Rihanna is Pregnant with Her and A$AP Rocky’s Second Child

A representative for Rihanna has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the singer is pregnant with her second child. The news follows online speculation during her Super Bowl LVII halftime show earlier today.

Rihanna performed a huge medley of hits during the halftime show in Arizona – kicking it off with ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’, she moved through tracks like ‘Where Have You Been’, ‘We Found Love’, ‘Work’, ‘All Of The Lights’, ‘Umbrella’ and rounded it out with ‘Diamonds’. She also included a sneaky plug for her makeup brand Fenty, touching up her lipstick mid-song.

During the performance, Rihanna appeared to gesture towards her baby bump on a number of occasions, prompting speculation on social media. The baby will be Rihanna’s second with rapper A$AP Rocky – their first son was born in May 2022.

“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 told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview in early February. “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 that sorting out the setlist for the occasion was a huge headache, owing to the number of hits she’s amassed across her career. “The setlist was the biggest challenge,” she said. “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. I think we did a pretty good job at narrowing it down.”

While it was wildly speculated (or perhaps simply hoped) by her fans that the performance would be accompanied by a new single, nothing has been released at the time of writing. Her last releases were from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack in November 2022.
