Who was the surprise guest at the Super Bowl Halftime show with Rihanna?

Spoiler alert: It was certainly a surprise!

While Rihanna certainly wowed the crowd in Phoenix at Super Bowl 57 between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles, she also surprised the crowd in another way:

It was just Robyn Rihanna Fenty by herself out there, with no guest performances or other artists despite her long catalog and dozens of collaborations over her two decades as a recording star.

But she did certainly bring a special guest:

Congrats to Rihanna, who used the halftime show to announce that she’s pregnant with her second child. She and A$AP Rocky had their first child, a son, in May of 2022.

We’ll look to hear from RiRi later about why she chose to go this route for her second child, but all the best to the Mom-to-be! She still captivated the crowd and the audience across the world as well.
