Rihanna’s friend A$AP Rocky is just as much of a fan as the rest of us!

During her Super Bowl halftime performance on Sunday, the 34-year-old “Lift Me Up” singer showed off her growing baby bump during a surprise reveal of her pregnancy.

A$AP Rocky — with whom she already shares a 9-month-old son — proudly cheered from the sidelines in a video shared by the NFL on Twitter.
