Eric Benet Shows Daughter Lucia Bella to the World

January 20, 2012  |  

It will be a month tomorrow since Eric Benet welcomed his daughter Lucia Bella to the world. The singer tweeted pics of his wife, Maneula Testolini, breastfeeding their newborn baby, but Eric gave the world their first real look at his baby girl in an exclusive interview with US Weekly.

Eric said he’s beyond excited to be a new father.

“Manuela and I are overjoyed with baby Lucia! She is perfect in every way and, as expected, Manuela is truly proving to be the world’s best mother. She is so attentive, nurturing, and loving. Little Lucia gets a doting big sister in India, and an older, wiser daddy this time around.”

The 45-year-old married Manuela July 31, 2011, and although Eric’s touring schedule kept them apart during their first few months of marriage, it sounds like the proud father is completely dedicated to being there for both of his girls. He previously told Essence.com:

“It’s difficult being apart, but it’s been great when we’re together. Manuela and I have the rest of our lives to share.” And now a gorgeous baby girl as well.

What do you think about Eric Benet and his family? Has he moved out from under the shadow of his sex addiction?
