Rihanna says her and ASAP Rocky didn't hire a nanny when their son was born

Rihanna says her and ASAP Rocky didn't hire a nanny when their son was born

The singer says they were alone when they took their baby home

Rihanna hit the headlines last weekend when she announced that she was expecting her second child.

While performing at the Super Bowl halftime show, the singer revealed her baby bump, with fans putting two and two together before the news was confirmed by her team.

RiRi welcomed her first child into the world last year, a baby boy, and has been getting accustomed to motherhood ever since.

But while you might expect a megastar like her and partner A$AP Rocky - real name Rakim Mayers - to have an entire team there to help them, the 34-year-old says that the couple were totally alone.

Speaking to Vogue about becoming a parent, Rihanna said: "We came home, cold turkey, had no one. It was just us as parents and our baby. Man, you’re a zombie for the most part.”

But while she says that it's a 'beautiful' experience becoming a mother, it's changed the perception she has of herself as a person.

“Essentially, from one person I became two," she told the outlet. "You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three.

"It’s nuts. And oh, my gosh, those first days are insane. You don’t sleep. At all. Not even if you wanted to."

Even the idea of just leaving a hospital with a newborn baby left her feeling super 'paranoid'.

“Because you’re like: they trusted us to come home with this baby? This new life? With us?” she said. "No doctors, no nurses, we’re just… going home?"

Despite the emotional rollercoaster, though, the singer said that she's loved being a mother and struggles to recall what life was like before.

She said: "You literally try to remember it – and there are photos of my life before – but the feeling, the desires, the things that you enjoy, everything.

"You just don’t identify with it because you don’t even allow yourself mentally to get that far, because…. Because it doesn’t matter.”

This comes a week after Rihanna's incredible halftime performance at the Super Bowl last weekend.

Taking to the stage for her first live performance in over five years, the popstar descended from high up, dressed in a red outfit and surrounded by dancers.

She then treated the thousands packed into the stadium and the many millions watching back at home to a medley of her hits, including 'Diamonds', 'Rude Boy', We Found Love', 'Umbrella', and 'Work'.

In short, it was pretty spectacular.
