Drake can’t stop gushing about his love for Rihanna to family and friends, having told the singer herself that he plans on doing everything he can to make their relationship work this time around.
The couple is famously known to breakup and get back together, having enjoyed an on-again, off-again romance since 2009. But recently, it was revealed that Rihanna is finally looking for more than just a friend with benefits. She’s growing to the idea of marriage and motherhood, all of which are plans she sees in her near future.
Will it be with Drake? Insiders are alluding that Drake definitely wants to be the man who finds himself becoming the father of Rihanna’s child after marrying the Bajan beauty in a lavish wedding ceremony with all of their closest friends and family in attendance.

With that said, however, Rihanna still seems to think that Drake could potentially leave her hanging and ditch her for somebody else. After all, it was just last year when the rapper was said to have been dating tennis champ, Serena Williams, before he abruptly — and allegedly — decided to call it quits with her.
He then found himself reunited with Rihanna, as the twosome began working on several collaborative songs together, including their number one single “Work.” Their chemistry isn’t just hot in the studio, it’s even hotter behind the scenes, but Rihanna seems hesitant to give Drake all of her until she’s certain that the Canadian-born is ready to settle down.
“Drake loves Rihanna relentlessly,” the insider reveals. “He went from zero to one hundred real quick with his love for her, and he’d be a damn fool to jeopardize their relationship now,” a source tells Hollywood Life.

“He’s being real with her and reassuring her that he wants to be exclusive by killing his old ways,” the insider conclude, referring to Drake’s alleged cheating ways, which would supposedly see him change girlfriends on multiple occasions a year. It more or less gave Rihanna the idea that Drake might be scared of committing himself to one woman.
And while that may have been the case in the past, Drake has realized that he’ll soon be pushing 30. He’s achieved a tremendous amount of success; from releasing some of the best-selling rap albums of the decade, to penning a Grammy-nominated diss track at his rival Meek Mill. Drake wants to set his focus on other things outside of music, and that includes working on a solid relationship, with the potential of it growing into marriage and children.
Rihanna is currently supporting Drake on his Summer Sixteen tour alongside rapper Future. The 28-year-old has not left the “One Dance” hitmaker’s side ever since he openly shared his feelings for her at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 28.

Drake told millions of viewers at home how he’s been head over heels in love with Rihanna since the age of 22, Us Magazine shares, before allowing the singer to make her speech for the Vanguard award. As the twosome walked offstage together, Drake held Rihanna’s hand and posed for photos with her family, which fans considered the seal of approval from the singer’s parents and siblings.
Rihanna will continue her Anti World Tour later this month before she performs the set for a final time at the Formula One Arena in Abu Dhabi on November 27.
