Fenty, 68, said he was "ecstatic" when Rihanna told him she was pregnant.

Ronald suggested Rihanna waited too long until her eggs were nearly dust.
He said: "If you want to bake a good cake you've got to have fresh eggs."
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."
Ronald is convinced Rihanna will be a great mother and motherhood will come naturally to her. He said she is very protective of her brothers, nephews and all children.
He said he hopes Rihanna will have a girl.
"I already have two grandsons so I would like a granddaughter this time."
Bajan singer Rihanna is reportedly upset that her father claimed she sent him a ventilator as he was battling covid-19.
The 32-year-old Barbados native claims she did no such thing -- as she had no idea he was allegedly sick.
"He doesn't need a ventilator, and she didn't send him one," a source told Page Six. The source said Rih is not happy with the tabloid story, as she was unaware her father had contracted the virus.
Ronald Fenty told a British tabloid he spent two weeks in quarantine and was allowed to return to his home. He says he is now coronavirus-free. He urged others to take the virus seriously.
But friends say the elder Fenty never had the coronavirus.
Shameless CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has also been accused of lying about contracting the virus. On Monday, he staged a "reunion" with his wife and children after allegedly spending two weeks on quarantine in his basement.
Cuomo, 49, dramatically emerged from his basement in a video that aired on CNN.
But Cuomo previously admitted leaving his home with his wife on Easter Sunday to visit the site of his new house in East Hampton when he was supposed to be on quarantine.
We only know this because he got into a shouting match with a man who filed a police report after Cuomo allegedly threatened him.
