Rihanna and A$AP Rocky attend the Louis Vuitton Menswear Spring/Summer 2019 show as part of Paris Fashion Week on June 21, 2018 in Paris, France.

A$AP Rocky gets romantic in an interview with GQ magazine, giving some much-yearned-for insight into his relationship with Rihanna.

The couple hasn’t spoken publicly regarding their relationship, despite spending so much time together and being photographed by the paparazzi together, but it looks like things are pretty serious. A$AP got candid about how he feels about Rih, saying that being in a relationship is better when you’re with “the one.”

Rocky acknowledged that he probably shouldn’t talk about Rihanna, the triple-threat pop star, successful fashion and beauty entrepreneur, but he just couldn’t contain himself when her name was brought up. Described as “beaming like a teenager whose crush just accepted his prom invite,” Rocky calls Rihanna “The love of my life. My lady.”

As GQ reports, the exact timeline of their relationship isn’t quite uncertain. The pair were rumored to be a couple as early as 2013 when Rocky opened for Rihanna’s “Diamonds World Tour.” Though Rocky wouldn’t confirm a timeline of their relationship, he didn’t hesitate to profess his love for the Bad Gal.

He said it’s “So much better. So much better when you got the One. She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She’s the One.”

Taking a step further, Rocky was asked if he was ready to be a father, to which he replied, “If that’s in my destiny, absolutely. I think I’m already a dad! All these motherf—ers are already my sons — whatchu talkin’ ’bout! Nah, but like, I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.”

Music collaboration is also on the agenda, with Rocky hinting that Rihanna is listening to and responding to his new work. “I think it’s important to have somebody that you can bounce those creative juices and ideas off of,” he said of Rihanna “absolutely” influencing the new music. “It’s just a different point of view.”

He also hinted that the very fact of his being in a relationship has defined the vibe of the new material. He calls the highly-anticipated upcoming album All Smiles a “ghetto love tale” and says that it’s “way more mature” compared to his previous work. He revealed that he is about 90 percent done with the project.
