During his visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week to perform "Big Fish" alongside Vince Staples, Juicy J made an exciting announcement: The Oscar-winning rapper and his wife Regina Perera are expecting a baby girl.

"Today, I found out my wife is 12 weeks pregnant," he told Kimmel and the crowd. "I'm having a baby girl. Yeah, man. Happiest day of my life."

Kimmel was quick to congratulate him on the big news. "Wow, you already know the gender of the baby! Wow, that's unbelievable," Kimmel says.

Juicy J and Perera got married a little more than a year ago in Las Vegas. In a heartfelt Instagram posted about a month ago for the couple's one-year anniversary, Perera wrote, "We managed to make it through our first year which they claim to be the hardest. And I'm sitting here thinking if this is the hardest, then life is going to be really good."

This will be the first child for the couple.

 

In today's day n age where marriage isn't even considered important or sacred we happened to have cross that one year mark line regardless of the chaos type of world we live in. We managed to make it through our first year which they claim to be the hardest. And I'm sitting here thinking if this is the hardest, then life is going to be really good. I remember when we started dating you told me "I'm gonna marry you"--and to me it came thru one ear and out the other ----but you really did make it come true✨✨Love is not about how many days, months, or years you have been together. Love is about how much you love each other every single day. And you have done nothing but shown me that. Happy anniversary baby, and many more to come. ❤️---- @juicyj
