Monica may have given birth to this generation’s “Miss Thang.”

The 32-year-old “Angel of Mine” singer and her husband Phoenix Suns player Shannon Brown, 27, welcomed their first child together, Laiyah Shannon Brown, to the world on Tuesday, September 3 in Atlanta, Ga. According to their rep, Laiyah arrived after 12 hours of labor, weighing in at 6 pounds and one ounce and measuring 19 inches long. “Mom, Dad and baby are doing great!” her rep told People.

Upon hearing the news, family friend Vanessa Bryant, the wife of Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant, was so excited she posted a picture of the happy couple on her Instagram account. “I am so honored to announce that baby Laiyah Brown has arrived! Mommy and baby are healthy and well,” Bryant wrote. “Congratulations @shannonbrown26 and @monicamylife! We love you guys and we can’t wait to meet Laiyah! #6lbs 9/3/13.”

Although this is Monica’s first child with Brown, the singer has two sons Rodney, 8, and Romelo, 5, from a previous relationship with her ex-fiance, rapper Rodney “Rocko” Hill. “They were there when their little sister’s entrance into the world took place,” the rep added. But it seems no one is more excited at the arrival of Laiyah then her proud papa.

“I THANK GOD for her!” Brown captioned the first photo of his daughter that he posted on Instagram below. “JOY has been restored in my LIFE!”
