The singer, 34, who has been proudly showcased her bump in an array of scantily-clad looks, said she refuses to be ‘ashamed’ of her figure when it is doing ‘incredible things,’ as she graced the cover of Vogue’s May 2022 issue.

Discussing her ever-daring sense of style in her pregnancy, Rihanna said: ‘I’m hoping that we were able to redefine what’s considered ‘decent’ for pregnant women. 

‘My body is doing incredible things right now, and I’m not going to be ashamed of that. This time should feel celebratory. Because why should you be hiding your pregnancy?’

The star added she wanted to change the typical styles that women opt for during their pregnancy, adding: ‘When I found out I was pregnant, I thought to myself, There’s no way I’m going to go shopping in no maternity aisle.

‘I’m sorry – it’s too much fun to get dressed up. I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing.’

Since revealing her pregnancy, Rihanna has been proudly showing off her bump in a range of revealing outfits, including a daring sheer black negligee dress at the Paris Fashion Week Dior show.

Rihanna started dating A$AP Rocky in 2020, though they had been linked back as far back as 2013 when he opened for her on the Diamonds World Tour. 

The nine-time Grammy winner has yet to confirm the sex of her baby, however, the Fenty Beauty founder previously purchased a tiny orange ruffle dress at Target, which led many of her fans to speculate she’s expecting a girl.

The billionaire recently opened up about her pregnancy and motherhood while launching her Fenty Beauty line at ULTA Beauty. 

She told Elle she’s in the ‘where you wake up and you’re like, oh, do I have to get dressed?’ stage, adding: ‘There’s a pregnancy glow. There’s also those days, girl.’

The singer added, ‘Especially in the third trimester, makeup for sure helps you feel like a real person. I just focused a lot on moisturising and on contouring.’

She reflected: ‘The face gets a little round and chubby. The nose starts to spread. Everything is a challenge, from getting dressed and how you’re going to do your makeup. But I like challenges. I like things that force me to be creative and create in new ways. And with beauty, there’s so much that you can do.’ 

 Happy: She added: ‘I’m sorry – it’s too much fun to get dressed up. I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing’

The star also previously revealed she is ‘really into pushing the idea of sexy’ as a mother-to-be.

She told Refinery29: ‘Right now I’m really into pushing the idea of sexy. When women get pregnant, society tends to make it feel like you hide, hide your sexy, and that you’re not sexy right now [but] you’ll get back there and I don’t believe in that s***.

‘So I’m trying stuff that I might not have even had the confidence to try before I was pregnant. The strappiest, the thinnest, and the more cut-outs the better for me.’

She went on to say she hopes her Savage x Fenty lingerie line allows all of her customers to feel sexy, revealing it was important to her that no one feels excluded.

Vogue’s May 2022 issue is available on newsstands nationwide on April 26th.
