’90 Day Fiance’ Star Yara Zaya Recalls Surprise DM From Rihanna: ‘My Heart Dropped to My Knees’

Rihanna knows a good mom when she sees one! 90 Day Fiancé star Yara Zaya revealed that she once got a sweet DM from the “Where Have You Been” singer with regards to her parenting skills.

“I realized it, I was jumping and I couldn’t breathe, ‘Oh my gosh!’” Zaya recalled in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Zaya was the one who started the exchange, after seeing that the pop star and beauty mogul was expecting once again: “I messaged her to tell her congratulations when she was pregnant, OK? And she messaged me back and say, you’re such a good mom and I wish I could be good mama like you.”


“It was the sweetest message ever,” Zaya’s husband, Jovi Dufren, added.

So how does one respond to a DM from one of the world’s biggest stars? “I would type and delete and type and delete and type and delete,” she said. “I was so excited. My heart dropped to my knees, that was good enough.”

Ultimately, Zaya’s response remains a blur — she remembers sending the Fenty Beauty founder a “thank you” message but nothing else afterward.

Rihanna seems to be knocking motherhood out of the park as well. She and boyfriend A$AP Rocky are parents to their two children, sons RZA Athelston Mayers and Riot Rose Mayers. She welcomed Riot this past summer on Aug. 21 and later unveiled the first photos of him since his birth on Sept. 19, with a stylish family photo shoot by photographer Diggzy.
