Rihanna's grandfather just turned 90 years old, and the superstar made sure not to miss this milestone in his life. Celebrating the long life he lived, he made sure to party it up and show off his dance moves even at his old age.


The Barbados native made sure to head home over the weekend to celebrate her grandfather's birthday, and she seemed to have had a very good time with him and the rest of their family. They celebrated Lionel "Bravo" Braithwaite's 90th birthday at a restaurant called the Cliff in Durants, where they seemed to have had the whole place to themselves for a private celebration.


Based on the videos from that night, it seems we now know where Rihanna got her talent from, as Grandpa Bravo himself is a stellar dancer even at 90-years-old. In an adorable and priceless video, he was spinning his beautiful granddaughter around, leading her in their dance.


It seems life in a tropical island like Barbados has made him age particularly well, as he looked and acted nothing like his age, and seemed to be much younger at that.


For their party, Rihanna donned a stunning red ruffled dress, matching it with a gold necklace. She wore her long raven hair down for the bash as well, keeping her makeup to a minimum given that she was just with her family and wanted to keep it cool.


Riri credits her grandfather as the reason for why she exists. According to The Daily Mail UK, her grandfather missed his boat to Guyana 63 years ago just to court her grandmother Clara, known as "Dolly".

Aside from partying it up with her grandfather, she also spent some time with her parents, Ronald and Monica Fenty, and her best friend, Melissa Forde.

Rihanna is known for throwing killer parties just like the baby shower she threw her best friend, so we wouldn't be surprised if she was the mastermind behind her grandfather's fun birthday bash, too. This wouldn't be surprising given that the proud granddaughter has always been expressive of her gratefulness to her grandfather and grandmother, even naming a foundation after them back in 2012 called the "Clara Lionel Foundation".
