Drake’s reaction to Rihanna’s recent announcement that she was expecting her first child was one of mixed emotions, according to an insider. The Canadian rapper and singer, who had a long-term relationship with Rihanna, was reportedly both happy and sad at the news.
The insider said that Drake was ecstatic for Rihanna, knowing that she had always wanted children. However, at one point in time, Drake had seen himself having a future with Rihanna, so the news was a confirmation that there was no future for them.
The insider added that Drake was sad that he was not going to be a part of the baby’s life, but he was happy for Rihanna and her partner, Hassan Jameel. Drake reportedly wished them both the best and hoped that they would have a healthy and happy baby.
Drake and Rihanna have had an on-again, off-again relationship since 2009. They have collaborated on several hit songs, including “Take Care” and “Work.” In 2016, Drake presented Rihanna with the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Although Drake and Rihanna have not been in a relationship for some time, the news of her pregnancy was still a shock to the rapper. It is clear that Drake still cares deeply for Rihanna and wishes her the best.
