Rihanna celebrates motherhood with daring topless maternity photo shoot
The mum-to-be is embracing her beautiful bump.
Global superstar Rihanna is making waves on social media as she fearlessly embraces pregnancy and motherhood in a unique way.
The singer took to Instagram on Friday, sharing a series of topless photographs, capturing the essence of her first pregnancy in a photoshoot she titled "Rub on ya t**ties."
In the striking images, Rihanna is pictured wearing nothing but a thong bikini bottom, accessorised with chained beading and jewels, along with a pair of sky-high heels. With her hands strategically placed, she confidently showcases her bare torso, celebrating the magic of her body during the transformative time of pregnancy.

Expressing her excitement as a new mother, Rihanna shared, "In honor of my first pregnancy, embracing motherhood like a g, and the magic that this body made! Baby RZA... he in there not having a clue how nuts his mama is, or how obsessed he 'bout to make me."
Last year, Rihanna welcomed her first child, a son named RZA, with her partner A$AP Rocky. The couple's unique choice of name pays homage to the iconic leader of the Wu-Tang Clan.
Rihanna made the spectacular announcement of impending baby number two by proudly showcasing her noticeable bump during her sensational halftime show performance at the Super Bowl in February this year. Since then, she has displayed her growing baby belly with glamourous appearances at the Oscars and the prestigious Met Gala.

The singer is no stranger to sharing provocative images online, causing a stir by posting a topless photo of herself holding her baby niece on Twitter almost a decade ago.
More recently, she faced backlash for sharing another topless photograph of herself wearing a pendant depicting the Hindu god Ganesha, leading some to accuse the superstar of cultural appropriation.
With her recent Instagram post, Rihanna hinted at the possibility of a second topless maternity shoot in the future, as she concluded the caption with a tantalising #tobecontinued hashtag.
