Congrats to rapper Wale and his girlfriend Claudia Alexis Jourdan!
The two welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Zyla Moon Oluwakemmi, on Friday.
Wale took to Instagram to announce the newborn's arrival, and it's clear by his post that he couldn't be happier to be a father.
"Overjoyed," he began an emotional post on Friday. "I named by album SHiNE when I knew my baby girl was on the way."
"I want to be a better man than I ever been…I'm infinitely in love with my princess," he wrote. "Imma keep working on me and pray to God I can design a young princess who flourishes to an absolute queen."
Wale also touched on his choice to remain private about Jourdan's pregnancy this time around. The 31-year-old rapper went through a miscarriage in 2015. "I spoke on the downward spiral that ensued after complications with my previous child," he explained. "For that reason I kept this very private as I prayed every day to receive this blessing."
"You are my everything and I'll see to it we SHiNE my precious Zyla," he concluded the sweet post.
Overjoyed . I keep the most important things in my life so far away from people because I'm sensitive . Quite possibly too sensitive to even be in this business nevertheless I spoke on the downward spiral that ensued after complications with my previous child... For that reason I kept this very private as I prayed every day to receive this blessing . Thank You to all my friends so many , Iman/Teyana . Draya and O.Mel and Robyn. Finn Balor Neil Lawi. Bryson, Kehlani WizardEd.. So many ppl that stayed up wit me and talked me thru such a sensitive subject ... I named my album SHiNE when I knew my babygirl was on the way ...I want to be a better man than I ever been. I'm so flawed I'm so imperfect and the world knows it... I just want to honestly be the best version of myself I can be.. My focus is renewed I'm infinitely in love with my princess and I truly appreciate all the love you have shown her and how understanding many people who knew were .imma keep workin on me and pray to God I can design a young princess who flourishes to an absolute queen ..
