Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are officially in a family of four as they've welcomed their second child into the world.
In her first performance in seven years, the singer kicked off the show suspended high above the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, dressed all in red.
With a knowing look to the camera, she then opened her jacket and stroked her pronounced stomach.
News of the baby's arrival has now been confirmed by sources speaking to Entertainment Tonight, with one commenting: "Rihanna and A$AP will spend the early days of parenthood out of the public eye and won't make any immediate plans to debut the new baby."
Another added: "Rihanna and A$AP are great right now. They’re so excited to grow their family and are so united when it comes to parenting. They have so much fun together and are very in love. They already shared a special connection and parenting together has made their bond even stronger."
The 'Umbrella' star was widely praised by fans for commanding the Super Bowl stadium while pregnant, as she treated us to a selection of hits from her back catalogue including 'B**ch Better Have My Money', and 'We Found Love'.
In Vogue's March 2023 issue, released later that week, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky posed with their then-nine-month-old son.
The happy mum gushed about her family, telling the publication she had found her roller-coaster first five months as a mother ‘legendary’.
Rihanna said: "It's everything, you really don't remember life before, that's the craziest thing ever.
"You literally try to remember it - and there are photos of my life before - but the feeling, the desires, the things that you enjoy, everything, you just don’t identify with it because you don’t even allow yourself mentally to get that far, because it doesn’t matter."
The singer described the birth as 'beautiful', adding: "I cannot believe it.
"Essentially, from one person I became two.
"You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It’s nuts.
"And oh, my gosh, those first days are insane. You don’t sleep. At all.
"Not even if you wanted to. We came home, cold turkey, had no one.
"It was just us as parents and our baby. Man, you’re a zombie for the most part."
Rihanna said her son had thankfully started sleeping through the night - but that the same couldn’t be said for her.
“You know I don’t,” she said.
“Look at us right now. No, I’m up. I’m like, ‘OK, time to watch some Housewives.’ These are my hours.”
Rihanna also referred to A$AP as her 'best friend', saying she feels 'everything changes' when you have a baby.
However, she added: “I wouldn’t say it’s done anything but made us closer.”
