Malik, 27, announced their daughter's arrival in September.

"Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful," the singer wrote on social media. "To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x."

In her own celebratory post after her grandchild’s birth, Yolanda called the bundle of joy “an angel.”

My heart is expending with so much love and joy for this little baby girl she is an angel sent to us from above.....” she wrote alongside a sweet snapshot of the newborn grasping her hand.

“Thank you Mommy & Daddy for making me an Oma,” she continued, adding in a sweet shoutout to the happy couple. “I love every minute of it.”
