Everyone knows what comes after that. The playground chant has become a reality for Robert Duffy, who married Alex Cespedes in Provincetown, Mass., in 2010. Then, after a year-long domestic adoption process, last summer they brought home Victoria Alexis Duffy — all 9 pounds, 12 ounces and 22 inches of her.
Shortly after that memorable August day, the Duffys sold their West Village townhouse and bought a new, larger one nearby, moving into the Ritz-Carlton as a makeshift home-away during renovations. In the midst of it all, the Marc Jacobs president underwent surgery for a hip replacement and has been recovering while he and Alex, a real estate executive-turned-stay-at-home dad, adjusted to life as new parents.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
