The Nine-time Grammy Award winner Rihanna confirmed she was pregnant with her second child after surprising fans with a baby bump during her highly anticipated comeback at the Super Bowl 57 last Sunday.
The 34-year-old, who gave birth to her first child just nine months ago, sent social media into a frenzy as she took to the stage and rubbed her tummy in front of a global audience of millions at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, where the Kansas City Chiefs triumphed over the Philadelphia Eagles 38 – 35.
A representative for the star confirmed the baby news shortly after the performance finished.
It marks the first time she has performed on live television since 2018 when she joined DJ Khaled on stage to sing Wild Thoughts at the Grammy Awards.
Rihanna started the show suspended on a platform high above the field as she belted out her single B**** Better Have My Money.
She was dressed in a baggy scarlet jumpsuit that covered up her curves and was strapped loosely on her.
Woah baby!Rihanna confirmed she was pregnant with her second child after surprising fans with a baby bump during her highly anticipated comeback at Super Bowl 57 last week
That was quick!The singer and partner A$AP Rocky welcomed their first child just nine months ago
She wore a skin-tight bodysuit underneath that highlighted her burgeoning baby bump.
She shares her first child, born on May 13, 2022, with the rapper A$AP Rocky, who kept a low profile at the event.The two have kept their growing family under the radar, and neither musician has shared their child’s name.
The platform she was suspended on then descended toward the field, where she joined a bevy of dancers in white on stage.
She kept her dancing moves to a minimum while letting the backup dancers pick up the slack.
Rihanna stuck to the hits and didn’t reveal any new songs during her performance, which featured 12 songs.
The crowd went wild as she transitioned into Where Have You Been, followed by the hit Only Girl (In The World).
She then transitioned through the songs, We Found Love, Rude Boy, and Work, followed by Wild Thoughts and Pour It Up.
The hitmaker made some controversial song choices, including an excerpt of her verse from the rapper Kanye West’s All Of The Lights, and she also performed part of Jay-Z’s Run This Town, which also featured West in its original version.
West was disgraced after making numerous anti-Semitic comments, including reportedly praising Adolf Hitler.
Starting with a bang!She opened her performance with B**** Better Have My Money. The song was rather ironic, given artists don’t get paid by the NFL for halftime shows

Rihanna concluded her performance with the one-two punch of Umbrella and then Diamonds as the closer.
She eschewed some of the pyrotechnics of recent Super Bowl halftime performances and seemingly bet that her fans would be happy to see her without the added theatrics.
The superstar, born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, has yet to release a solo album since January 2016.
Her only solo music in the last seven years came in October, when she released Lift Me Up in tribute to the late actor Chadwick Boseman for the Marvel film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which earned the singer a nomination for an Academy Award.
Although Rihanna’s partner A$AP Rocky (real name: Rakim Mayers) stayed out of the spotlight for most of the game, he took the field to root for his love in a black jacket that featured her tattooed hand holding a football.
Rihanna’s pregnancy reveal was surprising, as she had been hesitant to attend the performance because she had recently given birth.
‘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 via .
‘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,’ Rihanna continued.’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,’ she added.
