Rihanna’s father, Ronald Fenty, found out about his daughter’s second pregnancy in the same way as millions of other viewers: during her Super Bowl halftime performance.
Like any excited grandfather, Fenty is overjoyed about the news and hopes for a granddaughter this time around.
Speaking to TMZ, Fenty revealed that he was given tickets to the Super Bowl by Rihanna without knowing that she was pregnant.
He was surprised and ecstatic when he saw the baby bump from the stands, exclaiming to his partner, “Oh my god! My baby girl looks pregnant!”
Fenty, who already has four grandsons, is thrilled at the prospect of having a granddaughter and hopes that Rihanna can “shake things up” by having a girl.
He points out that he’s had great luck in that department with his famous daughter.
Last year, when it was first revealed that Rihanna was pregnant with her first child, Fenty had expressed his hope for a granddaughter. “I hope so,” he said. “I think she’ll be a great mom, and I just want health and happiness for her and the baby.”
Although Fenty hasn’t been involved in the life of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s first child, he says he would love to be a part of his new grandchild’s life.
However, with Rihanna’s busy schedule and Fenty living in Barbados, it may be a challenge to be actively involved.
Ronald and Rihanna have had a tumultuous relationship over the years, with Fenty publicly commenting on their strained relationship.
However, he says that he’s proud of his daughter’s accomplishments and loves her unconditionally.
