Wale is a father!

The rapper and girlfriend Chloé Alexis welcomed their first child together on Friday (July 22) -- a baby girl named Zyla Moon Oluwakemi.

"I never cried and smiled at the same time until today," Wale wrote on Twitter. "She so beautiful slim... She perfect."

He also shared a photo of the baby gripping his finger.

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 .. I got u baby ... U go girl .. You are my everything and I'll see to it we SHiNE my precious Zyla💙
