Rihanna broke the internet earlier this year after revealing her blossoming baby bump during her iconic Super Bowl Halftime Show performance.
However, the superstar songstress has now let slip that the viral pregnancy reveal was completely unplanned and was actually a wardrobe snafu caused by her desire to hide her growing belly.
Rihanna spoke about the moments leading up to her Super Bowl performance during the launch event for the Fenty x Puma Creeper Phatty in Los Angeles earlier this week.
“Here’s the thing — I did what I have to do, right?” she explained. “My jumper couldn’t zip up. No one knew I was pregnant — I just told my stylist, ‘Make sure it’s stretchy.’”
However, once she climbed into the red jumpsuit, the zipper wouldn’t fasten all the way up. It reached the bottom of her bump and refused to budge. “The zip, it just stopped right there,” she added. “So it had to be what it had to be!”
While Rihanna reportedly said her family was complete after welcoming her second child with A$AP Rocky earlier this year, the singer is yearning to hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet again, girl’s feet, that is.
The couple had their first son, RZA, in May 2022 before the arrival of their second boy, Riot Rose, in August.
When E! News asked if there was anything she couldn’t do the music and business mogul quipped, “So far, have daughters. I’m batting at 75 percent for a boy next time. So, we’ll just keep our fingers crossed.”
