Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance is now officially the most watched half time performance in Super Bowl history.

Just moments before the Barbadian singer took the stage, official figures say that 121 million viewers tuned in for the half time show.

The highly anticipated show was the Where Have You Been singer’s first live performance in five years and signaled her return to the music industry.

During her 13 minutes on stage, Rihanna revealed that she is pregnant with her second child, an announcement that sent fans into a spiral while they flooded her social media accounts with congratulatory messages.

Rihanna dethroned Katy Perry, as the American pop singer who previously held the title for the most watched half time show. Perry in 2015, pulled 114 million viewers when she headlined the act.
