Selena Gomez is on day three of big sister duty, and seemingly couldn’t be happier.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, the singer’s mom Mandy and stepdad Brian Teefey welcomed a baby girl earlier this week.

Gomez took to Twitter on Friday evening to formally announce the news, and thank fans for their support.

“Momma, Brian, and me are all so grateful for all your well wishes,” wrote the starlet. “My lil sissy Gracie Elliot Teefey was born on June 12th.”

She added, “Luv you all XO.”

Gomez’s pal Demi Lovato was one of the first to celebrate the news, tweeting Thursday night, “@selenagomez IS A BIG SISTER!!!!!! Everyone congratulate her and her family!!!!!! #CONGRATSSELENA!!!!”

We wish the Gomez-Teefey family well.
