While no official announcement on Rihanna's baby's gender has been released, fans have speculated on whether she is expecting a boy or a girl. Following her pregnancy photograph, social media followers couldn't help but notice what they thought was a key clue: Rihanna's outerwear, an $8,000 antique Chanel coat, was bright pink. Many fans interpreted this to suggest that the "Love on the Brain" singer is expecting a girl.

The vocalist of "Diamonds" went shopping in March 2022, which almost validated these assumptions. Proving even billionaires love a good bargain, Rihanna, 34, hit up the cost-friendly retail chain. According to images received at the time, Rih was seen combing the aisles of baby clothes at Target (a relatable queen) and selecting a ruffled orange frock. Despite having a net worth of $1.7 billion, the singer chose to shop for her baby items at Target, a popular - and affordable - department store. This week, the expectant mother sparked a fuss inside a one-stop-shop in Los Angeles. Fans watched as she picked out things for her soon-to-be baby, including onesies and socks.

While shopping for a baby gown, the Fenty entrepreneur also added some items for boys to her cart. As the due date approaches, fans have speculated about the baby's gender, but neither she nor the baby’s father-to-be A$AP Rocky has revealed the gender of their child.

While she could have been shopping for someone else, all evidence points to Rihanna giving birth to a girl.

Of course, these are all just theories at this point, but we're sure Rihanna would be thrilled if they were real. Rihanna has previously expressed her wish to raise a strong Black woman, telling Essence in 2019–“I’m a Black woman. I came from a Black woman, who came from a Black woman, who came from a Black woman and I’m going to give birth to a Black woman. It’s a no-brainer. That’s who I am. It’s the core of who I am in spirit and DNA.” She also added at the time, “My mother is an incredible example of how to fight through obstacles in life." I’m sure her mom taught her that, and that’s how I’m going to be. We are impeccable, we’re special, and the world is going to have to deal with that.”

Let us know in the comments below your thoughts on the baby’s gender.
