Rihanna is officially back... and with another baby on the way! The singer made her long-awaited comeback at the 57th Super Bowl, which many fans of the star were cheekily claiming was really the "Rihanna concert." 

The biggest surprise? The global superstar cradled a growing baby bump throughout her supercharged performance, making her the first woman to perform the Super Bowl Halftime Show while pregnant.

A rep for the star confirmed to People she is expecting baby number two. She already shares a son, born back in May 2022 with partner A$AP Rocky. The couple were first romantically linked in the summer of 2020, though the rapper had been expressing interest in his now girlfriend for several years.

For her halftime performance, the Barbados-born multi-hyphenate sang some of her most popular and beloved songs from her decades-long career. Singing from a floating stage, some of her song selections included Rude Boy, Work, We Found Love, Wild Thoughts, Kanye West's All of the Lights, Umbrella, and more.

She ended the night floating away on her personal stage while fireworks were launched behind her as she sang Diamondsduring which she notably cradled her belly as she sang "I'm alive" on refrain.

The game has been quite momentous for both teams from the start, not only as fans see the first time in NFL history two Black quarterbacks – Jalen Hurts is the Eagles' QB and Patrick Mahomes the Chiefs' – oppose one another, but also brothers Jason and Travis Kelce compete against each other as well.

Rihanna took the stage for herself

The night was full of lots of celebrity sightings, from Rihanna's performance, to all of the commercials, and the crowd itself.

In between the game, Alicia Silverstone reprised her role as Clueless' Cher Horowitz for a Rakuten commercial, Ben Affleck had his dreams come true with an ad for Dunkin' Donuts after years of viral moments with the Boston-loved brand, Steve Martin starred in a commercial for Pepsi, and Nick Jonas advocated for fellow diabetes patients in an ad for Dexcom.
