Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty expressed his excitement over the pregnancy, telling Page Six:
“I just got the news from her last night, and she sent me some photos…I’m just over the moon. She’s beautiful inside and out.”
“I’m ecstatic… I’m so happy that I jumped for joy. I’m still so excited… Rihanna always said that she wanted children, she loves kids. She always takes care of her cousins’ kids…she’s going to be a good mom.”
The pair’s relationship dates back to 2012 when Rocky was featured in a remix of “Cockiness (Love It)” by Rihanna in which they performed it together at the MTV Video Music Awards. Rocky then joined Rihanna on tour in 2013.
