Rihanna is opening up about becoming a mom.

The Love On The Brain singer is British Vogue's May 2020 cover star, and she told the magazine she plans on having "3 or 4 kids" in the future.

The 32-year-old spoke about how busy her life is but said: "I'm working like this now so that I don't have to in the future.

"I know I will want to live differently," she said, which to her means having children within the next ten years. "I'll have kids – three or four of 'em," she added.

Rihanna recently split from longtime boyfriend, Hassan Jameel, and though there've been rumours she's dating A$AP Rocky, on raising children on her own she said, "Hell, yeah."

She added: "I feel like society makes me want to feel like, 'Oh, you got it wrong…' They diminish you as a mother if there's not a dad in your kids' lives. But the only thing that matters is happiness, that's the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That's the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love."

The May 2020 issue of British Vogue was created prior to the pandemic which has subsequently brought the world almost to a halt. In any case, we couldn’t imagine a better cover star than @BadGalRiri, an advocate for tolerance whose rallying cry has redefined every industry she’s turned her hand to, and whose generous spirit saw her make a $5 million donation to fight Covid-19 with her @ClaraLionelFdn earlier this month. In the new issue the multi-hyphenate talks to @AfuaHirsch about her forthcoming album, her desire to become a mother and why she won’t be pinned down.

Rihanna also spoke about her new music dropping soon, after PartyNextDoor just released their track Believe It with the singer.

She teased fans once more saying, "I can't say when I'm going to drop, but I am very aggressively working on music."

“I feel like I have no boundaries. I’ve done everything – I’ve done all the hits, I’ve tried every genre – now I’m just, I’m wide open. I can make anything that I want.” Poised to release a long anticipated new album, and with the continued success of “the Fenty effect”, #Rihanna’s work ethic is akin to a force of nature. In the new issue, the businesswoman tells @AfuaHirsch about managing her work-life balance and how she’s been “aggressively working on music”.
