Pop superstar Rihanna is continuing to gain weight – even though she gave birth nearly two months ago, Media Take Out has learned.
According to a person close to Rihanna, she’s now 20 pounds HEAVIER than she was when she was carrying her child.
The pop star gave birth to a baby boy on May 13 in Los Angeles, it was her first child with ASAP Rocky. Since giving birth, Rihanna has been laying low and being a mom.
And like many new moms, she’s been spending so much time with her baby – that she’s neglected her usual fitness routine.
Rihanna’s pal told Media Take Out, “Rihanna put on weight since pregnant – like 20 pounds.” And recent pictures that leaked of Rihanna today seem to suggest that what Rihanna’s friend is saying is true.
This is what she looked like when she was 8 and a half months pregnant. She was reportedly 180 pounds.
And this is her yesterday. She’s now reportedly 200 pounds, according to social media reports:
