Rihanna Confirmed Her Second Pregnancy During the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show
It’s official: Rihanna is pregnant with her second child! The artist confirmed the news on stage during the Super Bowl halftime show, sending Twitter spiraling after she seemingly revealed her pregnancy in the first moments of the show. Following her epic performance, Rihanna’s rep officially confirmed her pregnancy to The Hollywood Reporter.
Rihanna previously spoke about her baby son inspiring her to do the show, saying during a pre-Super Bowl press conference, “When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you can take on the world and do anything. The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. As scary as that was, because I haven’t been on stage in seven years, there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. It’s important for me to do this, this year. It’s important for representation, it’s important for my son to see that.”
A source told Us Weekly back in May 2022 that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky wanted another child soon, saying, “They want a big family for sure. Rihanna loved being pregnant and fully embraced her pregnancy body.” Us Weekly also noted that the couple wanted their second baby “sooner rather than later.”
The insider added at the time that “they have some help but Rihanna has always said she wants to be hands-on… She’s a very caring person…very nurturing.”
Now, if we’ll get a new album before she gives birth… we’ll just have to wait and see.
