Rihanna's much-anticipated Super Bowl performance had several highlights, as the singer included several of her greatest hits, starting with B***h Better Have My Money, and ending with Diamonds. Her performance at the State Farm Arena in Glendale, Arizona, where the Philadelphia Eagles were playing the Kansas City Chiefs saw the singer cradle her midsection several times, which led many fans to speculate on social media whether she was pregnant again.

A representative of Rihanna confirmed the news of her pregnancy to The Hollywood Reporter.

During her performance she also left the zipper of her outfit open that sent social media into a frenzy whether the singer was pregnant. This was Rihanna's first live performance since 2018 and she has not released an album in about seven years. Singer Shakira wished her good luck with the Super Bowl performance on Twitter with a photo of them together.

Rihanna had previously talked about her baby son inspiring her to perform on the show, at a pre-Super Bowl press conference, “When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you can take on the world and do anything. The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. As scary as that was, because I haven’t been on stage in seven years, there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. It’s important for me to do this, this year. It’s important for representation, it’s important for my son to see that,” she said.
