Rihanna has been honest about her show-stopping Super Bowl performance and pregnancy announcement. The singer dug deep into the opening show, leaving fans astounded as she was heavily pregnant. But it was not in the memo.

Rihanna’s Super Bowl Pregnancy Announcement Was not Part of the Deal

Looking back at this year’s Super Bowl show, fans would agree that Rihanna put in much effort. The singer, who at the time already had a toddler son, RZA, was pregnant with her second son, and no one knew until she was on stage. While her energy seemed revitalizing, and it was an awesome display of her talent, the pregnancy announcement was not in the works, as revealed in an interview with Access Hollywood.

During her red carpet walk, Rihanna settled into a conversation with one of Access Hollywood‘s interviewers. When asked about the moment, she explained that her stylist got the word to make her outfit convenient. Despite the effort, the stretchy material wouldn’t budge, and she could not hide herself from the world.

In her words:

“Here’s the thing. I did what I had to do, right? My jumper couldn’t zip up. No one knew I was pregnant. I just told my stylist, ‘Make sure it’s stretchy. So the undergarment was stretchy and this was baggy, but you know, the zip. It just stopped right there! So it had to be what it had to be.”

It did not matter what the initial plan was; Rihanna knew how to put on quite the display while sharing her pregnancy announcement. She left the zipper down while rubbing her baby bump.
