In February Rihanna unexpectedly became the first pregnant woman to star in a Super Bowl halftime show. After showing off her belly during the performance, the Grammy winner confirmed to multiple new outlets that she was expecting another child. The due date has not been shared thus far.
Currently, the Fenty Beauty founder is set to star in an upcoming “Smurfs” movie, which is expected to hit theaters in 2025.
