Wale is officially a dad. On Friday afternoon, TMZ reported that Wale’s longtime girlfriend, Chloe Alexis, gave birth to the couple’s first child in NYC. The delivery was reportedly long & challenging since Chloe went into labor two days earlier on Wednesday (July 20), but the most important thing is that it’s healthy.

There's no word yet as for what the couple named their daughter, but Wale quickly confirmed the news on Twitter shortly after the delivery, admitting that today was the first day in his life he actually cried & smiled at the same time.

A big congratulation is in stored to the MMG rapper. Peep his tweets below.
