Shemar Moore has shared the first adorable picture of his newborn daughter.
Earlier this month, Shemar 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 during an appearance on The Jennifer Hudson Show.
The former Criminal Minds actor announced that he and his girlfriend, Jesiree Dizon, welcomed a baby girl earlier this week after previously confirming the due date as 8 February.
However the couple's new arrival decided to make her big debut a few days earlier than expecting, with a rep for the 52-year-old actor confirming that Jesiree had given birth to a girl.
Moore then took to Instagram to share the news with his fans, writing: "Ya boy is officially a Dad!!! Dreams come true!! The rest of my life is here!"
Now, the S.W.A.T. actor introduced his little one to the world with a picture of him snuggled up next to his daughter.
The world's proudest 'girl dad' captioned the post: "FRANKIE MOORE!!!! BABY GIRL in da building!!! Born January 24… at 3:38pm…. 7.1 Pounds… 20 inches…. 10 fingers n 10 toes… Already THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!! I’m a Girl Daddy!!!! HOLY SH*T!!! DREAMS COME TRUE!!"
The former The Young and the Restless star also included a tribute to his beloved mum, Marilyn Joan Wilson-Moore, who passed away in February 2020 aged 76.
"Grandma Marilyn is in heaven puff puff passing, drinking her wine, and doing her happy dance… I LOVE and MISS YOU everyday Mom."
He added: "Frankie is gonna grow up to be a KILLA!!! Watch out World, here comes 'Frankie Muthaf***in Moore'!!!!"
Welcome to the world Frankie Moore!
