Rihanna showing off her bare baby bump has to be one of the biggest fashion statements of 2022…
Dripping in jewellery, vintage Chanel and an unmistakable glow – thanks to Fenty Beauty no doubt – Riri’s unborn baby was the perfect accessory to her high-fashion pregnancy announcement last week.
But not everyone is a fan of the bare belly look. Some followers have even told the pop star to “cover up”.
RIHANNA SHOWS OFF HER BARE BELLY
Rihanna made her first public appearance on Monday in Los Angeles since announcing her pregnancy last week.
And as expected, the star made quite the entrance! Donning a risque black lace-up top, the hitmaker went braless as she showed off her cleavage and bare baby bump.
Rihanna coupled the all-black look with snazzy shades, skintight leggings and sexy stilettos. To beat the winter chill, she wore a fur-trimmed coat and headscarf.
The mom-to-be’s fashion choices were widely praised by fans who touted her as a “sexy, cool mom”.
But sprinkled among the compliments was criticism of the star baring her belly – especially in the cold, winter season
A number of tweeps urged Rihanna to “cover up” and “protect” her baby from “catching a cold”.
“Rihanna cover up ya damn belly before that damn baby catch a cold”
“Rihanna is stressing out the Jamaican granny in me. Cover up the belly before the baby catch a cold”
“Rihanna you could’ve gotten warm and comfortable with a gown or dress. IT IS COLD! That is not appropriate!”
“I know her baby cold asf! WHERE ARE HER CLOTHES?”
“Rihanna walking around with her belly out like it ain’t cold as s*** outside”
“I need Rihanna to stop exposing her belly in the winter. That baby is cold!”
According to medical journals, colds are common during pregnancy and do not pose a serious threat to either mom or baby. Pregnant women are also encouraged to take a flu jab to boost their immune systems.
CELEBS WHO SHOWED OFF THEIR BABY BUMPS
Rihanna is not the first and certainly not the last celebrity to parade her pregnant belly for the public.
A number of stars have proudly showed off their bare bumps whilst out and about.
In addition, many stars have opted for nude pregnancy photoshoots to celebrate their new bundles of joy
