This momma sure knows how to shine bright like a diamond!

Rihanna has been setting Instagram on fire with her post which features her sultry outdoor photo shoot while she was pregnant with her firstborn, RZA.

In the series of photos shared by the Diamonds singer on May 19, Rihanna flexed her baby bump while topless against the backdrop of an ocean. Her body glistened under the sun along with the gold and silver jewelry she was wearing. 

Completing her barely-naked ensemble are her stilettos and dark string bikini bottom. 

The pop superstar added more spice to her post with a cheeky caption that reads, "Rub on ya titties."

"In honor of my first pregnancy, embracing motherhood like a g, and the magic that this body made! Baby RZA…" Rihanna continued. "He in there not having a clue how nuts his mama is, or how obsessed he was bout to make me

The post is not only a stunning throwback to her pregnancy last year, but also the singer's confirmation of her baby boy's name.

On May 11, Daily Mail and several US media outlets released reports that the name of Rihanna's firstborn is RZA Athelston Mayers after the former obtained a copy of the child's birth certificate from an unnamed source. His name reportedly pays homage to Robert Fitzgerald Diggs or "RZA," the leader of the American hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan. 

Rihanna's beau, A$AP Rocky, confirmed the rumors about their son's name in an Instagram Post on the child's first birthday last May 13.

The rapper wrote "WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN 🤲” HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY TO MY 1st BORN . RZA❤️

Rihanna, 35, and A$AP Rocky, 34, have always been protective of their son RZA, with the Fenty Beauty founder sharing the first look at his son when he was already seven months old last December.

In her interview for the cover story of Vogue last December, Rihanna said that they have been in "protective mode" with their child because as RZA's parents, they are the ones who should only decide when and how to tell the public about him.

The couple is set to welcome their second child this year after Rihanna first revealed her baby bump during her halftime performance at the 2023 Super Bowl last February.
