A$AP Rocky confirmed the romance In an interview with GQ last May, calling Rihanna the “love of my life” and “my lady.” Of Rihanna, Rocky said: “So much better when you got the One. She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. … I think when you know, you know. She’s the One.” When asked about parenthood, the rapper replied: “If that’s in my destiny, absolutely. … I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.”
