Ray J is a new dad!

On Tuesday, May 22, 2018, Ray J announced that his wife, Princess Love, was going into labor. "ITS TIME!!" he shared, posting a clip of a video documenting their journey toward parenthood. In his Instagram bio, Ray J linked to the full video, featuring the song "4 My Baby" that he wrote for his daughter, that was posted on YouTube in March 2018.  

In a separate post shared seven hours later, Ray J told his 1.2 million followers, "CANT BELIEVE ITS HAPPENING!! THIS IS AMAZING!! UNREAL #GODISHERE."

Ray J also shared an article via his Instagram Stories, further confirming that Princess Love was giving birth.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Ray J revealed that he and his wife were expecting their first child together in November 2017. As a guest on The Real, Ray J told the talk show's co-hosts the big news. "I'm nervous, excited. It finally happened," he shared. "It took me to focus and do the right thing for my side, take care of my responsibilities and get fresh." He added, "It was special because we was trying for a while. It's not as easy as some people think."

Princess Love later opened up about her pregnancy on her Instagram page. Posting a photo of herself with her baby bump on full display, she wrote (via Page Six), "My prayers were finally answered September 15th, 2017 the day I found out I was pregnant. From that point on I knew this little life depended on me to nurture and protect and I've been doing everything in my power to make sure my baby girl is safe and growing healthy."

Congratulations to the happy couple!
