Representatives for Rihanna confirmed on Sunday evening that the superstar is pregnant.
Many speculated online whether she was pregnant after her Super Bowl halftime show where she showed a baby bump. This is as she wore a skin-tight red costume.
Nate Burleson, a CBS News anchor and ex-NFL receiver, was one of the first real confirmations, as he interviewed her before the performance. When a viewer tried to determine if a baby was the “surprise guest”, Burleson said, “Bingo!”
In May 2022, 34-year-old Rihanna welcomed her first baby with Rapper A$AP Rocky. Right before the Super Bowl, Rihanna stated that motherhood made her feel as if it was time for her first live performance in several years.
“When you become a mom, there’s just something that just happens when you feel like you can take the world, you can do anything. The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages of the world. There’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all,” she said.
