According to a new report, Chris Brown recently reached out to Rihanna — and while she thought the reconciliation was his attempt at a ~reuniting their relationship~, he allegedly was just trying to plan a little “R&R” — a.k.a. bonding between his ex and his 18-month-old daughter, Royalty!

Get it? R&R? Rihanna and Royalty?!

Anyway, a source tells Hollywood Life that while she was initially turned off by his offer of “R&R,” reportedly thinking the bad boy, 26, was being “all sexual,” the Barbadian beauty, 27, eventually came around once she realized what was ~really~ going on.

Chris and Royalty.

“He explained to her that he’s thankful for the gifts she sent Royalty and he’d love for the three of them to chill and reconnect,” the source says, adding the “Loyal” singer/dad-of-one challenged her to change one of the tot’s diapers!

The source continues, “[Chris] also told Ri how he wants his daughter to be around such amazing women like her… [She told Chris] Royalty is one of the most gorgeous little girls she’s ever seen.”

While it’s unclear whether or not the “BBHMM” songstress accepted the “R&R” invite, we must say — Rihanna sounds like the coolest babysitter/fairy godmother ever!
