Just a week after a carnival-themed baby shower, Monica has delivered a healthy baby girl alongside her husband, Shannon Brown.
The couple welcomed a daughter named Laiyah into the world on Thursday. The proud dad confirmed the news via Twitter, "I THANK GOD for her!!! JOY has been restored in my LIFE!!!" He then posted a picture of himself holding his bundle of joy on Instagram with the caption, "Daddy’s Girl."
This newborn is the first child for the couple, who married in 2010. Monica has two sons, Rocko Ramone Hill III, 8, and Romelo Montez Hill, 5, with rapper Rocko, while Brown has a son, Shannon Christopher, from a previous relationship.
