The 2020 British Fashion Awards airs tonight, and while this year's show will be all-digital, we can't help but think back to last year's British Fashion Awards, where Rihanna was yet again plagued by pregnancy rumors because of her red carpet dress.  

Rihanna is no stranger to pregnancy rumors, and with reports that the Fenty Beauty founder is now dating A$AP Rocky, the rumors are more prevelant than ever.

Is Rihanna pregnant?

Back in October 2019, Rihanna was once again dogged by pregnancy rumors.

Speculation arose about her bun-in-the-oven state when she said, "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" in an interview.

Apparently, that's all someone needs to say to make people think that they're pregnant because the word caught on like wildfire.

At the time, she shut down the rumors in an interview with Vogue, in which she joked that she "looked forward to all the pregnancy rumors" once the interview went live. 

She had a "suspicious bump" at the British Fashion Awards in 2019.

The 31-year-old singer was spotted on the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards in 2019. At that time, she sported a beautiful green dress with a sheer shirt over it.

The "bump" in the skirt led people to speculate that Rihanna might be pregnant.

And it didn't help that she held her purse over her stomach, but the fact that she seemingly "covered up" her stomach doesn't necessarily mean she's preggo.

Rihanna's fans want her to get pregnant by A$AP Rocky.

The head of the A$AP Mob of rappers (that also includes A$AP Ferg) escorted Rihanna down the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards last year, and that led to the fandom going aflutter with the thought that there just might be a future with these two!

And from the looks of it, fans may have gotten what they wished for — a Rihanna and A$AP Rocky relationship, that is.

After splitting from her billionaire ex-boyfriend Hassan Jameel in January this year, it was rumored that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky had started dating. At the time, Rihanna insisted that she was single; however, in Dec. of 2020, multiple outlets reported that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were in fact, an item.

Rihanna said she doesn't get offended by pregnancy rumors.

Many women, for a variety of reasons, get offended by the insinuation that they may be pregnant.

Rihanna, however, isn't one of those women, because she "secretly wishes the rumors were true." 

She also said that while it's "not everybody's dream" to be a mother, it's definitely hers, so "it's fine." 

There were pregnancy rumors after the 2019 Diamond Ball, too.

Rihanna held her annual Diamond Ball in 2019, then took a break from the spotlight a little.

She subsequently came back and apologized to her fans for being "MIA," but insisted it was because she was trying to find balance in her life, and trying to strike up the balance between work life and personal life. That, too, led to speculation that she was, in fact, pregnant.

Rihanna said that she was "taking a break" after 2019 — because she was "overwhelmed." (She made the comment in an Instagram post you can check out above). That, too, led to speculation that she was pregnant.
