Celebrities are always coming up with spectacular new ways to announce their pregnancy, and Rihanna just blew them all out of the water. She announced she’s expecting her second child in the most epic way possible—during her Super Bowl halftime show!
After a lot of anticipation, Rihanna hit the stage for the first time in five years at Super Bowl LVII, and she knocked us off our feet from the moment she entered the stage. She was wearing a red Loewe jumpsuit, which was custom-made to showcase her growing baby bump.
Rihanna’s performance quickly sparked pregnancy rumors and it didn’t take long for the singer’s representative to confirm she was expecting her second child with the rapper A$AP Rocky. They’re proud parents of the nine-year-old boy and they’re yet to share his name with the public.
Headlining the Super Bowl halftime show is an achievement of its own, but the fact that Rihanna did it pregnant made it extra special. She was just three months postpartum when she was asked to headline the show, and saying yes wasn’t easy, but motherhood ultimately inspired her to hit the Super Bowl stage.
“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. There’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. It’s important for my son to see that,” she told Apple Music.
