The world’s cutest dad-to-be is now the world’s cutest and happiest dad! Shemar Moore and his girlfriend, Jesiree Dizon, have officially welcomed a baby girl.

Shemar Moore and his partner, Jesiree Dizon, are happy to announce the birth of their baby girl. The family is very happy and healthy,” a rep for the couple tells PEOPLE.

While appearing as a guest on “The Jennifer Hudson Show” earlier this month, Shemar Moore had the most adorable reaction when he casually dropped the bombshell news that he’s having a baby. And his reaction (along with JHud’s too) is everything.

“I’m Shemar Moore, 52½ years old. My mother is in heaven, right now it’ll be the three-year anniversary on February 8,” he began his announcement. “And on February 8, I’m going to make one of her dreams come true because, in real life, Shemar Moore is about to be a daddy.”

The audience immediately applauded and Hudson almost keeled over from the delightful surprise news. She told him his mom was surely proud of him and “smiling down on him from heaven.”

“I’m so excited. I’m sorry she can’t be here,” he said. “I was worried for a while that it was a ‘that ship has sailed,’ kind of thing but God had my back and things lined up. It’s going to be the best part of — my life is already pretty grand, but I know whenever God does call my name, once I get this experience, I’ll be able to go to heaven whole.”

Earlier this week, Moore shared a video on Instagram showing the sex reveal for the baby, featuring his girlfriend Jesiree Dizon (who is already the mama of two kids, a son and daughter.) The video eventually shows a helicopter flying overhead, with the crowd cheering as pink smoke is released.
