Rihanna shared a new update on her pregnancy on Tuesday as she gave her followers an insight into her gourmet cravings.

The 'Umbrella' singer, who revealed her second pregnancy during her Super Bowl Halftime performance on Sunday, February 12, took to her Instagram Story to share two photos of her bare baby bump as she indulged in some "drive-thru" pasta.

RiRi – who recently rocked a $1.8m baby bump accessory – appeared to be sitting barefoot in a car with her belly poking into view. Each photo showed her with a porcelain plate on her lap and two variations of pasta.

While she didn't reveal the name of the restaurant, Rihanna is said to be a huge fan of A-list hotspot Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica. Her chosen dishes to satisfy her cravings appeared to be the restaurant's gnocchi with meat sauce and spaghetti pomodoro.

During her recent interview with British Vogue, Rihanna – whose home was recently under threat – opened up about her pregnancy cravings and revealed that she is fond of eating tangerines sprinkled with salt.

"It has to be with salt and only with salt because in Barbados we take our fruits to the ocean and soak them. Trust me, it really is a thing," she said.

She has also developed a sweet tooth, adding: "I usually hate desserts, but all of a sudden you come close to me with a chocolate-covered donut and you've got my heart forever."

Discussing motherhood, the hitmaker described it as "legendary," telling the magazine that she doesn't "remember life before".

"You literally try to remember it – and there are photos of my life before – but the feeling, the desires, the things that you enjoy, everything, you just don't identify with it because you don't even allow yourself mentally to get that far, because… because it doesn't matter," she said.

Rihanna and her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, are awaiting the arrival of their second child after the singer made history with her surprise announcement as she became the first woman to perform the Halftime Show while pregnant.

She already shares a son, born back in May 2022 with 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.
