This is almost too cute for words.
Rihanna took to social media on Friday to wish her grandfather a happy 88th birthday.

"Captain of the ship....my grandfather #Bravo," she captioned an adorable photo of her grandfather. "Such an inspiration to the 4 generations that came after you (so far) and as a result of you! It was ‘only’ 61 years ago that you met my 17 year old grandma #Dolly and bought out her entire tray of mangoes, just so she didn't have to work and could spend the rest of the day with you! The ship from Barbados that you worked on left you in Guyana that day!! I bless God for that day.... it was the beginning of many blessings to come! My whole existence depended on that very day! Your strength, love, prayers, discipline, sense of humor and STUBBORNNESS are just a few of the things we love about you, and why you're truly our guardian angel sent to us from Heaven! I love you with all my heart, and I'm so happy that God spared you to see the 88th year of your life!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY OG!!!"
Are we allowed to cry now?
The Barbados native is spending some much-needed quality time with family following her split from Drake last month.
Meanwhile, rumors are swirling that the “One Dance” singer has been getting cozy with Taylor Swift. Following his 30th birthday party, Drake shared a photo of the pair at the private event.

“Is that velvet?” he captioned the photo.
