Ray J, 37, and his wife Princess Love, 33, shared exclusive photos of their newborn girl with OK! Magazine. Not only do we get to see adorable pictures of their new bundle of joy, but the couple shared her name as well.
Yesterday, Princess shared a lovely family portrait on Instagram with the caption “Introducing Melody Love Norwood 💕 @okmagazine.”
Although sound asleep in the photo, OK! magazine was able to capture Melody with eyes wide open. Born on Wednesday, May 23 at 2:52 pm PT, the one-week-old infant even displays a little personality, too.
The little one weighed exactly 7 pounds and was 19 and a quarter inches long when she entered the world, but her arrival took a lot longer than the couple expected.
Princess was in labor for a whopping 24 hours, and as Ray J watched and supported her through it all, he describes it as one of the most incredible experiences of his life.
“This was one of the most incredible experiences of my life,” he said following the birth. “I’m so glad my daughter is finally here! And I can’t wait to begin life as a dad.”
We will be able to see their journey entering parenthood on their VH1 baby special that airs this summer.
And in case you’re wondering what little Melody’s bedroom looks like, OK! captured that as well. With the baby’s name spelled out on the wall and pink being the central theme, this looks like an infant’s restful paradise.
Ray J seems to be overwhelmed by how much love he feels for his new daughter, and I’m sure that for Princess, it can be such a heartwarming thing to witness. Ray J shared a photo last night on social media with a caption that will melt your heart.
“Thank you God for giving me some1 to really live 4. @princesslove I will be with u 4ever and i love you and respect you to another level!” it reads.
