Arguably the most show-stopping part of Rihanna‘s Super Bowl Halftime Show earlier this year was her unexpected baby bump reveal, announcing to the world that she was pregnant with her second child. But according to the 35-year-old singer-mogul, the moment was completely unplanned.

“Here’s the thing — I do what I have to do, right?” she told Access Hollywood at her recent Fenty x Puma event in Los Angeles. “My jumper couldn’t zip up. No one knew I was pregnant — I just told my stylist, ‘Make sure it’s stretchy.’”

Come game day, and the “Umbrella” singer’s red jumpsuit zipper wouldn’t even move past her belly — much less cover the bump. “The zip, it just stopped right there,” she said, laughing. “So it had to be what it had to be!”

The Fenty Beauty founder give birth to Riot Rose, her second child with rapper A$AP Rocky, in August. His big brother was born just the year before, with Ri and Rocky welcoming baby RZA in May 2022.

“I loved him differently as a dad,” the “Rude Boy” musician told the outlet of her partner. “It’s a turn-on, it’s just like, wow. What a leader, what a great, patient loving — my kids are obsessed with him. I’m just a background, like I’m an extra.”

Speaking of baby boys, Ri joked that between fashion, beauty, music and business, there is actually one thing she can’t seem to get the hang of: “So far, have daughters,” she quipped to E! News on the Fenty x Puma red carpet.

“I’m batting at a 75% for a boy next time, so we’ll just keep our fingers crossed.”
