Chris Brown appears to have congratulated Rihanna on the birth of her child.
The 34-year-old pop star, who had a rocky relationship with R&B singer Chris, 33, between 2007 and 2009, is said to have given birth to her first child with A$AP Rocky last week. And her ex-boyfriend appears to have sent his well wishes just hours after the news broke the following Thursday.
Taking to Instagram, he wrote, “Congratulations!” and adorned the Stories post with emojis of a pregnant woman, a heart, and hands folded in prayer.
The “Diamonds” hitmaker met Chris in 2005, when they were both new to the music industry, before embarking on a relationship that ended abruptly in 2009, when an argument on the way to the Grammy Awards resulted in Rihanna being subjected to physical violence at the hands of Chris.
A reunion between the two lasted from 2012 to 2013, after which Rihanna dated rapper Drake until 2016 and then had a three-year relationship with businessman Hassan Jameel before dating rapper A$AP Rocky in 2021.
In January, she announced that she was expecting his child. “Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are officially parents… welcoming a baby boy into the world,” a source told TMZ on Thursday.
While there was no news of the name of the baby, the “Umbrella” hitmaker is said to have given birth on May 13 in Los Angeles, just days after she was said to have been spotted in public for the last time at a restaurant.
