The Super Bowl LVII halftime performer share with British Vogue her experience with being a new mommy, “Oh, my God, it’s legendary.” She continued, “It’s everything. You really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever…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 it doesn’t matter.”
Riri, mentions how it was dressing while pregnant, “Dressing for pregnancy was such a piece of cake,” she said. It’s what comes after that’s hard, she maintained: “But dressing in postpartum, what the fuck do you do? The week that I came home from the hospital—that was nothing but sweats and hoodies. But the weeks after that, you don’t know what to put on. Everything is too small or too big.”

She continued, “You kind of just gotta wait it out otherwise you end up buying so many clothes you’re not going to use. Well, unless you get pregnant again.”
Bringing home that little bundle of joy can be a crazy feeling for everyone, she shares, “You’re just going through the motions,” she continues, “and even then you’re so paranoid. Because you’re like: they trusted us to come home with this baby? This new life? With us?” She starts laughing. “No doctors, no nurses, we’re just… going home?”
This interview was done before she knew she was pregnant and discussed the idea of a new album, “I want it to be this year,” she says. “Like, honestly, it’d be ridiculous if it’s not this year. But I just want to have fun. I just want to make music and make videos.”
As for her thoughts on more kids with her partner ASAP Rocky, “Listen, I’m down for whatever. My wish would be I would like to have more kids but whatever God wants for me, I’m here.”
