Rihanna, the “Diamonds” singer and fashion icon, announced earlier this year that she is expecting her second child with rapper A$AP Rocky. The reveal of her massive baby bulge took place on one of the world’s largest platforms, during the Super Bowl 2023 halftime performance.
Rihanna donned a bright red, unzipped jumpsuit over a skin-tight body suit that displayed her bump, which she held between sets, while performing a 12-minute performance that included some of her greatest singles, including “Umbrella,” “B—h Better Have My Money,” and “We Found Love.”
Rihanna previously told CBS’s Nate Burleson in an interview for her Super Bowl performance that she has a surprise planned.
Since her Super Bowl performance, the Barbadian-born artist and businesswoman has been seen wearing ghetto-glam maternity attire, such as crop tops and lacy baby dolls, that display her growing belly to the public.
The beauty and fashion star, who owns the cosmetics brand Fenty Beauty, lingerie brand Savage X Fenty, and Fenty Skin under the luxury fashion business LVMH (Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton), came under criticism for violating conventional maternity clothing norms and blinging her baby belly with chains and jewelry.
Readers gave their opinions on Rihanna’s dress, which the majority feels is unattractive, by comparing her daring fashions to the staid outfits of other celebrity parents.
One reviewer describes her as “motherhood trashy.” This is NOT classy; it is vulgar and attention-seeking narcissism on full display,” one person commented, while another added, “Well, to me, one seems like she’s pleased to be pregnant and (grateful), while the other simply looks like she’s showing u how she got pregnant.” Just a thought. “I said what I said, and you knew you were thinking it!”
“Could it be that they just have different styles…not one is better than the other just different,” one reader defended Rihanna. Stop putting women against one another in a race that nobody of them selected.”
Fans of Rihanna know she’s brave when it comes to her attention-grabbing looks, which range from tracksuits with stilettos to puffer coats with thigh-high boots to a spectacular Swarovski crystal studded gown. At this year’s Met Gala, she donned a stunning white Valentino gown with a 16-foot train and an embroidered white flower cape. She attended the Met Gala in 2015 wearing a gorgeous sunny yellow gown, which Vogue claims “will go down in history as one of the best looks the event has ever witnessed.”
Rihanna discusses her statement-making methods during her first pregnancy in an interview with ET’s Rachel Smith. She said that it’s going to be a long nine to ten months. One must have fun. She is trying to have as much fun as possible. And, one understand, fashion is one of her favourite things, so they’re challenging what it implies to be pregnant and maternal It can get unpleasant at times, she said, so one can dress the part and pretend.
Rihanna’s second child has received very little attention. We still don’t have a projected birth date as of May 2023, but considering the size of her baby belly, it’s reasonable to guess the kid will come in 2023.
When comparing her first and second pregnancies, Rihanna said that it’s so different from the first one. There are no desires. There was a lot of nausea. Everything is new to her, but she is loving it. She is in a nice mood and is feeling energized.
The pair is cunning in keeping intimate information hidden from the general public. In fact, we didn’t know the name of her first child until May 10, 2023, when the Daily Mail did some digging and found a copy of the birth certificate. RZA Athelston Mayers is the name of the soon-to-be big brother, who will be one on May 13, 2023. According to reports, the name RZA (pronounced Rizza) is in honor of RZA, the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan, an American hip hop group founded on Staten Island in 1992.
Rihanna exclaimed, “I’m in love” with her first child in early May, admitting she is “obsessed, and I don’t even feel guilty about it.”
