Crooner Eric Benet is a proud father again. The Wisconsin native welcomed his first child with new wife Manuela Testolini last week.

The ‘A Day in the Life’ creator’s newborn daughter was born on Dec. 21, several days before the Christmas holiday. “Happiest dad in the world!” he wrote on Twitter a day after the infant, named Lucia, was born. He posted a photo alongside the tweet that showcased a woman’s pregnant belly — most likely Manuela’s — with the words “Your heart beats because of our love/ Our love beats stronger because of you” written across it.

Manuela, who was once married to Prince, wed Benet in July. Benet is the father to another daughter, India, 20, from a previous relationship.

Fatherhood once again is coming easy to the R&B singer, who, just three days after Lucia entered the world, shared his joy over laying his baby girl to rest with his legion of supporters. “Best thing in the world..sending your 3 day old baby back to sleep w lil kisses on her head at 3:20am :) so happy!!” he tweeted.
