Tyrese Gibson and wife Samantha welcomed their first child together a healthy baby girl named Soraya Lee Gibson on October 1. The actor confirmed the news via Instagram sharing a picture of his precious angel’s footprints.
The Fast and the Furious actor wrote alongside the post, “Father God we love you for delivering on your promise princess Soraya Lee Gibson is here … 8 pounds 6 oz our lives just changed forever … #PrincessGibson #ShaylasLittleSister."
Gibson, 39, posted a second photo of him sleeping alongside his angel who was fast asleep in her bassinette. Gibson wrote how in awe he was of his wife Samantha, “My wife is the real champion here I have never seen this level of strength and willpower … She was in labor for 30 hours … 8 pounds 6 oz later … We know our daughter came here to change things."
Tyrese Gibson added, “We wanna say thank you and we appreciate your prayers and love … We are both overjoyed with our new angel Soraya Lee Gibson and exhausted!"
The Transformers star kept his social media following in the loop up until the arrival of Soraya. On Saturday evening Tyrese took his wife out on one last night date before becoming parents to their new bundle of joy. The actor revealed to his Instagram followers, “Starbucks, dinner and a movie. The countdown is real for our angel. She’s coming any minute, any moment."
Tyrese and Samantha said ‘I do" in a surprise ceremony on February 14, 2017. In April the couple revealed they were expecting their first child together. Tyrese is already a father to his 11-year-old daughter Shayla from a previous marriage.
In an interview with PEOPLE back in April the actor gushed about the impending arrival of his second child, “Both of our love and energy and magic and families are bonded forever because we’re going to have this child. It’s unbelievable."
