RiRi is back—and she's pregnant with baby number two!
After sparking pregnancy speculations during her Super Bowl halftime performance—her first live show in seven years—Rihanna's representative has confirmed to entertainment site The Hollywood Reporter that she is expecting her second child.
The nine-time Grammy award-winning singer finally came back on the live stage during the interval of the NFL game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, Feb. 13 (Philippine time). She was seen rubbing her stomach several times during her performance, where she rocked a red jumpsuit layered with a red bodysuit. She and her boyfriend, rapper A$AP Rocky welcomed their first child in May last year.

As she previously hinted, her set list at the show was a “celebration” of her catalog. She sang her hit songs Only Girl (In the World), Where Have You Been, Rude Boy, Work, We Found Love, Umbrella, and Diamonds, among other tracks we absolutely missed seeing her perform live.
In a Feb. 9 press conference, the Barbados-born singer described Super Bowl as “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,” she said.
The Barbados-born talent, however, stressed the importance of her Super Bowl halftime show performance as it’s an opportunity for her to represent immigrants and black women on a big stage.
"That's a big part of why this is important for me to do this show: representation. Representing immigrants. Representing black women everywhere. That's key for people to see the possibilities," she said.
“It's a long way from home, right? It's a beautiful journey that I'm on. I could have never guessed that I would have made it here, so it's a celebration of that,” she added.
