Rihanna is the new queen of halftime shows at the Super Bowl. But 2023 will also go down in history for her boyfriend, rapper A$AP Rocky: Because no one cheered on his girlfriend better than he did from the auditorium.
Stages floating in the air, dancers delivering perfect choreography, and in the middle of it all, a completely red-clad Rihanna, who not only performed the greatest hits of her career in an almost 13-minute medley, but also announced that she was pregnant a second time. The "Diamonds" singer didn't have to say much, because the audience stared spellbound at her clear baby bump.
A$AP Rocky celebrates his girlfriend Rihanna's appearance at Super Bowl 2023 like no other.
The father of her child, Rakim Mayers or better known as: A$AP Rocky, cheered Rihanna on from the audience area. He was watching the NFL final between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs with fellow musician Rick Ross. Then, for Rihanna's halftime show, the 34-year-old rapper was seen on the field cheering loudly and euphorically for his pregnant girlfriend. He recorded Rihanna's spectacular stage performance on his cell phone – and simply outed himself as the singer's biggest fan.
As recently as January 2023, A$AP Rocky proudly declared on the "Apple Music 1" radio show: "I'm happy that my lady of hearts is back doing music and everything else. It's just amazing," the rap star gushed about his girlfriend Rihanna. "The Super Bowl is huge, and being as creative as she is, she's going to really deliver. I'm excited. I'm more excited than anyone, honestly." Awww, and then they always say rappers are all super-tough? A$AP Rocky revealed himself as Rihanna's most ardent admirer in the radio interview and at Super Bowl 2023.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky become parents for the second time
The fact that the two are expecting a second child together was the biggest surprise at the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show, as Rihanna and A$AP Rocky became parents to a son in May 2022. While the "Diamonds" singer kept smiling happily into the camera and rubbing her belly, her boyfriend cheered her on the lawn.
After the Golden Globes and the 2023 Super Bowl, fans can look forward to the couple's next appearance (and Rihanna's iconic pregnancy looks!) at the 2023 Oscars at the latest.
