NEW YORK - The 26-year-old singer had sparked rumours she is expecting her first child after banning smoking in the recording studio while she works. However, sources close to the star have strenuously denied the pregnancy claims,  “It’s true she has stopped a lot of her smoking but just to make sure her voice is at it’s best when she records,” the source told “But actually pregnant is not true.” Rihanna also fuelled pregnancy allegations by referring to her ‘baby’ in conversation. However, the Diamonds singer is said to be so attached to her upcoming album that she feels as though it’s a child. “Rihanna has told people close to her that she is working on her baby and that has got some people confused, but what she has meant is that her new album is her baby and some have misconstrued that as she is having a baby,” a source said.
