Rihanna and A$AP Rocky just announced they’re expecting their first baby—and they did so with a series of instantly iconic photos taken in Harlem.

The pictures show the singer in a long pink coat, belly exposed, and the rapper standing under the arches of the historic Riverside Drive Viaduct on 12th Avenue.

A glimpse of Columbia Business School’s new glass building on the corner of W 130th Street is also behind them.

With the massive arches acting as a natural frame, the location is a favorite with photographers—find it in TCU's "The 10 most Instagrammable spots in Upper Manhattan."
