Rihanna shares adorable new pics of baby son and jokes about his reaction to missing Oscars

Rihanna has shared a video of her son – whose name has not been announced publicly – watching the music video for Lift Me Up ahead of her highly-anticipated performance at the Oscars this Sunday.

The pop superstar, 35, will perform her Academy Award-nominated song, written for Marvel’s blockbuster sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, at the ceremony on 12 March at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Her performance will come exactly one month after her electrifying Super Bowl halftime show – where RiRi revealed her surprise second pregnancy.

On Sunday, the singer shared a close-up photograph of her son’s face, seemingly upset.

She captioned the Instagram post: “My son when he found out his sibling is going to the Oscars and not him @theacademy #oscarnominee #oscarperformancein1week.”

She added: “Swipe for tb of my fat man.”

Rihanna shared a short clip of the infant watching her music video for Lift Me Up on a laptop as he sat on her lap at a dining room table.

The song picked up a nod for best original song and will go up against tracks including Lady Gaga’s Hold My Hand from Top Gun: Maverick.

The nomination marks the first time Rihanna has been shortlisted for an Academy Award.

Reacting to the adorable snaps, dad A$AP Rocky wrote: “MR.MAYERS.”

“That little face,” said model Ashley Graham as Cara Delevingne reiterated: “That face.”

Rihanna returned to the world of music on one of the biggest stages in the world, the halftime show at the Super Bowl.

The astonishing performance saw the Umbrella singer hoisted into the air on swinging platforms as she was flanked by dancers in white puffer coats.

American Sign Language interpreter Justina Miles was also featured in the show and applauded on social media for her animated approach to signing along to the singer’s biggest hits.

Following the performance, which Rihanna was not paid for due to an old rule, the Fenty beauty visionary was showered in champagne and congratulated by the likes of Adele.

The mum of one, soon to be two, further opened up about the performance and her return to music as Vogue’s March cover star.

One notable moment in the interview saw the Disturbia singer describe her son's birth as “beautiful” and reveal that mornings are her favourite as she loves to see her son’s “little wake-up face.”

In another candid moment that pulled back the curtain on her relationship, Rihanna said “we’re best friends with a baby.”

"I’m literally the girl trying to get into the boys club, waiting for my turn. He is obsessed with his father," she explained, before calling their bond "undeniable."
