It’s official: Rihanna is pregnant! After her spectacular Super Bowl performance, the news has been confirmed by her representative. The performance had social media buzzing, as Rihanna cradled her midsection during her hits-filled set.
Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance was a huge success. She ran through many of her greatest hits, starting with “Bitch Better Have My Money,” ending with “Diamonds” and touching on several smashes along the way, including “Only Girl (In the World),” “Work” and “Umbrella.” She even had a viral moment where she touched up her makeup mid-song, giving some nice promotion to her Fenty makeup brand. And, of course, the performance ended with a spectacular fireworks finish.
The pregnancy speculation was the highlight of the performance, though. After cradling her midsection several times during her set, the news was officially confirmed by her representative. This will be the second child for Rihanna and her partner, the rapper A$AP Rocky.
When she was expecting her first child, a son born on May 13, 2022, Rihanna spoke with Vogue about her pregnancy. She said: “When I found out I was pregnant, I thought to myself, ‘There’s no way I’m going to go shopping in no maternity aisle.’ I’m sorry — it’s too much fun to get dressed up. I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing.”
Rihanna’s pregnancy announcement has been met with a lot of excitement from her fans and admirers. Her Super Bowl performance was a triumphant return to performing after her five-year performance hiatus. With her pregnancy news and her amazing performance, it’s clear that Rihanna is still at the top of her game.
