Lalonne also joined in on the announcement. “Happy Birthday Maverick,” she wrote. “Our precious baby girl is here! You were determined to be here. My IUD couldn’t stop your spirit & being. Truly Blessed!!!”

The couple calls out IUD, which is an intrauterine device used to prevent pregnancy. It’s supposed to have a high preventive rate but didn’t work for the couple.

Maverick joins brothers Lord and Heir. The-Dream also have five other kids outside of his current marriage: He has three children with ex-wife and R&B singer Nivea, a daughter with ex-wife Christina Milian, and a son with ex-girlfriend Lydia Nam.

Congrats to the happy couple!

As far as the music side goes, The-Dream is prepping his next studio album, Love Affair, the follow-up to last year’s ‘Love You to Death’ EP.
