Rihanna is expecting her second child, her rep confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter Sunday. The news comes mere moments after the 34-year-old “Work” singer sparked pregnancy rumors during her career-spanning Super Bowl LVII halftime show while wearing a formfitting red jumpsuit.
This will be the second child for Rihanna and her boyfriend, rapper A$AP Rocky. The couple, who started dating in late 2020, already share an 8-month-old son, whose name they have yet to reveal.
The billionaire Fenty Beauty founder‘s father, Ronald Fenty, told Page Six exclusively last week that his daughter is “loving” motherhood. Ronald also revealed to us that Rihanna had gone through a “few names” for her baby boy before choosing one.
“She’ll have my head if I tell you!” he joked. The nine-time Grammy winner returned to the stage on Super Bowl Sunday after a years-long hiatus from music. She last released an album, “Anti,” in 2016 and has not toured since that year
However, prior to Rihanna’s pregnancy announcement, music insiders told Page Six that they had heard rumblings about the superstar entertainer going back on the road.
“Even some members of Rihanna’s team have been kept in the dark. It’s all a big secret, from the details of her halftime show to what’s next — if anything,” one source said at the time.
