Rihanna Announces She’s Pregnant with Baby No. 2 at the Super Bowl
Rihanna is going to be a mom of two! A representative for The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the happy news.
Fans were convinced that Rihanna announced her second pregnancy during her explosive Super Bowl Halftime performance. At the start of the show, as Rihanna descended onto the field from a floating stage, she opened her red-hot tracksuit to reveal a seemingly growing baby bump, and promptly rubbed her stomach.
“OH MY GOD RIHANNA IS PREGNANT AGAIN,” one user wrote on Twitter.
“Ok so everyone just googled “rihanna pregnant” right,” another added.
Rihanna recently welcomed her first child, a baby boy, with boyfriend A$AP Rocky last year.
Earlier this week, the “Love on the Brain” singer opened up about how becoming a mother influenced her decision to take on the stage for the Super Bowl Halftime show.
“When I first got the call to do it again this year, I was like, ‘You sure?’ Like, I’m three months postpartum, like, should I be making major decisions like this right now? Like, I might regret this,” she said during the Apple Music Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show press conference. “But when you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world, you can do anything.”
She added, “And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. So as scary as that was, because I haven’t been onstage in seven years, there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. And it’s important for me to do this this year. It’s important for representation, it’s important for my son to see that.”
