Tyrese Gibson and his wife Samantha celebrated the birth of their first child, daughter Soraya Lee Gibson, by sharing a series of heartwarming posts on Monday (Oct. 1).

The singer and actor first shared an adorable photo of his daughter’s footprints on Instagram. “Our lives just changed forever,” he wrote.

In another post, Gibson proclaimed he’s “Already on #DaddyDuties,” sharing a picture of him sleeping on a couch next to his newborn’s bassinet. In this caption, Gibson also gives credit where credit is due, saying, “My wife is the real champion here I have never seen this level of strength and will power,” referring to the 30 hours she spent in labor. 

Baby Soraya Lee joins the family along with 11-year-old big sister Shayla, Tyrese’s daughter from his previous marriage to Norma Mitchell.
