A rep for Rihanna confirmed the pregnancy news to PEOPLE Sunday night.

The singer had hinted at her big surprise before she took the stage at Super Bowl.

Speaking to CBS Sports, Rihanna said she was "thinking about bringing someone" out during her halftime performance. However, the "Diamonds" singer managed to sidetrack everyone, giving the assumption she was talking about a surprise musical guest.

"I'm not sure. We'll see," she teased while speaking with the outlet.

She also joked that "it wouldn't be a surprise" if she spoiled who she was considering sharing the stage with on Sunday.

The Grammy winner and Rocky welcomed their first child, a son, in May 2022.

Rihanna first revealed in January 2022 that she was expecting her first child with Rocky, 34. After she was photographed debuting her baby bump in New York City, a source told PEOPLE that Rihanna was "excited to be a mom" and "couldn't be happier."

"Everything Rihanna does, she does it her own way on her own timetable, and having a baby is no different," the source said, adding that the couple were over the moon about their baby on the way.
