Billy Joel and his wife Alexis Roderick welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Della Rose Joel, on Wednesday morning in New York, the singer’s rep confirms to Gossip Cop.

We’re told the couple’s daughter was born at 2:40 a.m., and weighed in at 7 pounds and 6.5 ounces. This is the first baby for Roderick, 33, and the second for Joel. The 66-year-old rocker is already the father to 29-year-old Alexa Ray from his previous marriage to Christie Brinkley. So far, Joel has not mentioned his daughter’s arrival on his social media pages.

Gossip Cop reported back in April that the longtime couple was expecting a baby together. We also busted a false report by RadarOnline alleging Joel and Roderick were going to name their daughter Madison.

As Gossip Cop previously noted, Joel and Roderick started dating in 2009, and got married last month on the Fourth of July during a party at Joel’s Long Island estate.

Gossip Cop will continue to have updates on the birth of Joel’s baby Della Rose, and we send our congratulations to the happy couple.
