His wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, confirmed Heiress' arrival March 25, telling E! News, "Yesterday, March 26th, at 2:58PM we welcomed a beautiful baby girl that weighed in at 5lbs. In true Harris fashion, our baby girl made us all HUSTLE, making a surprise early entrance," she shared in a statement to E! News. "While we expected her to arrive around April 20th, our PERFECT baby girl decided March 26th was the right time for her DEBUT. My husband, Tip Harris, went from the stage right to the plane from his show in Las Vegas and luckily, made it to Atlanta with time to spare. Our whole clan was together to see our beautiful healthy baby girl make her way into the world. Just the way I like it!!"
She continued, "We are looking forward to more exciting times with our #Lucky7."
Congrats to T.I. and Tameka "Tiny" Harris!
The 35-year-old rapper and his 40-year-old wife, stars of the VH1 reality show T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, welcomed a new baby over Easter weekend, E! News has confirmed.
The child arrived several weeks early. Last week, Tiny posted on Instagram an ultrasound photo of their baby.
"So anxious to meet my new boo #Lucky7," she wrote. "She so active we can barely get a good pic. She won't move the cord out her face. I'm in love with her fat cheeks already! #33wks #&Counting #AprilBaby."
Also last week, Tiny celebrated with her family at a baby shower.
T.I. and Tiny are also parents to Clifford "King" Joseph Harris III, 11, and Major Philant Harris, 7. T.I. has two older sons, Messiah Ya'Majesty Harris, 16, and Domani Uriah Harris, 15, and a 14-year-old daughter named Deyjah Imani Harris from previous relationships. Tiny also has a 20-year-old daughter, Zonnique Jailee Pullins, from a previous relationship.
Tiny had in 2007 given birth to her and T.I.'s daughter Leyah Amore Harris, who was born stillborn.
On Saturday, Tiny posted on her Instagram page a selfie with her friend and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, 39, who gave birth to her first child, a baby boy, with husband Todd Tucker in January.
"My sis @kandiburruss came to visit me on this special day! I love her 4life!! #Lucky7," Tiny wrote.
She had revealed her latest pregnancy last Christmas with an Instagram video showing her with a baby bump, complete with a red bow.
"Merry Christmas!" she said. "Thank you to my family for my wonderful gifts…But most of all thank you for our new heir to the throne. This is the best Christmas gift you could've ever gave me."
"This was not planned at all," Tiny told Essence in January. "It kind of snuck up on me. I was a little shocked but I was okay with it because I was in between, 'Do I want a baby? No I don't want a baby. Do I want a baby?' I guess I did want a baby."
She also said she was "so excited" for Burruss because she had always wanted a son.
"We're always talking about how our kids are going to get to grow up and play with each other as best friends because they're going to be so close in age," she said.
