Monica Talks Baby Girl: ‘I Want To Be An Example To Her’

Monica is really excited about having not only another child, but a daughter. After having two boys, the "New Life" and "Love All Over Me" singer is looking forward to things like manicures and pedicures with her baby girl.

Celebrating her daughter's upcoming arrival during a baby shower in Atlanta Saturday, Monica opened up with People magazine as guests like NeNe Leakes, Ludacris and Keri Hilson enjoyed the festivities.

"I know everything about WrestleMania and Tonka Trucks so I’m excited to share shopping dates and manis and pedis with her," Monica told People. "But I’m really looking forward to teaching her about life. I want to be an example to her like my mother was to me."

As for her daughter's name, Laiyah, Monica says the name has a special meaning, claming she chose the name because "it was girly, feminine and picked by her daughter’s godmother so it has special meaning."
