Rihanna's Halftime Performance Was Amazing, But It Was Her Baby Bump That Stole the Show

Rihanna‘s highly-anticipated Super Bowl halftime show featured a surprise guest who no one saw coming. The superstar took to a stage floating high above the crowd and cradled her baby bump in perhaps the most-seen pregnancy announcement of all time. Around 28.5 million households (many of which were likely hosting parties) watched her performance live, and you better believe we will be watching it again and again on YouTube.

Sports reporter Ashley Washburn tweeted, “Rihanna announcing her pregnancy was not on my #SuperBowlLVII bingo card, but I am SO here for it,” and we could not agree more.

The internet hype only increased from there.

“Rihanna for MVP (most valuable pregnancy),” said one tweet.

“…pregnancy announcement, fenty promo, all in one. rihanna is the QUEEN,” said another.

The Fenty founder — who took a moment mid-show to “fix her makeup” like the brilliant business woman she is — wore a red, monochromatic look, and the unzipped jumpsuit perfectly accentuated her growing bump. When she said she might have someone join her on stage, no one expected it to be her second child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky. Last May, the couple welcomed a baby boy. His name is still under wraps, but now we can start calling him Big Bro!
