Rihanna has confirmed she's pregnant following her Super Bowl Halftime Show.

The singer blew everyone away with her incredible performance, which went for 13 minutes and covered more than a decade and a half of her music.

But everyone was speculating that she was pregnant due to her outfit.



The red suit was zipped down past her belly button and some thought they could see the outline of a baby bump.

She even cradled her tummy towards the end of the performance.

A representative for the singer has since confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that she is pregnant with her second child.

We got to hear so many of Rihanna's best songs she's released over the years, including 'Work', 'We Found Love', 'Diamonds' 'Run This Town' and 'Wild Thoughts'.


She even made time to give a shoutout to her Fenty Beauty brand in the middle of her performance.

Rihanna shares a nine-month-old boy with her partner A$AP Rocky and she admitted she was worried about doing the Halftime Show not too long after giving birth.

She said (according to The Hollywood Reporter): “I was like, ‘You sure? I’m three months postpartum. Should I be making major decisions like this right now? I might regret this'.

“When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world — you can do anything.


"And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world, so as scary as that was … there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all.

“It’s important for my son to see that.”

While it will undoubtably be one of the biggest performances in the singer's career, she won't be paid a cent for it.


According to the NFL policy, the league covers all costs related to the production of the halftime show, which includes travel expenses.

But, as NFL spokesperson Joanna Hunter told Forbes in 2016, that doesn't include paying the singers.

"We do not pay the artists. We cover expenses and production costs," she said, as per the Daily Star.

Rihanna made sure that not only her music was on show today.


Her fashion and beauty brands Savage X Fenty, Fenty Beauty, and Fenty Skin have all had a digital facelift to feature a 'Game Day' section.

The pop queen's lingerie and loungewear brand Savage X Fenty also took the chance to capitalise on her Super Bowl appearance, adding 'Team Fenty' jerseys and sweatsuits to their merchandise.

As per the brand's official Instagram, fans can visit a Fenty pop-up shop in Phoenix until Saturday to nab one of the 'hyper-exclusive' merch items and limited-edition beauty products.
