Rihanna Reveals She's Pregnant During Super Bowl LVII Halftime Performance

 Rihanna shocked fans during her Super Bowl LVII performance.

Rihanna officially made her way back to the mainstage.

Rih just finished performing a 13 minute greatest hits set for Super Bowl LVII. But the talk wasn't about the performance or set list or guest appearances (there were none). Rather, it was about Rihanna showing off her baby bump. Yes, Rihanna is pregnant with baby number two. (A rep later confirmed the news to Hollywood Reporter.)

As expected, the setlist featured songs from her entire career. Rihanna started the show with "Bitch Better Have My Money" (which is funny considering that artists don't get paid for performing at the Super Bowl.) She followed up that with older hits including "Where Have You Been," "Only Girl (In The World)," "We Found Love," and  "Rude Boy."

 The only slight musical surprise came when she performed songs she was featured on, including DJ Khaled's "Wild Thoughts," Kanye West's "All Of The Lights," and JAY-Z' "Run This Town"

She finished the set by running back two of her most popular singles: "Umbrella" and the Unapologetic hit "Diamonds."

Again, while the performance was good, the talk after was all about her confirming that she was having another baby. Rihanna gave birth to her first son with A$AP Rocky back in May. Before the performance she talked about taking the Super Bowl gig because she was inspired by her son. 

She said:

“When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you can take on the world, you can do anything. The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. So, 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.”
