Actor Shemar Moore has become a first-time dad.
On Tuesday (January 24), Moore, 52, took to Instagram to announce that he and his girlfriend, Jesiree Dizon, welcomed a baby girl, TODAY reports.
"Ya boy is officially a Dad!!! Dreams come true!! The rest of my life is here!" he wrote on social media.
The S.W.A.T actor initially revealed he had a baby on the way during an episode of The Jennifer Hudson Show that aired earlier this month.
"So I’m Shemar Moore, 52 and a half years old. My mother is in heaven right now,” Moore told Hudson, noting that the anniversary of her death was coming up on February 8. "And on Feb. 8, I’m gonna make one of her dreams come true because in real life Shemar Moore is about to be a daddy."
"I’m so excited. I’m sorry she can’t be here. I was worried for a while that it was a 'that ship has sailed' kind of thing, but God had my back and things lined up," he continued. "It’s gonna be the best part of my — my life is pretty grand, but I know that whenever God does call my name once I get this experience, I’ll be able to go to heaven whole."
On January 9, the former Criminal Minds star shared a video of the baby's gender reveal party. Moore and Dizon, 39, were surrounded by friends and family as they watched a helicopter spray pink smoke, suggesting the pair would be welcoming a girl.
While this is Moore’s first child, Dizon has two children from previous relationships. The couple hasn't confirmed their child's name, but Moore noted in a previous video that if the baby was a girl, her name would be Frankie.
