Rihanna shows off blossoming baby bump at Oscars after Super Bowl pregnancy reveal

Rihanna showed off her blossoming baby bump as she walked the champagne carpet at the 2023 Oscars this evening.

The pregnant star, 35, shocked fans when she revealed her second pregnancy at the Super Bowl last month, just months on from welcoming her first child into the world with beau A$AP Rocky.

Rihanna, whose song Lift Me Up is up for an Oscar tonight, revolutionised maternity style when expecting her first child last year, and the mega star is continuing to rock some iconic looks with her second pregnancy.

Taking to the champagne carpet outside the Dolby Theatre this evening, the mum-of-one rocked an Alaïa ensemble, composed of a dark brown leather bra and maxi skirt set layered over a matching sheer mesh turtleneck top.

The Umbrella singer completed her look with Moussaieff High Jewellery and strappy heels giving her height a boost.

She kept her makeup simple, with a red lip and subtle touches to her eyes, and wore her black hair off her face in a casual spiky up-do.

Rihanna's second pregnancy became public knowledge last month, as she performed the halftime show at the Super Bowl in February.

The songstress put on an impressive display and showcased a sweet baby bump in a stunning red outfit during the break in the huge showdown between Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs at the State Farm Stadium.

It was RiRi's first time performing live on TV in five years as she followed the likes of Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and last year's show of Dre Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Mary J Blige to be watched by millions of people across the world.

But the star's huge personal news took focus as she performed on a suspended stage on February 13, with fans rushing to social media to speculate if she was pregnant.

One Twitter user wrote: "Feel like Rihanna revealed her pregnancy like Beyonce did... the whole revealing the area then going ahead to rub the belly, yup."

And another seemingly agreed, saying: "Ok so Rihanna is in fact pregnant. OMG she was literally mothering."

And the news was confirmed to Mirror by her representatives shortly after her performance.

It comes just nine months after she welcomed her first child with A$AP Rocky.

Rihanna will battle it out with Lady Gaga later this evening to take home an award, with the chart-topping star earning her first Oscar nomination in the Best Original Song category thanks to her track for the Best Panter: Wakanda Forever feature.

Lady Gaga's "Hold My Hand" from Top Gun: Maverick, "This Is a Life" from Everything Everywhere All at Once, "Naatu Naatu" from RRR, and "Applause" from Tell It like a Woman make up the rest of the nominations.
