The My Prerogative singer has been given something to smile about as he maintains a bedside vigil over Bobbi Kristina Brown, his only daughter from his marriage to tragic Whitney Houston - his wife Alicia Etheridge has given birth to the couple's second child.

The baby was born at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles on Saturday (17Jul15), according to reports.

Brown wed his manager Etheridge in 2012 and their first child, Cassius, was born in 2010. The new baby is the R&B star's sixth.

His 22-year-old daughter is still clinging to life at a hospice in Georgia after doctors informed the family they had done all they could for her.

Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in her bathtub in Roswell, Georgia, on 31 January (15). She was placed in a medically-induced coma upon her arrival in hospital.
