Fetty Wap and Masika Kalysha have welcomed a baby girl into the world.
The former Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star announced the arrival of her daughter on Twitter on Wednesday morning, and shared her first picture on Snapchat.
'She’s here. I’ve never seen anything so perfect in my entire life. I’m so in love with you #KBM,' she tweeted after giving birth. 'Best day of my life @fettywap ❤️ #KBM'.

'KBM' turned out to be the baby's initials: Khari Barbie Maxwell. Fetty's real name is Willie Maxwell II.
TMZ reported that the 24-year-old flew from New Jersey to Los Angeles and drove straight to the hospital to be by her side during the delivery.
It is a marked change for the Trap Queen hitmaker, who originally denied he was the father.
'I wasn’t just no random dude in the club. You know what I’m saying? She knew I was gon’ be there,' he told The Shade Room when the 30-year-old first claimed he was the dad. 'Congratulations to her and whoever is the [father].'

However he did confirm he was back on the West Coast - and that he was happy about it - when he tweeted on Tuesday night: 'Something bout this California air' with a smiling emoji.
Over the weekend, Masika posted a snippet of the song she and Fetty collaborated on - Andale - joking that it was a throwback to when it was made '9 months ago'.
'(P.S. This song was done more than 9 months ago I'm just being funny calm the f@&k down sensitive ass people),' she added.

'But this my love is your official eviction notice. It's time to give momma back her belly. I can't wait to hold you... Any day now... #KBM.'
Masika previosly revealed she had asked her former lover - who already has son Aydin, four, and daughter Zaviera, 12 months, from past relationships - to undertake a test to prove paternity on multiple occasions but he refused.
'I tried to demand him taking a paternity test. He doesn't want to take one,' she previously said. 'I asked him seven times, 'Will you just volunteer and do it?' He refuses.'
