Rihanna and Chris Brown are reportedly in talks about starting a family, despite being yet to publicly confirm their relationship status.
The singers fueled reconciliation rumors in recent days after posting intimate photos of one another online via their respective Twitter accounts. A new report claims that the pair is so committed that Rihanna, 24, is adamant that she wants to have a child with Brown, 23.
"[Rihanna] asked her record company when the best time would be for her to take off, as she wants a baby," a source reportedly told Closer magazine.
"They just stared at her. Everyone was pretty open-mouthed. But she hasn't got any time free in her diary until 2014," the source explained.
The Bajan singer ended her relationship with Brown in 2009 after he physically assaulted her during a verbal argument. However she has been spending more time with the "Turn Up The Music" singer in recent months and while her father Ronald supports their union, her mother Monica reportedly does not.
"[Monica] called Rihanna to yell at her, asking what she's doing with her life," the source said. "They've been blowing up over the Chris issue for weeks now. Her mom has told her not to waste any time on Chris and said, 'Is this the type of man you want as your baby's dad?"
Brown ended his relationship with his long term girlfriend Karrueche Tran, 24, in October and admitted it was over Rihanna, which fueled speculation that they are back together. During the same month, Ronald spoke out about his daughter's relationship with Brown and sparked reports of an engagement.
"Whatever makes her happy. I hope one day she will get married. Everyone adores Chris; he's a super guy," Ronald had told Life & Style magazine.
"The family loved Chris Brown before they even met him. I always thought he was extremely talented. He always gave me great respect," he went on.
