Lil Kim has become a mother to a baby girl.
The 38-year-old rapper's assistant, Noel Perez, confirmed that she gave birth to a daughter named Royal Reign on June 9. She is the first child for Lil Kim, whose real name is Kim Jones.
Her rep told E! News that Royal was born at 9.58am at Hackensack University Medical Centre in New Jersey. She weighed 6lbs, 5oz and measured 19.5 inches long.
Lil Kim, who released a track called Haterz in April, announced her pregnancy in February, as she continued to perform live.
Rapper Mr Papers, who is said to be in a long-term relationship with Lil Kim, revealed in an interview shortly afterwards that he is the father.
