Rihanna Also Revealed She’s Expecting Her Second Child
Not only did Rihanna deliver an epic performance, but she also revealed that she is pregnant with her second child.
A representative for the Fenty Beauty owner confirmed to PEOPLE that she is expecting her second child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky. Rihanna is now the first pregnant woman to ever headline a Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Rihanna’s Apple Music Halftime Show was produced by DPS. Roc Nation and Jesse Collins served as executive producers, while Hamish Hamilton serves as the performance’s director.
“Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn,” Jay-Z, Rihanna’s “Umbrella” collaborator and the founder of Roc Nation, previously said in a statement. “A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment.”
The pop star has mostly remained out of the spotlight in music over the last several years to focus on her Savage X Fenty lingerie and beauty line. In May of 2022, Rihanna welcomed her first child with her boyfriend A$AP ROCKY.
The worldwide phenomenon later released two new songs, “Lift Me Up” and “Born Again,” which marked her first new music since 2016’s Anti. Both tunes appear as part of the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack.
The Barbados native recently scored her first-ever Oscar nomination at the 95th Academy Awards for Best Original Song for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever single, “Lift Me Up,” which is also her first solo single in six years.
Rihanna follows previous Super Bowl halftime performers Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, The Weeknd, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, and many more.
