The girl is Monica’s!
On September 5, the ‘90s singer welcomed daughter Laiyah into the world with hubby Shannon Brown. This is the couple’s first child together, but they each have children from previous relationships.
Shannon is a professional basketball player for the Phoenix Suns, but these days he has more on his mind than hoops and baskets.
“I THANK GOD for her!!! JOY has been restored in my LIFE!!!” he Instagrammed along with a photo holding his new bundle of joy.
The couple recently had a star-studded baby shower that featured family and music industry friends, including Ludacris.
We’re not sure if the late Aaliyah was the influence for the name of Monica’s infant daughter, but the two singers were very close back in the day, and Monica often lists her as a musical inspiration.
Do you think she named her daughter after Aaliyah? Tell us below!
