Rihanna has hit back after fans questioned her calling her baby boy “fine”, telling one: “You just keep your lil cougar paws away from him.”

The Love On The Brain singer recently unveiled snaps of her nine-month-old son with ASAP Rocky in a Vogue shoot, and as she shared some images on Instagram she wrote: “My son so fine! Idc idc idc!”

However, some of the star’s fans took issue with her use of the word “fine” to describe the baby.

But Rihanna, 34, wasn’t taking it lying down and started responding to people who commented.

When one asked who would call a baby “fine”, she shot back: “His mother!!!”

And when another suggested that words like “cute” or “adorable” may have been more fitting, the star joked: “You just keep your lil cougar paws away from him and we good.”

Rihanna recently revealed that she and Rocky were expecting their second baby together.

The Umbrella singer was the halftime performer for the 2023 Super Bowl and her baby bump was clearly visible as she took to the stage in a red jumpsuit with a bodysuit underneath.

Her representative later confirmed that baby number two was on the way.

Rihanna welcomed her son – whose name she hasn’t shared – in May last year.
