A confirmation has just been released by singer Babyface that he and his back-up dancer girlfriend Nicole Pantenburg have welcomed their first child together, a baby girl. The infant, named Peyton Nicole Edmonds, was born on September 9 in Los Angeles at 6:55 P.M. She weighed in 5 lbs., 7 oz.

Confirming the birth of the baby to People magazine, Babyface said in a statement, "Nicole and I couldn't be happier to have a new baby girl in the family." He added, "my two sons are thrilled to have a little sister" referring to sons Brandon Edmons and Dylan Michael, whom he has with then wife Tracey Edmonds.

Babyface and Tracey, a film producer, got married in September 1992. They announced their separation in October 2005 and she then filed for divorce in January the following year, citing irreconcilable differences. They had their divorce finalized in June 2007.

It was after that that Babyface's romance with Nicole was exposed by the media. The lovers announced in May 2008 that they were expecting their first child together. As for Tracey, she was briefly married to famous comedian Eddie Murphy in January 2008. Since then, she has been linked to celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito.

I hope he is happy now, and gotten over stupid Tracy. Like most of those Hollywives, Trach was nothing unti she met Babyface. A struggling very skinny, dark chocolate video vixen. She cleaned up with his money. She's not too smart to think Eddie was going to marry her.

No relationship is guaranteed, it doesn't matter what you are or what you do, it's all a chance. So just wish them the best and stop being so negative, haterz.

Babyface is a fool and stupid when it comes to choosing women who care for him. A backup dancer and a video face (Tracey). He met Tracey when she appeared in his video. Babyface should go to church and maybe he will strike gold with a Christian woman.

I think that is so great that they have a child together. Babyface is one of my favorite singers and I couldn't be happier for him.
