2 Surprising Ways Fans Got To Know Rihanna Was Pregnant – Riri Is Expecting Baby Number 2 With Asap

Rihanna graced the stage of the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday 12 February, she got more than just her fanbase talking about her pregnancy.

The Super Bowl is the biggest event in American professional football and is watched by millions of people all over the world.

The 2023 Super Bowl took place on Sunday, February 12, as fans watched the Kansas City Chiefs face off against the Philadelphia Eagles. FYI, the Chiefs defeated the Eagles on a late field goal; Patrick Mahomes named MVP wins the second title. The Chiefs rallied to beat Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl LVII at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Rihanna, Chris Stapleton, and Sheryl Lee Ralph headlined Sunday’s Super Bowl performances on the night which was watched by well over 100 million people. Rolling Stone ranks Rihanna’s 2023 performance as the 8th-best Super Bowl Halftime show ever.

Looks like Rihanna had the best guest star ever at the Super Bowl Halftime Show — her second child! The superstar, 34, confirmed her second pregnancy by debuting her baby bump during the Big Game’s musical performance (which, tbh, is the main event for many of us). The exciting news was later confirmed by a rep for the singer to The Hollywood Reporter.

The “Umbrella” singer donned a fiery red jumpsuit and jacket, with a belt slung under her baby bump to accentuate the monochromatic look — definitely making the bun in her oven the star of the ensemble.

1. Rihanna’s pregnancy was evident to the world when she showed up during the Super Bowl Halftime Show performance with a baby bump.

After months of anticipation, Rihanna’s performance at the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show took place at Arizona’s State Farm Stadium tonight (February 12).

Nine-time Grammy-winning artist Rihanna took center stage at halftime of Super Bowl LVII between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.

Rihanna sang and danced to a number of her hits at the event. Rihanna performed well-known hits like “We Found Love,” “Where Have You Been,” “Diamonds” and “Work,” and even hinted she was pregnant during the performance, which was buzzing on social media Sunday.

Rihanna’s pregnancy was confirmed after an explosive 12-song set. Rihanna delivered an electrifying and hit-heavy half-time show at Sunday’s Super Bowl, but social media went into a meltdown when the singer showed a baby bump.

This is the second child for the nine-time Grammy winner, who is also mama to a baby boy born last May to Rih and her partner of nearly three years, A$AP Rocky, 34. The superstar couple has been tight-lipped and strict about maintaining the child’s privacy — we don’t know his name, or what he looks like — so we likely won’t get to know much about baby No. 2 whenever they make their debut.


2. A representative for the singer confirmed Rihanna is expecting another child following her explosive performance Sunday.

A representative for Rihanna confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the superstar is pregnant following her explosive Super Bowl halftime show.

The incredible singer did something different from most halftime performers: She did her entire performance solo, not bringing on any of her famous friends to join her in performing her biggest hits. An incredible feat, and one that she previously said she was able to do thanks to the energy she gets from being a mother and knowing she’s showing her son everything his incredible mama is capable of!

“I was like, ‘You sure? I’m three months postpartum. Should I be making major decisions like this right now? I might regret this,’” she said.

She told The Hollywood Reporter, “When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you can take on the world — and you can do anything. And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world, so as scary as that was … there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. It’s important for my son to see that.”

To say Rihanna is capable of, well, anything is quite an understatement. The multihyphenate (who, we should probably mention, is nominated for an Oscar at next month’s Academy Awards…) also made her debut on the Forbes billionaire list this year — making her the richest female musician in the world — thanks to not only her work as a musician and performer but also as a businesswoman.

The “Umbrella” singer is behind successful brands Fenty Beauty and Savage X Fenty, which revolutionized the beauty and fashion industries, respectively, with their approach to inclusivity when it comes to their impressive ranges in both shade and size.

While a new baby is undoubtedly a reason to celebrate, news of the bundle of joy came repeatedly with one minor groan: This may mean the world isn’t going to get the new album we’ve been so desperately waiting for.

She also said fitting her 18-year catalog into a 13-minute set was tough.

“The setlist was the biggest challenge. That was the hardest part — deciding how to maximize 13 minutes, but also celebrate. That’s what the show’s going to be — it’s going to be a celebration of my catalog in the best way,” she said. “I think we did a pretty good job at narrowing it down.”

But this is Rihanna we’re talking about — the same superstar who managed to perform without any supporting acts, pregnant, during the most-watched TV event of the year. There’s nothing this woman can’t do!
