The Furious 7 star's wife, Eudoxie, gave birth to a daughter and they shared the happy news on on Thursday (04Jun15).

The new mum posted a picture of the couple's dog with a balloon announcing it's a 'baby girl', and captioned the snap, "She is here #blessed #grateful".

Ludacris also broke the news to fans by uploading an image of Eudoxie as a baby, being cradled by her mother, for the weekly "Throwback Thursday (tbt)" trend, writing, #tbt now @eudoxiee will be switching places. #blessings #love #life".

According to the New York Post, the child has been named Cadence Gaelle, with the second name meaning "a father's joy".

She joins half sisters Cai, 18 months, and 13-year-old Karma, Ludacris' two kids from previous relationships.

Ludacris and Eudoxie became engaged at Christmas and wed just hours later. They confirmed the pregnancy news in March (15).
