Lil’ Kim welcomes baby girl, gives her a regal name

Lil Kim Pregnant - Baby Bump

Lil’ Kim welcomed a baby girl on Monday… And Lorde’s best-known song definitely doesn’t apply to her: An insider told ET that Lil’ Kim named her daughter “Royal Reign.”

The source added Royal began her Reign just before 10 a.m. at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey. The lil’ girl weighed in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces and measured 19.5 inches long.

Lil’ Kim announced her pregnancy by debuting her bump at New York Fashion Week in February. She said she was eager to become a first-time mom at 39.

“I can’t wait to be a mom,” Kim said of her first child. “I’m still going to work… I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!”

She hasn’t revealed the identity of Royal Reign’s father. She was linked to Floyd Mayweather in September 2013, although it appeared to be a platonic relationship. E! News reports New York-based rapper Mr. Papers seemed to claim parentage…

Either way, congrats to Kim on her ‘lil family!
