Tyrese Gibson And Wife Samantha Lee Welcome A Baby Girl And Give Her An Adorable Name — Photo

His (second) little princess is here! 

Tyrese Gibson and wife Samantha have welcomed their first child together on October 1st. which is a relief considering there wasn’t anything fast or furious about this pregnancy. 

(I know that last part was corny but I’ve been waiting to use it for months now).

Their new little girl was named Soraya Lee Gibson.

The 39-year-old actor/singer took to Instagram to announce her arrival, writing: “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. ”

See the Instagram photo of Baby Soraya’s left & right footprints and his full caption below:

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 #SamanthaGibsonGreatestMotherOfAllTime my wife is the real champion 30 hours of labor I witnessed first hand the strength of a woman..... Thank you Jesus we are so humbled by your grace and love and favor.... #Amen

The new addition to the family joins 11-year-old big sister Shayla, Tyrese’s daughter for his previous marriage.


Tyrese and social worker Samantha Lee quickly tied the knot in 2017 on Valentine’s Day. 



They found out they were expecting back in January, but waiting until April to announce the news that they were expecting a baby girl. 

“Both of our love and energy and magic and families are bonded forever because we’re going to have this child,” Gibson, 39, raved in a joint interview with his spouse for PEOPLE. “It’s unbelievable.”

Minutes after her first positive pregnancy test, Tyrese walked in the house as they celebrated together.

“It was me screaming and just being overly excited and just fired up about the news,” he said.

#Tyrese and #SamanthaGibson are expecting...for real this time. Congrats! #YBFBabies missk614Poor kid, oops I mean 
They also broke the news to friends and family members by showing them a ‘movie trailer’ that ended up actually being an ultrasound video. 

Tyrese previously shared ae video of his mother-in-law's reaction to learning the baby news via the movie trailer. He captioned the video, "Wait for it.... Samantha’s parents- Overjoyed!!!"


Gibson later stated, "There was no greater reaction than her mom’s reaction. Samantha is her only daughter, and this has been prayers for years and years, for her to get married and find the right one and start a family."

The addition of Baby Soraya is great news for Tyrese after the tumultuous 12 months he’s been having. 


As we have learned, the dynamic between Tyrese and ex-wife Norma Gibson is still a complete and utter disaster.

Recent  court documents in their very ugly child custody battle over 11-Year-Old Shayla revealed that the Fast & Furious actor has suffered severe career setbacks.

The R&B crooner says ever since the mother of his daughter filed “false domestic abuse allegations” against him, his income had dropped 75%. He says it’s been impossible to find employment because of her claims.


The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services looked into the claims but ultimately dropped their investigation. He ended up winning 50/50 joint custody in court, after posting many emotional videos to social media begging not to have Shayla taken away.


He’s been going through it, but we bet it really make him appreciate having both girls around all the more now.

Congrats to the family!
