Showing off her humor, the singer joked that she tried to get the role of Papa Smurf but the part didn't work out for her. Rihanna -- who is expecting baby number two with A$AP Rocky -- also noted that she hopes the role gives her some cool points with her kids in the future.

Although her appearance was brief, Rihanna made a statement as she showed off her baby bump in a denim dress for the occasion. While on the carpet, the proud mommy held on to her bump while she posed for pictures.

It's been a big year for the singer, who took the stage at this year's Academy Awards to perform her Oscar-nominated song, "Lift me Up," from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack.

A month prior, she took the stage during the Super Bowl Halftime Show, where she revealed she was expecting baby number two.

Rihanna, who is already the mother of a 11-month-old son, dished to ET about her milestones, ahead of her performance.

"Motherhood, Oscars, Super Bowl, I'm still pinching myself, really," she continued. "I'm grateful. I'm grateful."
