Rihanna's father has revealed that he found out about his daughter's second pregnancy at the same time as the rest of the world.

If you weren't aware, the 34-year-old pop icon took the stage at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday (February 12) for her 2023 Super Bowl halftime show performance.

After taking a break from the music scene to focus on her businesses, the 'Work' hitmaker performed a medley of her greatest hits such as 'B***h Better Have My Money', 'Where Have You Been', 'Only Girl In The World,' 'Rude Boy', 'Umbrella', and 'Diamonds'.

Rihanna's fans instantly began speculating whether she was pregnant as she wore a monochromatic red jumpsuit that exposed her baby bump.

The Grammy-winning superstar was also seen caressing her stomach a couple of times during her performance before her representative officially confirmed that she is expecting another baby with her boyfriend A$AP Rocky.

According to TMZ, Ronald Fenty - who flew from Barbados to Arizona for the big game - told the outlet on February 19 that he was watching his daughter's performance from the stands when he found out she was pregnant.

"Oh my god! My baby girl looks pregnant,", Ronald recalled saying to his fiancée. He said to the publication that he is "over the moon" about the joyful news and is hoping that the singer will welcome a girl.

While the father is happy about the baby news, he and the 'Disturbia' singer have had a strained relationship throughout the years.

As noted by Page Six, Ronald allegedly has a history of alcohol and substance abuse and divorced Rihanna’s mother, Monica Braithwaite, when the singer - whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty - was 14 years old.

She allegedly called her parent’s relationship "abusive" and in 2019 she filed a lawsuit against her father accusing him of false advertisement and misusing their last name.

However, she dropped the case two years later after both parties reached an out-of-court settlement in an effort to avoid a public disagreement.

However, it seems like the pair have reconciled over the years and now hold a mutually civil relationship. Ronald recently spoke about the musician's new role as a mother after she welcomed her first child with the 34-year-old rapper last year.

"She’s loving it. She’s a very overprotective mother," he said, as cited to the outlet. The dad also noted that the 'We Found Love' singer had visited her home country with her baby twice so far.

"Everybody says [the baby] looks like me, but you know, babies change, faces change. He [resembles] a lot of Rihanna and Rocky together," he continued.

Ronald also jested that Rihanna would "have [his] head" if he disclosed what the youngster's real name is and also remarked that Rocky was "a cool guy".

"[He’s] very respectable. He’s taking to fatherhood very well," Ronald said. However, he "doesn’t know" whether the couple will ever get married.

The celebrity couple has not publicly revealed their son’s name as Rihanna previously claimed that it was due to the couple’s busy schedules that they hadn’t yet shared it.

However, fans were given a glimpse at the beloved family of three when they posed for the cover of British Vogue's March 2023 issue.

The adorable cover shows them walking on the beach, with Rihanna in the front - reaching out her hand for her boyfriend, who is seen holding their nine-month-old son in his arms.
