Congrats are in order for rapper Wale. The DMV native welcomed his first child - a baby girl - in New York on Friday (July 22).

According to TMZ, Wale’s girlfriend, Chloe Alexis, went into labor last Wednesday (July 20) and finally gave birth on Friday. The Maybach Music Group rhymer had to cancel his performance at the One Africa Music Fest in Brooklyn, so he can witness the birth of his child.

Wale went on social media to announce the birth of his daughter. The doting dad wrote on Twitter, "I never cried and smiled at the same time until today. She so beautiful slim...She perfect. My baby chocolate and beautiful."

The happy couple also decided to name their beautiful baby Zyla Moon Oluwakemi.

Wale also posted a photo on his Instagram account which features Zyla's small hand holding on to her daddy's index finger. The 31-year-old rapper also revealed that he named his upcoming album, S.H.I.N.E., after his baby daughter.

“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,” he wrote. “Imma keep workin on me and pray to God I can design a young princess who flourishes to an absolute queen .. I got u baby...U go girl...You are my everything and I’ll see to it we SHINE my precious Zyla.”

Congratulations to Wale and Chloe Alexis on their new bundle of joy.
