It's A Girl For Monica & Shannon Brown

Many blessing and well wishes to singer Monica and husband Shannon Brown on the birth of their new baby girl, Laiyah!

"I am so honored to announce that baby Laiyah Brown has arrived! Mommy and baby are healthy and well," said Kobe Bryant's wife Vanessa via Instagram. "Congratulations @shannonbrown26 and @monicamylife! We love you guys and we can't wait to meet Laiyah!"

Close friend Ciara chimed in, "I Got 2 See My Sis @MonicaBrown Baby Girl Laiyah! Seriously Beyond BEAUTIFUL! She looks like a doll! Unreal!"

The proud papa also spread the news with a photo of him holding his baby girl with the caption: “I THANK GOD for her!!! JOY has been restored in my LIFE!!!"

Monica and Shannon tied the knot in July 2011 after meeting on set of her "Love All Over Me" video.

Congratulations to the couple!
