Now that we know she’s pregnant, many of us want to know Rihanna’s due date to get an idea of when we can expect to see the second mini Rih out in the world. Judging from her belly during her Super Bowl, it could be super soon.

Rihanna stunned the world with her second pregnancy reveal during her Half Time show at Super Bowl LVII. Her representatives confirmed the news to Rolling Stone that she’s expecting her second child after she rubbed her belly at the end of the historic show. On her decision to perform at the Super Bowl after she just gave birth to her first baby, she said in a press conference, “I was like, ‘You sure? I’m three months postpartum. Should I be making major decisions like this right now? I might regret this.” But Rihanna said that becoming a mom gave her the energy to take on the big event, especially with her nine-month-old son watching. “When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world — you can do anything. And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world, so as scary as that was … there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all,” she said. “It’s important for my son to see that.”

But how soon can fans expect to see the new little one? For everything we know about Rihanna’s due date, keep on reading below.

So, when is Rihanna’s due date? Rihanna’s due date is expected to be around sometime in the summer, a source confirmed to People on February 13, 2023, the day after the Super Bowl LVII. “Rihanna has so many things she is grateful for. She is ecstatic about how her show went. She felt great about performing again. She was also super excited to confirm her pregnancy,” the insider said. The source continued, “[She] wants several kids and is happy that her son with have a sibling come summer.”

Another insider told In Touch Weekly that Rihanna “kept the baby news under wraps and only told family members, her stylist and a couple of close friends until she couldn’t keep quiet about it any longer,” they said. The source went on to say that the baby is born in “late spring” and the couple is “counting down the days” until they’re able to hold their newborn.

Fans immediately went online to speculate when the “Umbrella” singer would give birth and their snooping skills might be right. Rihanna gave birth to her son on May 13, 2022, and it usually takes four to six weeks to ovulate after childbirth. It could be possible that she could have gotten pregnant right after that period and it’s estimated that she was four months pregnant when she performed.

In an interview with CBS Sports, Rihanna hinted that she would bring a guest to her Super Bowl performance. She was “thinking about bringing someone” out during her halftime performance. “I’m not sure. We’ll see,” she said, while also saying if she revealed who was going to Though she refused to name who she would be bringing to Game Night, many thought that it would be a musical guest, but her baby bump was indeed the special guest. TMZ also reported that none of her backup dancers knew that she was pregnant until the actual performance.

In true Rihanna fashion, Rihanna, debuted her first baby bump for the first time in January 2022 during a photoshoot alongside her boyfriend ASAP Rocky, in Harlem, NY. In the photos—which you can see here—the “Love on the Brain” singer wore low-rise jeans and a long pink puffer jacket, which she unbuttoned past her belly button to show off her growing bump. ASAP, for his part, wore a denim varsity jacket and leather pants, and could be seen kissing Rih on the forehead in one of the shots.

While neither Rih nor ASAP made a formal statement about the pregnancy at the time, celebrity photographer Miles Diggs subtly confirmed the news after taking the photos. Diggs took to his Instagram account to share one flick from the shoot, which zoomed in on Rihanna’s bump. He captioned the post, “SHE IS,” otherwise assuaging any and all doubts on the matter.

Before becoming expectant parents, the Fenty Beauty founder and the “Praise the Lord” rapper officially started dating in 2020. The pair, who became friends in 2013 when he opened for the U.S. dates of her Diamonds World Tour, fielded romance rumors for years prior to this. Speculation about their relationship status reached a fever pitch following the “Umbrella” singer’s split from her previous boyfriend, billionaire Hassan Jameel, in January 2020 after three years of dating. Months later, People reported that Rih and ASAP were dating—but it wasn’t until the following year that the couple publicly confirmed their relationship.

In May 2021, ASAP was the one to discuss their relationship for the first time in an interview with GQ for their June/July 2021 issue. The “1Train” rapper openly gushed about his “lady,” calling her “the love of my life” during the interview. “[It’s] so much better when you got the one,” he also told the magazine at the time. “She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She’s the one.”

During his chat with GQ, the “Babushka Boi” rapper also hinted at his plans for starting a family with Rih. When asked about his thoughts on fatherhood, ASAP replied, “If that’s in my destiny, absolutely.” While he didn’t mention the Fenty founder outright, ASAP did reflect on what kind of dad he would be—and how he imagined his future child would turn out. “I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad,” he said. “I would have a very fly child. Very.”

Prior to Rih and ASAP’s pregnancy announcement, the pair had fans speculating they were expecting a baby for months. The rumors took off in September 2021, when Rih and ASAP attended the Met Gala together in New York City. The pair were among the last guests to arrive at the function, and notably, Rih wore an oversized, custom-made gown by Balenciaga. While some fans didn’t make much of the style choice at the time, in hindsight, it’s possible that Rih may have chosen the dramatic ensemble for the way it camouflaged a growing baby bump.

The following month, Rihanna sparked pregnancy rumors once again when she visited her homeland of Barbados, where she was honored as her country’s National Hero. During the award ceremony, Rih wore an orange slip dress that clung to her waist. Interestingly, Rihanna held her hands around her midsection and noticeably positioned her stomach out of view whenever she had the chance. Now, it’s clear that Rih was indeed pregnant at the time! Of course, even due dates can sometimes differ from when little ones actually decide to enter the world; so we’ll really just have to wait and see.
