Social media erupted when she broke the news of her pregnancy in a New York photoshoot last week.
And mother-to-be Rihanna, 33, showed off her blossoming bump in a laced-up top and low-waist slit trousers on Sunday night – her first outing since announcing the joyous news.
The Umbrella songstress, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky, ensured her appearance was nothing short of exceptional as she forewent a bra and displayed her growing stomach while stepping out for dinner in Beverly Hills.

While the A-lister may have kept to all-black attire – including a cropped bomber jacket – she didn’t keep things subtle on the makeup front as she touched up her look with a bold scarlet lipstick.
The Barbados-born star, who flashed her large underboob tattoo, framed her radiant face with a pair of black sunglasses and coiffed her tresses in chic braids, further jazzing up her look with a gold cross chain.
She boosted her height with a pair of towering stilettos as she stepped out.
It was claimed over the weekend that Rihanna is set to marry boyfriend A$AP, 33, in her native Barbados after the birth of their baby.

The source said: ‘Having a baby is something she was never focused on, but being with Rocky opened her up to the idea.’
The insider continued: ‘She’s loving all the changes to her body during pregnancy and has always celebrated pregnant women in her runway shows for Fenty.’
According to the source: ‘Everything Rihanna does, she does it her own way on her own timetable, and having a baby is no different.’
Rihanna and Rocky are ‘just like any other pair of parents-to-be. Yes, they happen to be famous but they’re just the cutest, giddiest young couple that’s expecting kids’.
Rocky is an ‘over-the-top romantic and sends her rooms full of flowers all the time. She’s never felt this way before and this relationship has changed her’.
The S&M singer apparently introduced Rocky to her father, and to other family members, during a trip to Barbados near the end of 2020.
