Musician and makeup mogul Rihanna has been the subject of pregnancy rumors recently, but she's shutting them all down with a cleverly crafted DM. After receiving a DM from one of her fans, named Jen, Rihanna set the record straight, telling the fan that this new rumor isn't anything more than the other times fans' speculated she was with child.

“Can I come to the baby shower sis!? True or not your babies are going to be beautiful. Sorry everyone’s up in your uterus right now,” the fan said in Rihanna's DMs.
The singer quickly quipped, “haaaaa! Stawwwp! You ain’t came to the first 10 baby showers! Y’all breed me every year dammit lol.”
The Instagram account later shared the post on its main page, updating the rest of the Navy that she's not expecting any kind of babies within the next nine months — though, we're hoping a musical baby (an album) is still a possibility.
“Her uterus said ‘stay out of my damn business’ I spit my water out when she said ‘the first 10 baby showers’ regardless i’m happy for her either way she’s living life to the fullest! #riri #loveya,” Jen wrote alongside a few laughing emojis.
According to Elle, the rumors first started after the singer was spotted wearing an orange dress while attending the Barbados ceremony where she was named a National Hero. The curve-clinging fabric of the gown prompted tabloids and many on social media to speculate that the singer could be pregnant with boyfriend A$AP Rocky's child.
Though she's not looking to have a baby at the moment, the singer has shared her plans to have children one day in the future.
“Ten years? I’ll be 42! I’ll be ancient," she told British Vogue last year. "I’ll have kids — three or four of ’em,” she added, saying that she'd do it on her own if she didn't find the right partner to raise children with.
“Hell, yeah, [I'd have kids on my own]. I feel like society makes me want to feel like, ‘Oh, you got it wrong…’ They diminish you as a mother if there’s not a dad in your kids’ lives. But the only thing that matters is happiness, that’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That’s the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love," she said.
