At the eagerly awaited US Super Bowl Halftime show at the State Farm Arena in Arizona on Sunday, pop sensation Rihanna made a triumphant comeback to the spotlight.
Her return to the stage, though, was a little special this time, in more ways than one. Not only did the superstar perform her first solo set since 2016, but she also casually disclosed her second pregnancy during the 13-minute mashup of her biggest hits.

There is currently no known due date for Rihanna‘s pregnancy. She is reportedly more than four months along because she also made her first pregnancy announcement at that time. Even though there hasn’t been any formal announcement, RiRi might be having a summer baby.
Riri hasn’t publicly discussed her second pregnancy yet, so it’s also unknown if she will give birth to a boy or a girl this time around. Her representatives verified her pregnancy after the show, so we know very little thus far.

Rihanna wore a fiery red jumpsuit by Loewe to the event, pairing it with specially made jackets by the brand Alaia to show off her growing baby bump. With the song Bitch Better Have My Money as the opening number and Diamonds as the performance’s closing number, she launched the show and lit up the stadium’s sky with fireworks while performing.
Rihanna’s last studio album, Anti, was released in 2016. In May 2022, she and her rapper boyfriend A$AP Rocky welcomed their first child, a baby boy, into the world. Rocky was also seen cheering for his girlfriend in the stadium audience while she performed.

In addition, Rihanna has yet to share the name of her first child. In November, she and A$AP told the Washington Post that they simply hadn’t gotten around to it.
“We’ve just been living,” she added, “But I guess there’s a certain freedom that comes with kind of just like getting it out there.”
