Rihanna is expecting her second child, The “Diamonds” singer announced her second pregnancy while performing on stage at the NFL championship game in Glendale, Arizona. She also showed off her growing baby bump.
As the first pregnant performer in the halftime show, the 34-year-old 2023 Super Bowl halftime act walked the stage in Phoenix on Sunday wearing nothing but bright red from head to toe.
Rihanna’s first child with A$AP Rocky was born in May, so the new baby will have a big sibling.
Rihanna hinted in a pre-game interview with Nate Burleson that she had a surprise for fans, but she did not perform any new songs or bring any musical guests to the Super Bowl halftime show stage.
Rih opened her 13-minute set with “B***h Better Have My Money” as her hand subtly rubbed over her belly. Fans immediately flooded Twitter with speculations.
She continued to ride her wave of nostalgia with classic gems including “Where Have You Been,” “Only Girl,” “We Found Love,” “Rude Boy,” “Work,” “Wild Thoughts,” “All Of The Lights,” “Run This Town,” and “Umbrella.”
Yet, just as the song suggests, “Find light in the beautiful sea/I choose to be happy,” Rih closed out her performance with her 2012 hit, “Diamonds.” Though she never addressed the spiraling rumors, her reps did confirm the baby speculations.
Her New York rapper beau and father of her children was, of course, front and center for the entire show like the proud man and lover he is.
