The internet was spiraling when she revealed her pregnancy on stage in a glossy red outfit similar to the outfit in the “Money Heist”.
Rihanna wore a red jumpsuit with a bustier from Loewe, paired with Alaia Puffer coats with matching red gloves designed by Pieter Mulier. She was equipped with an MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon Cross High sneakers.
In addition, she wore accessories from Jacob & Co. Northern Lights watch with a red dial along with a Bayco ring of 19.47-carat cabochon Burma ruby and 5.66 carats of diamonds.
She Revealed Her Baby Bump In The Red Suit In Her Performance
The 34-year-old singer leads a vibrant show at Super Bowl halftime with her iconic hits, which include, “We Found Love,” “Where Have You Been,” “Diamonds,” “Work” and many others.
As she performed she revealed her baby bump in the red suit, in which her fans were awestruck to learn that she is again pregnant for the second time. She opened her performance in an all-red outfit as she descended on a platform while she sang “Bitch Better Have My Money.”
Rihanna and rapper Rocky are proud parents of their 9-month-old baby, who was born on May 19, 2022. Ahead of her vibrant performance, she revealed how becoming a mother helped her to muster up the courage to perform at the big event.
She specifically said “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 Superbowl 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,” she paused.
She continued that it was also important for her to represent her country, immigrants, and Black Women everywhere. She believes the big event is a lifetime opportunity to represent herself and others as well.
Rihanna sang her entire music catalog during the break of the game, from her most recent 2016 album Anti to her hit “Umbrella” which was released in 2007.
She revealed that her biggest challenge during the event was to befit her 18-year music catalog to 13 minutes of the break. She said that “The setlist was the biggest challenge. That was the hardest part – deciding how to maximize 13 minutes, but also celebrate.
That’s what the show’s going to be. It is going to be a celebration of my catalog in the best way.” She concluded her statement by citing that she believes she did a good job at narrowing down her long music catalog into 13 minutes.
TV producer Jesse Collins praised Rihanna for his explicit performance. Jesse Collins previously worked with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem, and, among others, for last year’s Super Bowl halftime.

Collins revealed that after last year’s Super Bowl, there was some pressure due to the presence of multiple global stars who outperformed the event.
However, Collins stated that working with Rihanna made the process much easier as she controlled the pressure surrounding her.
“She’s a lot of fun, very cool, never stressed. Just like, All right, I am going to do this real quick. The pressure never got to her. She just was in it from day one, and really warm and let everybody have fun with it,” Collins cited in his statement.
He added that there was always pressure with the show – especially when “you work so hard six months for just 131 minutes.” At the same time, he was also excited to work with Rihanna as the global superstar was re-entering music after a long time.
He stated that he felt overwhelmed by Rihanna’s show. “I feel like her vision was executed. She shocked the world and made her fans happy, and I’m glad we got another great book.”
He concluded the statement by appreciating the idea of putting the stage in the air, as the field was not large enough to hold a massive stage. “It was just a great idea of where there’s a will, there’s a way.” he ended.
