It's a big day for pregnant people, Rihanna fans, and Drake!

If you're pregnant, congratulations on not only gestating a human being, but also doing so at the exact same time as Rihanna (truly impeccable timing). If you're a fan of The Robyn Rihanna Fenty, a hearty kudos to your unwavering patience for new music. And, if you're Drake—just, like, sorry, dude.

Yes, Rihanna is pregnant with her and boyfriend A$AP Rocky's first child, per People. The couple subtly debuted the happy news with photos taken over the weekend featuring Rihanna showing off her growing baby bump in a hot-pink vintage Chanel puffer left unbuttoned right above her stomach. The rest of her pregnancy announcement ensemble included body chains (like a colorfully bejeweled gold cross hanging above her bump) and a pair of ripped light-wash jeans. Rocky also showed out, wearing a knit hoodie, a denim Carhartt jacket, and leather pants.

Unsurprisingly, the announcement evoked mixed reactions from every corner of Twitter, with fans self-reporting cases of falling to their knees, replaying ANTI, and despairing over the Barbados native's seemingly never-ending musical hiatus. Of course, plenty were also delighted with the news, with some even taking inspiration from the mother-to-be (like, should I get pregnant too?).

Ahead, the best Twitter reactions to the most famous unborn baby of 2022.

The couple, who have been longtime friends, reportedly started dating in December 2020.

Rihanna previously opened up about her desire to become a mother in a 2019 red-carpet interview with Essence during the fifth annual Diamond Ball, saying, "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. It's a no-brainer. That's who I am. It's the core of who I am in spirit and DNA."

And in a May 2021 cover story for GQ, Rocky referred to Rihanna as "the love of my life," also expressing his preference for being in a relationship over being single. "[It's] so much better," he 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."
