Rihanna has fuelled widespread speculation that she is pregnant. Fans went wild after the singer, 31, stated she was ‘going to give birth to a black woman’ during an interview at the Diamond Ball on Thursday night in New York City.
The star’s comments during a conversation on the excellence of black women prompted intense division on social media, with some congratulating her on the news, while others expressed their disappointment that they weren’t the ‘father of her unborn child.’
Rihanna, who is in a relationship with billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel, revealed in a red carpet interview to Essence: ‘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.
‘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.’
And while Rihanna hasn’t confirmed any pregnancy news herself, it didn’t stop fans taking to Twitter with their theories:
