LIL' KIM has given birth to a baby girl.

The 39-year-old star welcomed her first child into the world with her musician boyfriend, Mr. Papers, at Hackensack University Medical Centre in New Jersey at 9.58 a.m. this morning (09.06.14).

A spokesperson for the 'Lady Marmalade' hitmaker told that she has named her daughter Royal Reign and the tot weighed six pounds, five ounces, and measured 19.5 inches long.

The rapper - real name Kimberly Jones - announced she was pregnant in February and recently asked her fans to buy her baby gifts.

Kim got her assistant to post a message on Twitter listing the stores where she is registered, including Tiffany & Co., Petit Tresor, Bel Bambini, Buy Buy Baby and Babies 'R' Us, with the message: ''Please make sure they check off your gift from the registry after purchase. Thank u guys so much'', with an address of where to send the gifts.

The items include a $500 Tiffany & Co. sterling silver baby beaker and a more budget-friendly Snow White bib and booties set, retailing at $9.99, but some fans criticised her ''tacky'' move.

Kim also allegedly displayed ''diva behaviour'' when she was four hours late to her own baby shower in New York City last month.

A source previously said: Kim was four hours late to her own baby shower! Guests were told to arrive at 4p.m., [and] she got there at 8p.m. Everyone was annoyed, but it was expected of Kim to be so late.''
