Nick and Vanessa Lachey are the proud parents of a new baby girl!

The former 98 Degrees singer and wife welcomed baby Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey  on Jan. 5, Vanessa announced on her website, accompanied by a picture of her new daughter’s hand.

“I have been dreaming of this moment for as long as I can remember, the day I was going to meet my little girl,” she writes. “A friend recently told me how magical today was going to be because it’s the day I would meet my best friend. I can’t even begin to tell you how it felt to hold her in my arms for the very first time.”

The couple announced the pregnancy in July when Nick tweeted, “Can’t think of a better way to celebrate 3 years of marriage to my beautiful @VanessaLachey than this! #family,” accompanied with a picture of “It’s a Girl!” written in the sand and enclosed by a heart.

This is the second child (and the first girl!) for Nick and Vanessa, who have a two-year-old son, Camden. Brooklyn weighs in at 7 lbs., 15 oz.

So, is Nick ready for a baby girl? Absolutely! “I do want a girl,” he gushed to PEOPLE back in February, “I think there’s something emotional about having a daughter that I want to experience.” And judging by the wonderfully pink and girly baby shower, Vanessa is just as thrilled to not be the only girl in the family anymore.

Congrats to the happy family!
