Rihanna’s electrifying Super Bowl halftime show at State Farm Stadium in February left viewers in awe, especially when she revealed her baby bump during the performance. Nevertheless, in a recent Access Hollywood interview, the singer of "We Found Love" shared that her surprise pregnancy announcement was not part of her initial intentions.
During the interview, Rihanna explained that her decision to showcase her baby bump during the halftime show was out of necessity. She shared, "I did what I had to do, right? My jumper couldn’t zip up." The singer revealed that no one knew she was pregnant, and she instructed her stylist to ensure the outfit was stretchy. The undergarment turned out to be stretchy, and the baggy jacket was intentional, but the zip just stopped at a certain point, leading to the impromptu baby bump reveal.
Following her confirmation of pregnancy in a British GQ interview a week later, Rihanna gave birth to her first child with A$AP Rocky in 2022. In the Access Hollywood conversation, she delved into the transformation in her view of her partner in the context of parenthood. "His role as a dad has shifted my love for him," she articulated, underscoring the appeal of Rocky’s interactions with their children. She described him as a great, patient, and loving leader, with their kids being obsessed with him.
