In honor of Halloween, people are getting in the spirit and dressing up for the holiday. Such is the case with the NFL Network’s Good Morning Football crew on Tuesday, as each member of the crew got dressed up and participated in the festivities.
One particular costume, however, was executed perfectly. GMFB host Jamie Erdahl took the opportunity to wear the costume of the latest Super Bowl halftime show performer and make a bit of an announcement herself.
Jamie Erdahl Reveals Pregnancy Dressed as Rihanna
The most recent Super Bowl saw the superstar, Grammy-winning artist Rihanna, rock the stage at halftime. While doing so, the artist made an announcement to the world that she was pregnant at the time of the performance. It was a touching tribute and a surprising moment for the world to find out on the biggest stage.
Fast forward to today, and Erdahl decided to pay homage to that moment by making an announcement of her own — a very cool moment for the show.

“I’m not going to be Rihanna. I am embodying Rihanna,” Erdahl opened with.
“And the costume began with the origination of, really, the idea that the list of self-made musical billionaires has grown to two that are affiliated with the NFL: Taylor Swift now and, of course, Rihanna was the original.
“She also was pregnant when she performed the Super Bowl halftime show in February, and that’s where I began my costume, as well, because I am pregnant. I’m about halfway there, so we’ve got a spring GMFB baby coming our way.”
