breaking! Kobe Bryant's 13-Year-Old Daughter Also Dead in Helicopter Crash

There's the doting new dad again!

Macklemore is seen carrying his and wife (yes, wife) Tricia Davis' baby daughter, Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty, in a baby carrier an MTV News mini-doc titled Macklemore: Fully Human, posted on the outlet's YouTube page this week (watch above, at 6:32 and 7:14).

Two weeks ago, the 32-year-old rapper, whose real name is Ben Haggerty, announced that the child was born in late May and Davis revealed, via an adorable Instagram photo of the proud dad with their baby, that she and the rapper got married in June after a more than two-year engagement.

"She's a big baby," Macklemore told MTV News. "She's a 10-pound baby, and [with] a big-ass head and I was like, 'This is, this is my child.' It's this unconditional love that happens instantaneously."

"I try to take her on a walk in the morning," he added. "Get some coffee, walk back, put in a mile and a half or something like that. I feel like she really likes Snoop Dogg. Like, 'Gin and Juice,' for some reason, just calms her down...and I've used it a couple of times and it's like, worked every time."

Macklemore and Davis announced her pregnancy in January with a heartwarming, emotional video. In the mini-doc, which was filmed in late July, Macklemore also goes into detail about what he went through when he suspected he would become a father, following comments made in his baby announcement. He had revealed in an emotional website post that he prayed while Davis took a pregnancy test.

"It was just like, you know, 'God, I'm not ready for this right now. I am not ready to be a father, Like, I can't even get sober,'" he told MTV News. "And it was one of those, just like, 'Please, like, don't, you know, please don't be pregnant.' And I heard tears from the bathroom. I was like, 'Oh my God, I know what those tears was quickly this, like, wake-up call."

Macklemore, who has battled substance abuse in the past, had revealed to the print publication that had told Complex magazine earlier this summer that he relapsed with pills and pot last year.

"I got sober and I got happy again," he told MTV News.
