More examples of the claim appeared on Facebook here and here.

The "Umbrella" singer is the richest woman in music and owns cosmetics company Fenty Beauty. She announced in February 2022 that she was expecting her first child with rapper A$AP Rocky.

A reverse image search for one of the photos circulating on social media led to this June 15, 2014 post on Rihanna's verified Facebook page. "Majesty x Aunty OhNaNa," the caption says, referring to a refrain in her hit song "What's My Name."

Another search led to this photo of Rihanna and Majesty, which was posted on her page the same day.

Majesty, now seven, is the daughter of Rihanna's cousin, Noella Alstrom, but the singer refers to her as her niece.
