Experiencing fatherhood for the first time is one of the most unforgettable moments in a man’s life. So it’s no surprise that new dad, Ray J, wanted to let the world in on the special day he and wife, Princess, welcomed their first child into the world.
Ray J and Princess were very public about the challenges they experienced with conceiving, even documenting some of what they went through on season 4 of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop L.A. reality series. When all was said and done following the end of last season, the couple was elated to share in November 2017 that they were expecting their first child.
Fast forward to June 2018 and the former newlyweds are now proud parents of a beautiful baby girl named Melody, born on May 22, 2018.
Still basking in the indescribable feeling of being a first-time dad, Ray J. shared a heartwarming music video for his previously released single, “Melody,” dedicated to his daughter. In the video, the 37-year-old singer walks fans through the day baby Melody was born, sharing intimate footage from the delivery room, as well as the moments before and after Princess gave birth.
