Luis Fonsi has received an early holiday present – a baby!
The Boricua singer and his girlfriend, Spanish model Agueda Lopez, are now proud parents. People en Español is reporting that their baby girl, named Mikaela, was born yesterday at 1:46 p.m. in Miami, Florida.
The same day, 33-year-old Fonsi took to Twitter to announce his baby’s birth to his more than 1.9 million followers. “I want to officially the arrival of my princess Mikaela to the world!!!” the singer wrote, including a link to the official press release with further details of the birth. Mikaela reportedly weighed in at six pounds and seven ounces.
This past summer, Fonsi broke his baby news via a written statement to his fans. “Today I would like to share with you the beautiful blessing that God has given me, which has brought much happiness to our lives. With excitement, Agueda and I anticipate the arrival of our first child next January,” he wrote. “From the bottom of our hearts, we appreciate the love that we have received and look forward to enjoying this great moment with our families.” Mikaela came a little early, but still, we think she’s probably the best Christmas present Fonsi has received.
In his most recent statement, Fonsi was described as “moved and proud” to begin this new chapter in his life as a father. Who wouldn’t be?? We wonder if Mikaela will take after her father’s musical talents.
Congrats to Fonsi and Lopez on their new bundle of joy!
