Guy Ritchie‘s latest production has arrived!

The producer/director, 44, and his fiancée Jacqui Ainsley, 31, welcomed their second child together — a daughter named Rivka — by cesarean section earlier this week at London’s Portland Hospital, his rep tells PEOPLE.

“We can confirm that Guy and Jacqui are the proud parents of a new baby girl. Mother and baby are doing well,” Ritchie’s rep says in a statement.

The newest addition joins big brothers Rafael, 14 months, as well as David, 7, and Rocco, 12, Ritchie’s sons with ex-wife Madonna.

After debuting her baby bump in July — and confirming there was another baby on the way — the couple of two years announced their engagement in October.

“They’re over the moon in love,” a family friend told PEOPLE.

I bet that’s one beautiful little girl.

I am so happy to hear that they had a precious baby girl to add to their family! I am also happy that Guy found someone to be happy with as he sure seemed to not be happy with Madonna. Congratulations! Can’t wait to hear the name they have chosen for her.

So nice to see Guy Ritchie with a daughter after having 3 sons! He was very close helping raise Lourdes with madonna when they were married!

Wow…14 months apart! Have any of you planned your children that close together? I can see the benefits and/or negatives of having kids that close together, but have never done it myself!

Awww, finally Guy has a girl! Congrats to him and Jacqui! I hope they’ll release the little girl’s name soon (with Rafael, we had to wait until they announced this pregnancy to hear his name!)! Also, I wonder why they confirmed their daughter’s and Rafeal’s arrivals but didn’t say their brithdates?

I guess I should add that one reason I’m surprised Guy hasn’t released the birthdates of this baby or Rafael and doesn’t dislcose their names right away is that, if I’m remembering correctly, he and Madonna released all of Rocco’s information right away (and David’s name right away).

Im totally for single parent adoption…but who acts as Mercy’s dad? Lourdes had technically 2 dads…a biological one and a step father and David has 1. I feel bad for her that her siblings go to a father and she doesnt. Why didnt he adopt her too? And has he stopped seeing/loving Lourdes?

Mina- Guy didn’t adopt Mercy because he and Madonna had split by that point. Even if he’d wanted to (and why in the world WOULD you want to adopt your ex’s child?), I doubt any country is going to allow a pair of ex’s to adopt together (and even though you can usually add a second parent to the adoption stateside once the international part has been completed, I doubt the U.S. is going to allow a person to adopt their ex’s child either!).

As for Lourdes, if she and Guy don’t see each other anymore, I’m guessing that was probably her choice.

Also, Mina, Mercy is actually luckily in one respect. She has ONE home rather than two that she has to constantly bounce between!

BH on

Jacqui is one hot-looking mama.

Don’t worry, Jacqui..he’ll leave you for a much younger woman too.

I do not like this guy, he used Madonna for her fame and then dumped her…real classy.
