Monica + Husband Shannon Brown Welcome Baby Girl [PHOTO]

It’s a girl for Monica and Shannon Brown!

The R&B diva and her pro-athlete hubby welcomed their first child together, Laiyah Brown, on Tuesday (Sept. 3). Their friend Vanessa Bryant, wife of basketball superstar Kobe, broke the news yesterday (Sept. 5) on Instagram, saying, “I am so honored to announce that baby Laiyah Brown has arrived! Mommy and baby are healthy and well. Congratulations @shannonbrown26 and @monicamylife! We love you guys and we can’t wait to meet Laiyah! #6lbs 9/3/13.”

Monica, meanwhile, changed her Twitter and Instagram descriptions to say she’s “Laiyah’s Mommy.” Shannon, a former L.A. Lakers teammate of Kobe’s, also shared his joy on social media, posting the adorable above picture — giving us just the slightest peek at his their pride and joy — with probably the most beautiful caption ever:


Both Monica and Shannon — who met and married and late 2010 and renewed their wedding vows in July 2011 — have children with previous partners. Monica has two sons from her relationship with rapper Rocko, and Brown also has a son. So Laiyah is not only the first girl in the family, but she’s going to grow up with three big brothers.

Congrats to the whole family!
