It’s another girl for Ludacris!

The Furious 7 star, né Chris Bridges, and wife Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue have welcomed their first child together, daughter Cadence Gaëlle.

The baby weighed in at 7 lbs., 4 oz., and is “beautiful like her mom,” PEOPLE confirms. Gaëlle means “a father’s joy.”

“She is here,” Mbouguiyengue captioned an Instagram photo of the couple’s dog sporting a “baby girl” balloon. “#blessed #grateful”

Sharing a Throwback Thursday photo of his wife with her mother as a baby, the Ludaversal rapper, 37, wrote, “#tbt now Eudoxie will be switching places. #blessings #love #life”

The new addition joins big sisters Cai, 18 months, and Karma, 13, Bridges’ daughters from previous relationships.

She is here😍😍😍 💗💗💗 #blessed #grateful

He and his new bride announced the pregnancy in March, just months after getting married over the holidays on the same day he popped the question.

In April, the pair celebrated their upcoming arrival with a secret garden-themed baby shower.

Maybe they’ll stop playing house & give Tamika her daughter back. He truly disgusts me.

Congrats to the happy couple! Beautiful baby name. And now, I hope Chris and Eudoxie will give the other mother her toddler daughter back now that they have their own little girl. SMH.

For so called grown women to say ” I hope he gives the other baby back to her mother” actually sounds worse. That would make it look like he doesn’t want his own flesh & blood. He has just as much a right to have custody of his daughter as would the mother. Totally sexist and wrong.

Love the baby’s name…Cadence is my daughter’s name!
