Wale Welcomes First Child

Congratulations are in order for Wale.

The D.C. rapper just became a father for the first time, reports TMZ. His girlfriend, Chloe Alexis, gave birth to a baby girl on Friday afternoon in New York City.

Wale was scheduled to perform at the One Africa Music Fest at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center tonight, but had to cancel. He is currently at the hospital with his daughter.

The new dad took to Twitter to share his joy. “I never cried and smiled at the same time until today,” he wrote. “She so beautiful slim… She perfect.”

Alexis reportedly went into labor on Wednesday. So far, there is no word on the baby’s name.
