Rihanna Representative Confirms She’s Pregnant With Second Child

A representative from her team just reportedly confirmed that Rihanna is pregnant with her second child. Moreover, this confirmation comes after the star's spectacular Super Bowl halftime show, where she played a slew of hits both on and off of awe-inspiring elevated platforms. Furthermore, someone from her team confirmed her pregnancy to The Hollywood Reporter. Of course, this confirmation came after rampant speculation online from the moment fans saw RiRi's belly. While it's always advised to be skeptical, it seems people were so hungry to know that the celebrations came quick.

Still, it's understandable if you were too caught up in the show's hit parade to notice. However, it all started when the 34-year-old singer opened her red coat during her rendition of "B***h Better Have My Money." When she revealed her belly to the screen many saw a baby bump right away. Even though it's a quick conclusion to reach, many wondered whether she simply had postpartum weight. Normalizing such things is a valid cause and an important one, but it looks like it's a conversation for another time.

Moreover, people have seemingly split opinions on her show. Although she can rock a colosseum all by herself, many felt disappointed by a lack of guest performances. However, the Fenty mogul hinted at the most special guest of all well before anyone knew. On Friday night, she had an interview with Nate Burleson on NFL+. When he asked her whether she thought of bringing special guests, her answer was curious, and we all should've seen it. “I’m thinking about bringing someone," she replied simply. While people speculated about Jay-Z or T.I., the true special appearance was something unheard of at previous big game shows.

Meanwhile, the "Diamonds" singer is already a proud mother of one with her boo A$AP Rocky. “When you become a mom, there’s just something that happens that makes you feel like you could take on the world," she expressed. "You could do anything. The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. It’s important for me to do this this year, it’s important for representation. It’s important for my son.” Stay tuned to HNHH for the latest on Rihanna and her incredible career and family.
