Rihanna will perform at the 2023 Oscars, four weeks after revealing she is expecting her second baby with A$AP Rocky.

The singer — who shared her pregnancy news with the world at the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show — will perform during the awards ceremony on March 12 singing the Oscar-nominated song "Lift Me Up" from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The singer made her long-awaited comeback at the 57th Super Bowl, which many fans cheekily claimed was really the "Rihanna concert," but the biggest surprise was when the global superstar cradled a growing baby bump throughout her supercharged performance.

The 35-year-old is the first woman to perform the Super Bowl Halftime Show while pregnant.

A rep for the Fenty founder confirmed 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.

Although the star has shared a few rare glimpses of her little one on social media, and a recent British Vogue cover, the "Diamonds" songstress has yet to confirm her son's name.

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.
