Hello, New York — and hello, baby!

Newly signed New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker and his wife, country singer Jessie James, welcomed their first child on Tuesday morning, March 18, E! News confirms.

“Jessie went into the hospital yesterday at 3:30 p.m. and at 5:36 a.m. this morning, Vivianne Rose Decker was born, weighing 8 lbs., 2 oz. with a full head of hair!” a rep says, adding baby girl measured 20 inches.

“Both mom and daughter are doing well.”

“What an amazing, life altering experience! A day of extreme intensity that is filled with raw emotion!” Decker posted to his Instagram account. “I am a PROUD husband of such an incredibly tough and loving wife! I am a PROUD daddy to God’s greatest gift on earth, my little princess!”

In September, the Eric & Jessie: Game On reality couple announced they were expecting a baby, later confirming they were thinking pink.

But it didn’t take long for the parents-to-be to decide on a name for their daughter.

“We knew that we wanted this name even before we knew it was a girl,” James, who got sexy with her bump — and Decker — in a GQ spread, said at the time.
