Rihanna chose to wear an all red costume for her show seven years later. She opened up her jacket and patted her belly as she announced her pregnancy.
Fans thought this move was a pregnancy announcement. The news was later confirmed by Rihanna's representatives.
Speaking ahead of the show, Rihanna said there was “something exhilarating” about the challenge of the performance, and that following the birth of her son she felt like she could “take on the world”:
“So as scary as that was, because I haven’t been on stage in seven years, there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all."
“And it’s important for me to do this, this year it’s important for representation and it’s important for my son to see that.”
