'Work' Singer Rihanna Sparks Pregnancy Rumors after Diamond Ball Performance Clip in a Black Dress
The weekend tweets buzzed over Rihanna's alleged pregnancy after appearing with a belly bump and an interview that seemed to suggest she was. A source revealed the truth.
A recent appearance of Rihanna is causing pregnancy rumors to float. Apart from a bump that many took notice of, she said in an interview that she was “going to give birth to a Black woman.”
WHY FANS THINK SHE'S PREGNANT
Rihanna stunned in a predominantly black outfit at the 5th Annual Diamond Ball for the benefit of her Clara Lionel Foundation.
The tight-fitting Givenchy dress hugged her figure and showcased her curves for all to see. But one particular curve caught fans’ attention, a slight bump in her midsection that has now caused a stir.
According to rumor mongers, the singer is, possibly, with child judging from the bulge that revealed itself while performing for the audience.
There were pregnancy rumors in 2018 but the world's wealthiest female musician simply laughed it off as a “fat day.”

And while that was enough to get the rumor mill going, her interview ahead of the event added more fuel.
Speaking to Essence, the 31-year-old entrepreneur dished about being a Black woman and what that meant, suggesting she may also be carrying a child.
“I’m a black woman. I came from a black woman, who came from a black woman, who came from a black woman and I’m going to give birth to a black woman,” she said and added,
“My mother is an incredible example of how to fight through obstacles in life. I’m sure her mom taught her that and that’s how I’m going to be. We are impeccable, we’re special, we’re special and the world is going to have to deal with that.”
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
Leave it to fans to put two and two together and spin a story about her pregnancy. Tweets were certain she was.
“Rihanna is pregnant. This is a lot to take in right now.”
“Yeah. That looks like a bump to me. Rihanna… I am the father. We keeping it, BAY BEE.”
"Can’t believe Rihanna is pregnant omg imagine having her as your mom……a blessing.”
"Rihanna’s back and preggy? Baby fenty loading.”
However, a source for TMZ revealed these rumors will remain as such because the singer is not pregnant.
WHY WE WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED IF THE SINGER WAS PREGNANT
In June, Rihanna expressed her intentions to become a mother someday telling her “Ocean’s 8” co-star, Sarah Paulson in a feature on Interview Magazine that she wanted to be a mom “more than anything in life.”
She's currently in a relationship with Saudi Arabian billionaire Hassan Jameel so it wouldn’t come as a shock if she was pregnant after dating for two years.
This time around, we’re certain that the rumors will stay as rumors unless the singer herself confirms it.
What we also know for sure is she’ll be an excellent mother when the time comes.
“I’m not gonna be able to take my eyes off my kid,” she told Vogue last year. “I know that already about myself. They’re going to have to force me to hire a nanny.”
