Matt Kemp Shows Rihanna the Birthday Love

by at . Comments

Matt Kemp is projected as the sixth-best player in fantasy baseball headed into the 2010 MLB season. If hitting home runs with celebrities was a statistic, though?

He'd still be behind Alex Rodriguez. But that #2 spot would be within reach after the awesome 22nd birthday party he threw for Rihanna in Phoenix this weekend!

Rihanna was "shocked" by the baseball star's grand gestures, apparently expecting a small get-together with a few friends, but getting a whole lot more than that.

Kemp had been planning the event for a month to make sure Rihanna's birthday was special, according to an insider, and boy did he come through in the clutch.

Flowers, cupcakes, tiki torches in the pool, engraved bottles of Ace of Spades and Johnny Walker Blue, and a personal Jamaican chef? A kick-ass time was had.

Sounds like Matt Kemp's birthday bash for Rihanna was a smash hit.

Around 40 people showed up, including friends of both the singer and Matt Kemp, who topped off the night with a cake decorated with Rihanna's many tattoos.

"It was so sweet and she was really surprised," the source said. "She looked just beautiful." Especially in the custom diamond necklace her beau bought for her!

This guy's really going the extra mile. While she has been coy about dating Matt Kemp so far, they're leaving little doubt about a major love connection going on.

Only 25 years old and in his prime, Matt Kemp would be a keeper in any fantasy league. Looks like Rihanna might rate him that way in the game of love, as well.
