The pregnancy was revealed after the happy couple was pictured in New York City over the weekend debuting her baby bump.
Ronald said he believes that at 33 the singer is at just the right age to start a family of her own – and is hoping she will have a baby girl.
Speaking from his home in Barbados, Ronald exclusively told The Sun: “I’m ecstatic.
“To be honest I only found out yesterday but for the last five years, everybody was saying she was pregnant all the time.
“She called me and said she had some good news for me and I automatically knew what it was.
“I think this is a good time, she doesn’t want to wait until she’s in her 40s.”
He continued: “If you want to bake a good cake you’ve got to have fresh eggs.
“Rihanna is very protective of her brothers, nephews and all kids, she will be a great mother. It will come naturally to her.
“I already have two grandsons so I would like a granddaughter this time.
“Since the news was announced I’ve been bombarded by phone calls from friends and relatives, everyone is very happy.”
KEEPING IT PRIVATE
Prior to revealing the pregnancy, Rihanna had kept her baby bump under wraps by wearing baggy clothes when she was seen out and about.
In December, the Barbadian appeared to slap down growing rumors that she was expecting as she told a fan on Instagram: “Y’all breed me every year dammit.”
However Rihanna and A$AP both had both publicly discussed their desire to become parents in the past.
The pair were confirmed to be dating in November 2020 after she split from her boyfriend of three years Hassan Jameel in January of that year.
