Constantine Maroulis...THIS is fatherhood.

The former American Idol contestant and his girlfriend Angel Reed welcomed baby girl Malena James Thursday night, reports People. This is their first child together.

Malena was born at 11:06 p.m., weighed 6 lbs., 11 oz., and measured 19 inches long. The 35-year-old Rock of Ages star told People:  "Sometimes Christmas comes early and we're so lucky to get the greatest gift a few days early. Angel and I are thrilled to welcome our perfect baby girl into the world today. Mom and baby are healthy and I couldn't be more excited to ring in 2011 this way."

Constantine and Angel met last year while starring together in the Broadway musical Rock of Ages. Congratulations to the new parents!
