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