Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi and Spanish model Agueda Lopez have had their first child together, a little girl they named Mikaela.

The 33-year-old artist announced on his Web page that Mikaela was born at 1:46 p.m. Tuesday in a Miami hospital.

“Both Agueda and Mikaela are in perfect health,” said Fonsi, who added that he felt “very emotional and proud to begin this new chapter in ... life as a father.”

The couple expressed their gratitude “from the bottom of our hearts (for) the lovely wishes and messages of support (we) have received,” although they also asked for “privacy to ensure that mother and daughter have a quick recovery.”

In July, the singer and the model announced that they were expecting their first child, an event that Fonsi called a “beautiful blessing” that “fills our lives with joy.”
