The Umbrella singer spoke to Elle to promote the news that her Fenty Beauty line is being rolled out across Ulta Beauty’s full network of stores, but of course, talk turned to her pregnancy.

Talking about how her makeup routine has been adjusted, she explained: "I just focused a lot on moisturising and on contouring. The face gets a little round and chubby. The nose starts to spread. Everything is a challenge, from getting dressed and how you're going to do your makeup. But I like challenges."

On the topic of parenting advice, Rihanna confesses that she's received "a lot of advice," just like many mums-to-be.

She added: "Probably the best advice is to sleep now because I won't get much later. I need to work on that before it's a thing of the past." The perfect excuse to snooze the alarm!

The couple are expecting their first child together

We can't wait for Rihanna to welcome her first baby into the world, and according to a 2020 interview she gave, there could be other baby news to follow as the star would like a big family.

The We Found Love songstress was previously quizzed by Vogue on where she sees herself in 10 years. Her response was very telling.

"Ten years? I'll be 42! I'll be ancient," replied the star. "I'll have kids – three or four of 'em."

The mum-to-be also told Extra in the past: "It's not necessarily everyone's dream to be a mom ... but it's mine."
