Congratulations are in order for Wale. Today (Sept. 15), the DMV rhymer shares an Instagram photo of his new daughter, Zyla Moon Oluwakemi.

Folarin shares a caption from the heart to go along with the photo of Zyla in a bathtub. He types, "I wear my heart right on my sleeve in real life and I'm super open wit my feelings .. I got to do better . I got to make changes . I trusted too many people and let too many get close. I allowed myself to become susceptible to Wahala. I'm the epitome of "a work in progress " better or worse.I love my supporters and fans .. I got to figure out many things to improve my trajectory .. I gotta work on being more positive."

Wale welcomed little Zyla to the world on July 22. TMZ reported that Ralph had to cancel a performance in Brooklyn on the 22nd, because his girlfriend Chloe Alexis gave birth early that morning in a hospital in New York. Apparently, the delivery was a long one, since mom went into labor on July 20.

In music-related news, the Maryland native recently put out "One Reason" featuring Eric Bellinger. The joint is club-ready with a message behind it, as well. Ralph shows off a crazy flow with meaningful lyrics as Bellinger kills his vocal duties. Wale's second verse is especially striking. He spits, “You supposed to ride with that nigga, write with that nigga / Hand on the Bible, empower that nigga / Smile at that nigga, crash with that nigga / Movie be dumb as hell so you laugh with a nigga / Cry with that nigga, apply all your effort." The 31-year-old rapper is preparing for his upcoming album S.H.I.N.E. (Still Here Ignoring Negative Energy).

Congratulations again to the happy couple! Give them a shout on social media or say congrats in person if you see Wale around town.
