Rihanna's Super Bowl performance earlier this year was a triumph, not only because she took the stage for the first time in a long time, but also because she announced her second pregnancy on stage. This news caused a huge resonance in the media and social networks, but, according to the singer herself, this was not planned.
"I just did what I had to do, but the zipper on my overalls wouldn't fasten. Nobody knew that I was pregnant. I just told my stylist, "Make sure the clothes are stretchy." It was stretchy, and this onesie was baggy, but, you know, the zipper. It just didn't zip up. So what had to happen happened,” she said in an interview with Access Hollywood. At the performance, the singer appeared in a red jumpsuit, which was unbuttoned, showing off her belly.
News about Rihanna's pregnancy caused a big stir: many were even upset, because they were expecting an announcement at the performance about the singer's new album, which under such circumstances should not be expected in the near future, and the most active fans even began to write offensive comments on Instagram* of Rihanna's lover A$AP Rocky.
Rihanna herself says that she fell in love with her boyfriend in a new way after seeing what kind of father he became. "I loved him differently as a father. It's very exciting: you think: “Wow.” How strong he is, how wonderful, patient, loving.” And my kids are literally obsessed with him, and I'm just a background."
Rihanna's second son was born this summer, and her eldest was born in May last year. The singer's eldest son is named RZA Athelston Mayers, a tribute to the 54-year-old producer and rapper RZA, leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and close friend of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky. Junior is named Riot Rose Myers, which may be a reference to A$AP Rocky's recent song "Riot."
