Rihanna is learning the hard way that an innocent picture with a newborn baby can land her in massive trouble with critics and mom shammers.
Via social media, Rihanna decided to melt hearts by uploading a few photos where she is in a hospital room holding an infant.
In a photo, the brand new baby is in Rihanna’s arms. While in the second, the baby is more o less kissing Rihanna’s face.
The Fenty Beauty founder explained that she was kissing and cuddling Baby Justus, whose mom is her personal assistant, Jennifer Rosales.
She captioned the photos: “I’m so grateful that I was here for your first day on the playground, kid!! Aunty loves you so much already. CONGRATULATIONS to the Davis fam! @jennnrosales you a beast for making this look easy. @the_aa you a champ and a super dope dad. @aaronrodolfodavis I know you are not going to like sharing yo mama, but you get all the new toys, lil bro only gets your old ones, so you are good! Here’s to baby #JustusJoshuaDavis.”
On person attacked Rihanna: “I love you but give that baby a few more weeks of immunity from her mama’s milk before you put your face on hers like that 😭 exactly these babies are getting sick from people kissing them now and days.”
Another commenter joined in to say the photos were cringe-worthy: “Right!!! I cringed, looking at how her Face Is pressed against that newborn’s face with makeup on.”
This fan defended the singer: “All of you do the f*cking most. Baby will be perfectly fine, and I’m sure I have way more experience caring for sick and healthy babies than all of you combined. White ppl always got sumin to say but stay watching US…damm? gina lol.”
This supporter shared: “That is like it was her baby all of you; she got the flavor and delivery braids…He’s going to be so spoiled by his aunty ❤️.”
In a new interview with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, Rihanna was asked about having children in the near future.
She said: “I don’t think about stuff like that. But I don’t know … God’s plan. I look forward to all of the pregnancy rumors after this interview.”

On a red carpet event, Rihanna added: “I’m a black woman. I came from a black woman who came from a black woman who came from a black woman. And I’m going to give birth to a black woman. My mother is an incredible example of how to fight through obstacles in life. I’m sure her mom taught her that, and that’s how I’m going to be. We are impeccable, and we’re special. We’re special, and the world is going to have to deal with that.”
Is it wrong or right to kiss babies who are so young?
