The star captioned the post where she has been styled with chaotic hair and makeup: "Literally how I feel in postpartum with 2 under 2."

The interviewer, who happens to have previously worked as Rihanna's stylist, remarked: "I can't believe I'm backstage with you at 3:30 in the morning and you have two babies", to which the 'Diamonds' singer replied: "Mel Ottenberg, have you met me? That’s the usual."

The 'We Found Love' singer went on to open up about her relationship with her rapper boyfriend now they are parents. She quipped: "I be feeling bummy as s**t next to this man. I feel like, goddamn, I look like his assistant. I'm getting on a plane. We should be in sweats. He wants to be in a full Bottega suit. I'm like, "Why you got to do that to me?".

She added that her wardrobe has adapted now she is a mother. "It’s more like I spend my time getting the kids dressed to death, and then I’m like, 'What’s the most comfortable outfit to wear around them?' What's not going to feel uncomfortable on their face or on their body or make me feel like I can’t hold them properly?' Moms are lazy dressers in real life," she said.

Rihanna had her two sons, RZA and Riot, in quick sucession. With RZA being born in May 2022 and Riot bringing up the rear in May 2023, the musical superstar has had to adapt to motherhood by hitting the ground running.

She admitted in an interview with Vogue that while she and A$AP Rocky weren't planning to start a family when she fell pregnant with RZA, they were "certainly not planning against it" either.

"I always thought it would be marriage first, then a baby, but who the f--- says it has to be that way," she confessed.
