Will Rihanna Give Birth Before Marrying ASAP Rocky?

The traditional idea is that you get married before children. This is a value that a lot of people still follow. Many are very critical of the ones who do not build their families in this order. In popular culture, we’ve seen many famous people having children before marriage and vice versa. While neither of these things is a determining factor for how well a relationship does, some people still feel the need to follow the “rules.” TK Kirkland recently discussed Rihanna getting pregnant by A$AP Rocky despite the pair not being married.

On January 31st, Fenty CEO Rihanna revealed she was expecting her first child with rapper boyfriend A$AP Rocky. The former friends and collaborators have been dating for a while now. They unveiled her growing baby bump in a streetwear-inspired shoot under the 1 train on 125th street in Harlem. Since then, Rihanna has been making the rounds in bump baring outfits showing off her growing bundle of joy. Rihanna and A$AP are still reportedly just dating, with no reports to allude to them being engaged or planning to get married.

While speaking with Vlad TV, TK Kirkland revealed that he feels Rihanna played herself by getting pregnant before getting married. According to him, now she will just be the baby momma, never the wife. Vlad seemed to agree, listing off a number of “successful” celebrity couples who wed before having children. He listed off Beyonce and Jay-Z, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz. TK said that Rihanna, the billionaire, should not be a baby mother.

While many feel like being married before kids is a way to ensure you stay together, the truth is that many successful couples had kids before marriage with no issues, and a lot of couples who marry before having kids don’t last. Also, there have been rumors of ASAP and Rihanna planning to tie the knot, so no one knows if she will give birth before marriage. Regardless, it’s ultimately her choice if she decides to do it. Let’s take a look at some famously unwed co-parents.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are currently on their second child. The superstar couple has never wed, although it’s been reported that Kylie really wants to. Last fall, she flashed a picture of matching rings Travis brought her and their daughter Stormi. The pair have yet to announce plans to tie the knot.

Halle Berry recently sparked marriage rumors while on vacation with her current boyfriend, Van Hunt. It’s been a long road for Berry, who swore off marriage after a rocky divorce from Eric Benet in the ’90s. The two did not have any biological kids during their union, but she did adopt his daughter from a previous relationship. When it came to her next relationship with Gabriel Aubry, Berry opted to avoid marriage altogether. The pair were together for a total of 5 years and had one child together without ever jumping the broom.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt grew their family expeditiously throughout their union but only wed towards the very end. The pair met in 2004 and had their first biological child together in 2005. Jolie had adopted two kids on her own before Pitt that he also adopted ahead of their firstborn arriving. By the time they got married in 2014, they had a total of 6 children together. All their kids participated in the wedding. Maddox and Pax walked their mom down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne were flower girls, and Shiloh and Knox were ring bearers. They would eventually divorce shortly after. Adele and Simon Konecki welcomed their child Angelo in 2012 before getting married. The pair would eventually part after seven years together, only two of which they spent as a married couple.

While sister Kim waited till marriage to start having kids with ex-husband Kanye West, Kourtney has only recently unveiled plans to walk down the aisle and not with the father of her kids. Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick famously dated for over a decade without ever getting married. The pair share three kids, Mason Dash Disick, Penelope Scotland Disick, and Reign Aston Disick. Unfortunately, the union did not last. She is currently dating Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker. Barker was married to model Shanna Moakler for several years, but they also had their first child before being married. London Asher Baker was born in October 2003 but his parents did not marry until the following year.
