“Haven’t been on IG for a longgggg time but wanted to share with you all our beautiful baby girl — Ramona Rae Lewis, born June 12th!” the producer, 31, captioned a black-and-white portrait taken by Erin Tole Photography of the couple blissfully embracing each other and their newborn.

Lewis — well known for his musical collaborations with Macklemore, including their 2012 smash single “Thrift Shop” — tied the knot with Jackie, his high-school sweetheart, in July 2017 in Washington, according to a blog post from their photographer featuring pictures of the rustic-themed wedding day.

“A picture can’t capture the magic, love and beauty of this day,” Jackie captioned an image of herself and Lewis from the event, where she wore an off-the-shoulder romantic white gown.

Alongside the same photograph, the rapper wrote, “My love for you forever grows.”

The couple jetted off on a European honeymoon following their nuptials, as seen in sunny snapshots on their Instagram accounts taken in Greece and Italy.
