Tyrese Gibson and his wife Samantha Lee Gibson welcomed their first child, a daughter, after a gnarly 30-hour labor.
“Soraya Lee Gibson is here…… 8 pounds 6 Oz our lives just changed forever,” the “Fast & Furious” actor announced on Instagram late Monday evening.
Praising his wife for being “the real champion,” he revealed the strenuous conditions surrounding the 30-hour delivery, writing, “I witnessed first hand the strength of a woman.”
Sharing a photo of their daughter’s footprints, Tyrese vowed, “Soraya we are going to love you and protect you till the end of this earth.”
He also gave fans a look at what hospital life is like, posting a photo showing him snoozing on a couch next to his sleeping newborn, hashtagging the pic #DaddyDuties.
“Overjoyed thank you guys for all the sincere covering in prayers and love queen and princess Gibson is resting!!!!” Tyrese wrote. He also said this will be his last post: “can’t reveal our angel my wife ain’t havin it.”
This is the second child for Tyrese. He’s already dad to 11-year-old Shayla, a daughter he’s currently battling for custody with his ex over.
Tyrese isn’t sweating that at the moment though, revealing Shayla will get to meet her new baby sister is just four short days.
