Rihanna, pregnant with second child, performs hits at Super Bowl

Rihanna made her long-awaited return to the stage at the Super Bowl with a career-spanning medley of pop bangers, but it was her baby bump that dominated the conversation

The megastar appeared in the stadium midair on a floating stage, donning a clingy, all-red ensemble featuring a molded bustier - and a belt below what many viewers deduced was another mini RiRi in the making

Representatives for the singer confirmed the speculation to trade magazines Rolling Stone and The Hollywood Reporter: Rihanna is pregnant with her second child

The 34-year-old welcomed her first child, a son, with rapper A$AP Rocky in May

Musically speaking, fans who hoped for some fresh tracks were disappointed: Rihanna's night on the world's biggest stage offered a nostalgia tour of hits past

She delivered her club smashes including Where Have You Been to Only Girl (In the World) and the time-tested We Found Love

Rude Boy, Bitch Better Have My Money, Work and All of the Lights were also on the setlist, as a sea of dancers performed stunning acrobatics

Wild Thoughts, Run This Town and, of course, Umbrella and Diamonds rounded out the show

She did not, as many stars do, bring out any guest artists, commanding the stage all on her own

The evening marked a reversal after Rihanna had previously turned down the gig in protest of the National Football League's handling of race issues

But in accepting the coveted slot this time around, the Barbados-born singer said it was "important for representation

" "It's important for my son to see this

" Since releasing Anti in early 2016, Robyn Rihanna Fenty has taken a break from recording but has by no means taken it easy: she's become a billionaire, parlaying her music achievements into successful makeup, lingerie and high-fashion brands

Since her last album Rihanna has performed occasional features and more recently recorded music for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack

But the album she's been teasing for years remains the stuff of myth - and seemed it would stay so awhile longer
