Jamie Erdahl channeled Rihanna to pull off her clever pregnancy announcement.
On Tuesday, the “Good Morning Football” co-host revealed she and her husband, Sam Buckman, are expecting their third child together, sharing the joyous news through her Halloween costume — a red jumpsuit similar to the one Rihanna wore during her Super Bowl 2023 performance, where she announced her second pregnancy.
“I am not going to be Rihanna, I am embodying Rihanna,” Erdahl said on the NFL Network morning show. “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.”
Erdahl’s announcement was met with cheers and applause from her “GMFB” co-hosts, Peter Schrager, Kyle Brandt and Devin McCourty.
“I’m about halfway there,” Erdahl said, smiling.
“So we have a spring ‘GMFB’ baby coming our way.”
Erdahl — who rocked red leather gloves, sneakers and the same hairstyle Rihanna did on the big stage — even had a microphone as a prop and belted out the singer’s song, “Work.”
Brandt was a big fan of the costume.
“Jamie may I say, with all due respect, that look works on you,” he said. “It really does. Oh my gosh.”
Erdahl also took to Instagram on Tuesday with photos of the “GMFB” crew in their costumes.
“It was true 👑 material when @badgalriri performed Super Bowl 57 pregnant,” she captioned her post. “No better way to power through a pregnant season on @GMFB.”
Erdahl and Buckman, who celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary in July, are parents to two daughters, Brooke Marie and Avery.
Buckman played college football for the University of Michigan, where he served as the team’s kicker.
He reportedly currently works in marketing at Stryker, a medical technologies corporation based in Michigan — however, the family resides in New York City, where “GMFB” films.
