Wish granted.

Tracy Morgan always wanted a daughter, and now the comedian and his fiancée Megan Wollover have one, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Maven Sonae Morgan arrived at 12:03 a.m. on Tuesday, July 2 in New York, the rep tells PEOPLE. Weighing in at 7 lbs., 3 oz., she measured 19.59 inches long.

“Mother and child are doing fine,” the actor, 44, tells PEOPLE. “Love to all my fans and thank you for your support. We hope to see you soon.”

Morgan has three grown sons from his previous marriage, while baby Maven is 26-year-old Wollover’s first child.

The former Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock star announced the pregnancy exclusively to PEOPLE in January.

“I am over the moon excited and just want a happy and healthy baby and a safe delivery for Megan,” he said at the time.

The couple, who were engaged in 2011, celebrated at a pink-filled baby shower in New Jersey in May.

You know, I really gotta wonder. If all these men celebrities with younger wives/girlfriends that are 15+ older than their significant other, if the men were just ordinary joes with ordinary jobs, if their women would’ve even looked twice at them? Somehow I doubt it.

meghan on

Aw! He got his little girl!

Hey people, don’t knock older guys going for younger girls. I have always been drawn to older men no matter what they’re worth or what they’re back ground.

Dawn, my husband is 16 yrs older than me and he is an average joe he works in the service industry. I can not imagine my life without him we have 2 beautiful children and are truly blessed he has 3 grown children and a grade school age child.So yes it is possible to love someone older than you even if they arent rich!!!

My husband is 18 years older than me, Im 34 years old and he is 52 years and he is the best thing that ever happened to me and my daughter. He is a regular joe with a regular job and treats us very good. Thats the difference.

Cute name and alliteration , even though they might not know “maven” is Yiddish slang for a know-it-all. At least it’s not something you find on a GPS, a la “North West”.

Hopefully the baby looks like her mother because this is the ugliest man I have ever seen!

Beautiful name. :)

@Gigi It could be worse.. He could be Jay-Z or Kanye. And my mom and dad were 10 years apart, with my dad being 50 when I was born, and he had PTSD and was paralyzed because of a stroke when I was 6 months and Mom still stayed with him. It isn’t a question of money, but of the moral character and emotions you feel for the person.
