The Bajan songstress took a break from her hectic tour schedule to fly to her native island and wish her grandfather Bravo a Happy 85th Birthday with a family party, which was held at her mum's house.
Of course after the celebrations were over, Rihanna was quick to post a number of candid snaps from Bravo's bash on Instagram for her fans to see, as well as writing various heartfelt captions.
One of the photo captions was particularly touching, as RiRi explained how her grandfather and late grandmother Dolly had first met.
She wrote: "Happy Birthday Grandfadda Bravo!!!!! You are so special to all of us!!! If it wasn't for you buying out the whole tray of mangoes from gran gran Dolly that one day you got off your ship in Guyana, and charmed her with that smile laced with a gold cap, NONE of us would be here!!
"So Im saying a special thanks to you for having the heart of a Lion, my Scorpio King, Legend!!! They will never know what it took for you to get us here!! I love you way past unconditional!!! You're true az steel BRAVO!!!! #BirthdayBoy"
In the pictures from the evening, Rihanna can be seen wearing a gorgeous gold dress from her self-titled River Island collection, along with a pair of chunky gold earrings and a statement necklace.
Several of her tattoos are also exposed in the outfit, including the most recent henna-inspired inking on her hand, which she originally had done in New Zealand.
She appears to be wearing minimal make-up too.
One of the cute snaps shows Bravo stood in front of his birthday cake with his superstar granddaughter behind him.
Rihanna wrote beside the picture: "He loved his cake so much! He kept asking "ya cud eat it?" Lol! #bravobirthdaybash #85 thank you @withlovebyej for another dope ass cake #barbados"
No doubt RiRi was happy to have some down time with her home friends and family, since she has been occupied with touring the world for most of this year.
Recently she was seen posing up a storm in her bikini in the Dominican Republic, after performing an impressive concert in Puerto Rico that she dubbed "one of the best nights on tour".
