Congrats, Lil Kim! The rapper gave birth to her first child, a daughter she named Royal Reign.

Entertainment Tonight reports the baby girl was born just before 10AM today (June 9). Royal Reign weighed in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces.

The identity of the baby’s father remains unconfirmed, although ET reports it is rumored to be Mr. Papers, a rapper based in New York. According to E!, Lil Kim was first linked to Mr. Papers in June 2012.

Lil Kim took her pregnancy public in February during the Blonds Fashion Week after-party hosted by MAC Cosmetics. At the time, she confirmed to Us Weekly that she was expecting, saying, “I’m so excited! I’m a few months along, I can’t wait to be a mom!”

At the time, the rapper expressed her desire to keep making music after the baby was born, telling Us, “I’m still going to work. I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!”
