HACKENSACK, N.J., June 9 (UPI) -- Lil' Kim has welcomed her first child.

The 39-year-old rapper gave birth to a daughter Monday morning in Hackensack, N.J. The baby girl weighed 6 pounds, 5 ounces, and Lil' Kim named her Royal Reign. Royal's father is said to be rapper Mr. Papers, a speculation that is unconfirmed.

Lil' Kim announced her pregnancy in February, and told Us Weekly, "I'm so excited! I can't wait to be a mom." Best friend Jennifer Dalton added, "She's always wanted to have a child."

"She's very, very good with kids," Dalton continued. "She loves kids! And she's such a great godmother. She's my daughter's godmother; she has three godkids. That's how great of a godmother she is -- everybody wants her!"

"I'm going to be in there with her when she gives birth," she went on to reveal. "She has a lot of good people around her, but there is only one person allowed in the room with her, and that's me!"
