American superstar singer Rihanna set the social media abuzz on Friday with her comment on motherhood at her 5th annual Diamond Ball on Thursday night.
In a red carpet chat with Essence Magazine before the event, the superstar had spoken about giving birth to a black woman, leaving fans in a puzzle.
Fans became more worried and concluded the singer is pregnant after spotting what looked like a ‘baby bump’ during her performance later that night at the fifth annual Diamond Ball.
That was how the gossip mill got spinning since Thursday night.
She told Essence in the now-viral interview:
“I’m a black woman. I come 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.”
“That’s who I am. It’s the core of who I am in spirit and in DNA. And I always stand up for what I believe in and who I love and who I know, who I respect.”
And that one mention about giving birth has sent social media into an absolute frenzy, with fans now believing the 31-year-old singer subtly confirmed she’s pregnant with her first child.
The speculation has positioned Rihanna at the top spot of Twitter trend list across the world.
