This weekend, Rihanna’s father, Ronald Fenty, was interviewed by Page Six as interest in the musical artist reaches a fervor pitch preceding her Super Bowl Halftime performance. Her show on Sunday, February 12, will be her first live public performance since 2018. He ultimately ended up giving a glimpse into Rihanna’s family life and her new motherhood, as well.

“Everybody is saying that football is just opening up for her — it’s the Rihanna show,” Fenty began. “It’s the moment that everybody has been waiting for.”

Fenty said he is planning to fly to Las Vegas from Barbados for the event and travel with a friend in a Winnebago to the event, saying, “The hotels are sold out at outrageous prices. Oh my gosh, they’re like $1,600 a night!…We’re going to the after-party. We don’t have tickets for the show.”

He then shared that Rihanna has visited Barbados with her nine-month-old son twice, and was asked about how she’s doing with being a mom for the first time.

“She’s loving it. She’s a very overprotective mother,” he said. “Everybody says [the baby] looks like me, but you know, babies change, faces change. He [resembles] a lot of Rihanna and Rocky together.”

When asked if he would share the baby’s name, Fenty hedged for a bit by claiming that the couple had gone through a “few names” before adding, “She’ll have my head if I tell you!”

Asked about marriage, Fenty replied, “I don’t know about marriage, I really don’t know.”

Rihanna and her father have had a complicated relationship over the year’s as he struggled with addiction. He and her mother Monica divorced when she was 2014. She brought a lawsuit against him for allegedly misusing her name for his own entertainment company, but she dismissed it in 2021 and they have reportedly reconciled.
