Ronald Fenty, Rihanna’s dad, found out she was pregnant at the Super Bowl halftime show.
Fenty, Rihanna’s father, says he found out she was pregnant while watching her Super Bowl halftime show
On Sunday, Fenty told TMZ that he is “over the moon about his daughter and A$AP Rocky’s new youngster” and that he hopes she has a girl.
Ronald said he is ‘hoping RiRi can shake things up with a girl,’ because he already has four grandchildren.
‘He’s excited about the prospect of having a granddaughter,” he said.
Ronald told the media source that Rihanna secretly bought him tickets to the big game.
When he saw his partner’s pregnant belly, he exclaimed, ‘Oh my god! My baby girl looks pregnant!’
Due to his daughter’s hectic schedule, Ronald, who lives in Barbados, has not yet had the chance to get involved in his grandson’s life.
Nine-time Grammy winner Rihanna surprised fans with a baby bump during her highly anticipated comeback at Super Bowl 57 last Sunday, and she later announced she was expecting her second child.
In front of a global audience of millions at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, where the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35, the 34-year-old, who had given birth to her first child just nine months earlier, took to the stage and rubbed her tummy, sending social media into a frenzy.
Shortly after the show ended, a spokeswoman for the singer confirmed the pregnancy news.
In fact, it’s the first time she’s sung on live TV since the 2018 Grammy Awards, when she sang Wild Thoughts with DJ Khaled.
Rihanna opened the show by performing “B**** Better Take My Money” while hung from a platform above the field.
Her curves were concealed by a loose-fitting crimson jumpsuit that was strapped on in a sloppy fashion.
She was showing off her growing baby bump in a skintight bodysuit.
A$AP Rocky, the father of her first child, was notably absent from the May 13, 2022, celebration. Neither musician has announced the birth of a kid or revealed the name of their unborn child.
The platform she was on lowered toward the field, and she joined a cast of other dancers, all dressed in white.
She didn’t show off her dancing skills too much, relying instead on the backup dancers to carry the show.
Throughout her 12-song set, Rihanna stuck to the hits but didn’t introduce any new material.
A roaring ovation greeted her segue into Where Have You Been, followed by the smash tune Only Girl (In The World).
Then, she moved smoothly through the tracks Wild Thoughts and Pour It Up, followed by We Found Love, Rude Guy, and Work.

The singer/songwriter performed various controversial songs, including a snippet of her line from Kanye West’s All Of The Lights and a segment of Jay-Run Z’s This Town, the original version of which also featured West.
Following a series of anti-Semitic statements, including purported praise for Adolf Hitler, West was publicly shamed.
In her final two songs, Umbrella and Diamonds, Rihanna delivered a powerful 1-2 punch.
She apparently gambled that her supporters would be thrilled to see her even without the fireworks of prior Super Bowl halftime shows, and they were.
The global icon, real name Robyn Rihanna Fenty, has been quiet since January of 2016 when she dropped her Diamonds album.
In October, she released Raise Me Up as a memorial to late actor Chadwick Boseman for the Marvel film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, for which she received an Academy Award nomination; this was her first solo album in seven years.
A$AP Rocky, as Rakim Mayers, Rihanna’s boyfriend, stayed out of the spotlight for the majority of the game, but he did make an appearance to cheer on his lady in a black jacket with her tattooed hand holding a football.
While she had been apprehensive to attend the concert due to her recent delivery, Rihanna’s pregnancy declaration came as a shock.
And I was like, ‘I was like, “You sure? I’m three months postpartum. Should I be making major decisions like this right now? I might regret this,”‘
“When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world — you can do anything,’ Rihanna continued. ‘And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world, so as scary as that was … there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all.”
She continued, ‘It’s important for my son to see that,’
