed his relationship with Rihanna during the interview. “I think it’s just natural. Of course we look good together,” he said. “You know, it would take a lot of work to get us to match strongly before we leave the house. Sometimes we match with a T, or we just wear the same clothes. If I have a buy a shirt she likes, i expect it to be stolen… but then i have to steal it back.’
A$AP confirmed his romance with the “Umbrella” singer in a May 2021 interview with GQ, after months of speculation that the two were dating. In the interview, he called Rihanna the “love of my life.”
