Guess Lil' Kim's royal-themed baby shower had a deeper meaning.

The 39-year-old rapper gave birth to a baby girl, which she named Royal Reign, Monday morning at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey. Entertainment Tonight reports that little Royal weighed in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces, and measured 19.5 inches long.

This is Lil' Kim's first child with her boyfriend of two years, New York-based rapper Mr. Papers.

In May, the songstress had an over-the-top baby shower in New York City.

"Everything had a royal twist," Kim told In Touch Weekly. "At the beginning of the party, I was announced as the Queen with two trumpeters and even wore a crown!"

Mr. Papers also presented his girlfriend with an early push present: a new car!

"I couldn't have wished for a more special day," she raved.

Kim took everyone by surprise when she showed up at New York Fashion Week in February rocking a baby bump.

While Mr. Papers has one kid from a previous relationship, this is Lil' Kim's first. She shared on a 2003 episode of VH1's Driven that she had been pregnant with Notorious B.I.G.'s child but suffered a miscarriage.

Fortunately, Kim's new baby girl is healthy. And with a name like Royal Reign, we wouldn't be surprised if she follows in her mom and dad's musical footsteps.
