T.I. and Tiny Name Daughter Heiress
Rapper T.I. and Tameka "Tiny" Cottle welcomed their third child over the weekend -- the seventh in their blended family
Rapper T.I. and Tameka “Tiny” Harris have welcomed their third child together.
The couple revealed the name of their newborn daughter Heiress Harris on their social media accounts Monday.
“My newest Blessing! Heiress & her daddy,” Tiny captioned a photo on Instagram of the rapper giving his baby girl a bottle.
Shortly before his wife’s post, the proud dad shared a shot of himself holding his daughter’s car seat, writing, “Welcome home Heiress!!! The ride begins … #FamilyHustleOverErrrthang.”
After reports of the birth circulated, the 35-year-old rapper took to Facebook in a since-deleted post to condemn social media users for posting about the birth before he or Tiny could “properly” announce it, confirming the baby news in the process.
“What really pisses me off is that I’m in South Carolina & my wife just had our baby in Georgia which is really not something anybody could help & the fact that everybody gets to announce that ‘T.I. & Tiny welcomed their baby into the world’ EXCEPT T.I. & Tiny. Couldn’t even wait until we properly announced it but #Lucky7 is here!” the rapper wrote in the post on Saturday.
In a statement to PEOPLE, Tiny revealed more details about the new addition’s arrival.
“Yesterday, March 26th, at 2:58PM we welcomed a beautiful baby girl that weighed in at 5 lbs. In true Harris fashion, our baby girl made us all HUSTLE, making a surprise early entrance. While we expected her to arrive around April 20th, our PERFECT baby girl decided March 26th was the right time for her DEBUT,” she said.
“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!! We are looking forward to more exciting times with our #Lucky7.”
FLASHBACK: T.I. And Tiny Sum up Their Sex Life in a Hashtag
The new addition marks the seventh child in the couple’s blended family.
Cottle, 40, posted a photo on the “special day,” posing alongside Kandi Burruss.
“My sis @kandiburruss came to visit me on this special day! I love her 4life!! #Lucky7,” Tiny captioned the snap.
“It’s going to add to a house of madness,” Tiny previously told PEOPLE of the new baby. “A new baby is something we haven’t had in seven years — it’s going to be a little chaotic.”
T.I. added: “It’s definitely going to stink the house up a little bit! But in the end, all additions make the family closer and better.”
