Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Online, Eric Holland, 49, from Maryland said he was really ‘happy’ that his daughter was engaged and expecting her second child.
‘Oh yeah I’m happy of course – she knows that,”As soon as I found out I was all happy for her – they’re having a baby and everything – she’s got my blessings.’I met Rob he seems like a nice man – he was nice with me and everything so I’m happy for her.”I don’t think that all this has hit her by surprise,’ he added. ‘She was always a little different you know – I always knew that she was gonna end up somewhere.
‘She liked change she never liked to stay the same. She was always doing something different and wanted to achieve things – she was this way since she was 13 or 14 years old.’
Despite the model being about to join one of America’s most famous families, dad Eric says she still makes time for her large extended family – including two half brothers and nine half sisters, who are mostly based in the Maryland and Virginia areas.
He added: ‘She was at my little daughter Summer’s birthday party two weeks ago and she took some pictures with everyone. It was really nice she made the effort for her sister.
‘She’s still in touch with all her family she’s never forgotten her roots.”People might think that she is from a broken home but I know that’s not true. I always told her it’s not how you start – it’s how you finish.’That’s the most important part of life, you know. We all have our ups and downs but it’s how you deal with them.’
And although he is pleased his daughter has found fame and fortune – he would rather stay out of the spotlight, unlike Chyna’s mother Shalana Hunter who has given numerous interviews – and has even taken to social media to vent her feelings towards the Kardashian family.
‘Yeah her mother has spoken but me, I’m a person who likes to stay out of the limelight so I haven’t. It’s her life and I’m happy for her but I have always stayed out of the whole thing.
‘She kind of introduced me to the situation by taking a picture of me and saying “this is my father”, and it kind of put me out there. But I always told her that’s not who I am – I don’t like all the attention
