Rihanna reveals she has ‘unlocked new levels of love’ for her mom

The We Found Love singer took to Instagram to send a special birthday shout-out to her mother, Monica Braithwaite, while revealing that her own pregnancy has amplified the "love and respect" that she has for her mom. "Today is my Queen's birthday!!!" she captioned a throwback photo of the two. "Being on the verge of motherhood, unlocked new levels of love and respect I have for my mommy in a way that I could never explain! Love you mum!!! Happy Birthday! In January, Rihanna revealed that she was expecting her first child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky by sharing photos from their glamorous New York photoshoot. Since then, the mogul has been breaking the internet with her pregnancy looks from Milan Fashion Week to Jay-Z's 2022 Oscars after-party. The soon-to-be mom also shared the best advice that she's gotten so far. "Probably the best advice is to sleep now because I won't get much later," Rihanna told Elle.
