We reckon it is the BEST property news update in NZ!

Rihanna has revealed the exciting news that she is expecting her first baby with boyfriend A$AP Rocky as she debuted her baby bump during a romantic stroll in New York City.

The Fenty Beauty founder and her partner spend a lot of time together in the city, and also rented a $415,000-a-month property in the Hamptons in the summer of 2020, but it is likely that Los Angeles will be where the family will call home.

Rihanna bought two neighbouring mansions in Beverly Hills in early 2021 that would provide the perfect base to raise her child, offering privacy and security, along with all the incredible amenities you would expect.

The mum-to-be first bought a $13.8million (£10.2million) five bedroom and seven bathroom property, before snapping up a neighbouring home for $10million (£7.4million). The second home is smaller but no less impressive, with four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and a large outdoor swimming pool.

Rihanna’s plans for the properties remain to be seen, but they would offer the opportunity for friends and family to come and stay nearby once her baby has been born, should she wish.

And that is not the full extent of Rihanna’s property portfolio; the singer-turned-entrepreneur owns a penthouse in Century City, Los Angeles, where she reportedly spent much of her time during the coronavirus pandemic.

The 42-storey tower boasts a 75-foot pool, a 24-hour valet, and high security to protect the famous residents, who have also included Friends actor Matthew Perry and Paula Abdul.

Meanwhile, Rihanna also owns a $22million (£16.3million) beachside villa in her native Barbados, with five en-suite bedrooms, a swimming pool, private gym and 24-hour concierge. It is located close to the five-bedroom home she bought for her mother in 2012.
