Bruce Willis' new daughter was welcomed into the world Sunday in Los Angeles by him and his wife Emma Hemming, according to the actor's representative.
Bruce Willis' new daughter, Mabel Ray Willis, was born 9 lbs., 1 oz., and is the very first child for the couple, who has been married for three years. The couple, through Willis' representative, told People magazine how happy they were at expanding their family.
Willis and Hemming are reportedly "overjoyed about the newest member of their family," according to People. "Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully."
Willis first broke the news publicly that he and his wife were expecting their first child last year, in October. Then, the "Die Hard" actor told reporters that they "[looked] forward to welcoming this newest addition into their family," through his representative.
With baby Mabel Ray, Willis is now the father of four girls. The first three girls, Rumer Willis, 23, Scout LaRue Willis, 20, and Tallulah Belle Willis, 18 were born to his first wife, Hollywood actress Demi Moore.
The news of Willis' happy announcement follows reports of Demi Moore's hospitalization in January after smoking an unknown substance, and her subsequent recovery. Moore visited the renowned Cirque Lodge rehabilitation center in the mountains of Utah to get well, followed by a stay in Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos, according to TMZ.
Moore and then-husband Ashton Kutcher also tried to solve their marital problems at Willis' residence Turks and Caicos last November, reported Us Weekly.
Despite the couple trying to "figure things out," they filed for divorce, and Willis' daughters were there for their mother to lend support as well.
"My mother is on the road to recovery," Rumer told German news outlet TZ-online during a trip to Munich. "It's slow going, but we believe in her."
Willis and Hemming wed in the Turks and Caicos in March of 2009.
