    Rihanna's new beau is no rude boy.

    Los Angeles Dodgers star Matt Kemp surprised the sexy singer on Saturday with a 22nd birthday party in Phoenix, E! News has learned.

    Rihanna was "shocked" by the ballplayer's gesture, apparently expecting a small get-together with a few friends, a source says. She had no clue what was really in store for her.

    So how did it go?

    Pretty great. Kemp had been planning the event for at least a month to make sure Rihanna's birthday was special, according to an insider.

    There were flowers, Sprinkles cupcakes, tiki torches in the pool, engraved bottles of Ace of Spades champagne and Johnny Walker Blue, as well as a Jamaican chef who whipped up lots of appetizers for the crowd. 

    Around 40 people showed up, including both Rihanna's friends and some of Kemp's baseball pals.

    At one point, a little person billed as  Bridgette the Midget entered and danced around Rihanna to the strains of "So Hard."

    Kemp brought out a cake decorated with the songstress's various tattoos, while everyone sang "Happy Birthday."

    "It was so sweet, and she was really surprised," the source said. "She looked just beautiful."

    Kemp didn't stop his surprises with the singer's party, however.

    According to the source, he gave the birthday girl a custom diamond necklace.

    Although the couple has played coy about their budding relationship, they reportedly spent the entire weekend together, first going out on Friday night with a group of 30 on a party bus to new Arizona nightclub Revolver, and then ending the weekend with a group brunch on Sunday.
