I'm of the notion that everyone has rhythm. You couldn't walk, or do a number of other things otherwise. What everyone doesn't have is the ability to get out of their own way and let themselves keep the beat. It's too easy to overthink, and with the overthinking, and the accompanying nerves, screw up the beat. "Now? Is it now? No, OK, how about, oh damn, too late, or maybe too early. Damn." And your first (or first few, or first several) times in front of someone actually listening to you, especially your musician dad?? Yep. That can rattle you.
Now, keeping a steady, don't let the adrenaline speed you up, beat - that's just a matter of practice and discipline.
