Rihanna has returned to the long-awaited Super Bowl stage with a career-long medley of pop artists, but it’s her pregnant belly that dominates the conversation.

The superstar appeared in midair of the stadium on a floating stage, wearing a tight, all-red uniform that featured a molded bra — and a belt underneath that many viewers deduced was a mini RiRi another is being produced.

The singer’s rep confirmed the rumors to Rolling Stone and The Hollywood Reporter: Rihanna is pregnant with her second child.

The 34-year-old welcomed her first child, a son, with rapper A$AP Rocky in May.

Musically, fans hoping for some new music were disappointed: Rihanna’s night on the world’s biggest stage offered a nostalgic tour of bygone hits.

She has brought hits to her club, including “Where Have You Been” to “Only Girl (In the World)” and the time-tested “We Found Love.”

“Rude Boy,” “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “Work” and “All of the Lights” were also on the set list, as a sea of ​​dancers performed stunning acrobatics.

“Wild Thoughts” “Run This Town” and of course, “Umbrella” and “Diamonds” finished the show.

She doesn’t put on any guest artists like many stars, but directs the stage herself.

The evening marked a reversal after Rihanna had previously turned down the gig in protest at the National Football League’s handling of racial issues.

But in accepting the coveted position this time, the Barbados-born singer said it’s “important for representation.”

“It’s important for my son to see this.”

Since the release of “Anti” in early 2016, Robyn Rihanna Fenty has taken a break from recording but it hasn’t been easy: she’s become a billionaire, betting her musical achievements on brands. successful makeup, lingerie and high-fashion brands.

Since her last album, Rihanna has occasionally performed features and more recently recorded music for the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” soundtrack.

But the album she’s been teasing for years is still legendary – and it looks like it’ll be around for much longer.
