Barbados superstar Rihanna put on a powerful performance during the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday night in the USA… as well as revealing she is pregnant. Rihanna is now trending at number one on Twitter worldwide, including in South Africa.

It was officially confirmed after the performance in Glendale, Arizona, that Rihanna is pregnant with her second child with American rapper A$AP Rocky. The couple’s first son was born in May 2022.

It’s been seven years since Rihanna last performed. This time she arrived on a floating stage and performed a packed set of hits: “B- Better Have My Money”, “Where Have You Been”, “Only Girl (In the World)”, “Diamonds”, a mash-up of “S&M” and “Rude Boy”, “Work”, “Wild Thoughts”, “Pour It Up”, “All of the Lights”, “Run This Town” and “Umbrella”.

While Rihanna sparkled in an all-red jumpsuit, she was surrounded by a team of white-hooded dancers. Watch below.
