Criminal Minds star Shemar Moore is officially a dad as he and girlfriend Jesiree Dizon have welcomed a baby girl.
It was only announced recently that the couple were expecting, with a due date of 8 February.
But the little one has come a few weeks early, with a rep for Moore telling People that Dizon has given birth to a baby girl.
The rep said: "Shemar Moore and his partner, Jesiree Dizon, are happy to announce the birth of their baby girl. The family is very happy and healthy."
On Instagram, Moore confirmed the news himself, reposting the People article.
He said: "Ya boy is officially a Dad!!! Dreams come true!! The rest of my life is here!"
Earlier this month, Moore revealed he was going to be a dad for the first time, as he admitted he thought his ‘ship might have sailed’ on ever becoming a parent.
Speaking on The Jennifer Hudson Show, Moore revealed that Dizon was pregnant and the due date was not too far away.
He said: "I'm Shemar Moore, 52 and a half years old. My mother is in heaven, right now it'll be the three-year anniversary on February 8.
"And on February 8, I'm going to make one of her dreams come true because, in real life, Shemar Moore is about to be a daddy."
As you'd expect the audience erupted into a massive applause, as Hudson offered her congratulations on the news.
He added: "I'm so excited. I'm sorry she can't be here. I was worried for a while that it was a 'that ship has sailed' kind of thing but God had my back, and things lined up.
"It's going to be the best part of... My life is already pretty grand, but I know whenever God does call my name, once I get this experience, I'll be able to go to heaven whole."
After the interview on The Jennifer Hudson Show, Moore posted a video of him and his partner finding out the gender of their unborn child.
In the video he says: "It's either going to be Legend, little homie, or it's going to be Frankie, little baby girl and I'm about to be a father come February 8, 2023."
Captioning the heartwarming clip, Moore wrote: "Mama’s smiling from Heaven … Miracles happen … Here comes the BEST part of my life."
In the clip, a helicopter could be seen flying above, releasing pink smoke to confirm that the couple were expecting a baby girl.
After that, the couple embrace with guests while Moore holds aloft a shirt with the words 'Girl Dad' on it.
