Criminal Minds star Shemar Moore reveals baby girl's name as he shares first photo

The actor, 52, called his new arrival 'the love of my life'.

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!

Some of Shemar's famous friends took to the Instagram comments to send their well-wishes.

Academy Award-winner Jennifer Hudson wrote: "Congratulations!!!!!"
