Is Drake about to get married? According to a new report, Drake and Rihanna are back on and talking marriage — and babies.
Although the rapper was reportedly involved with Hailey Baldwin just months ago, he has allegedly been dating Rihanna for the last several weeks, and the couple could be making their relationship official sooner rather than later.
“[Drake and Rihanna] have talked about getting married and have even discussed eloping,” a friend of the couple revealed to Life & Style magazine, according to a report by Hollywood Life on July 20. “Rihanna has always wanted to get married in [her native Barbados].”

Drake and Rihanna have been linked on and off for the past several years and appeared to rekindle their romance earlier this year as Rihanna kicked off her “Anti World Tour.” However, in May, Drake seemed to strike up a romance with the much-younger Hailey Baldwin. After being spotted with the model at his Hidden Hills, California Memorial Day party, Drake was seen wearing Baldwin’s “H” necklace during a dinner date in West Hollywood, California, and rumors quickly began swirling in regard to their relationship.
According to one particular report, also shared by Life & Style, things between Drake and Rihanna turned sour weeks ago due to his alleged romance with Baldwin.
“Drake has been inviting Hailey to hang with him in the music studio, and Rihanna is furious,” the magazine claimed earlier this month, according to a report by Gossip Cop. “She’s jealous and doesn’t want him dating anyone else. Rihanna’s threatened because she knows the relationship might just stick. [Rihanna] won’t even talk to people who have been hanging out with Drake and Hailey together.”
In response to the report, a source spoke to Gossip Cop, claiming that in addition to Drake and Hailey Baldwin having nothing between them, Rihanna was certainly not mad about their supposed studio sessions.
Now, after reports of Drake’s attraction to Baldwin faded, he has once again been linked to Rihanna, and according to Life & Style’s first report, she’s very serious about their relationship.
“Rihanna is really close to her niece, and it’s made her realize she wants a baby soon…and Drake would love to be a dad,” the insider gushed, adding that the couple is planning to spend time with Rihanna’s family later this month during a short break from her “Anti World Tour.”
“[Rihanna] is overwhelmed with how happy she is with him,” the insider added.

News of Drake and Rihanna’s reportedly rekindled romance began swirling earlier this year.
Drake and Rihanna have been “secretly dating for months,” a source told People Magazine in May. “They have been keeping it a secret because this time around, they want to do it right and keep their relationship private.”
Throughout Rihanna’s tour, Drake has made several guest appearances, and their chemistry has been evident through their many joint performances. Still, when it comes to their life off the stage, Drake and Rihanna have done quite a good job at keeping their relationship under wraps.
“He still loves her and never stopped. Rihanna is the one that’s been not wanting to settle down in the past,” an insider explained to E! News in July. “They are having fun spending time with each other. Their music together got them close again.”
Drake and Rihanna have not yet responded to reports of their possibly impending wedding and baby plans.
