The often controversial singer/actor and his wife, Janine, welcomed a baby girl into the world on Monday.

The proud dad took to Twitter to share the exciting news:

"Born. Monday morning. 08:11. Romy-lee Hofmeyr. 2.9kg. All well. Tears. Joy. Tiny Ms World for me..."

Hofmeyer has five other children from previous relationships.

He also thanked his fans for the well wishes.

Ahead of their daughter’s birth, Janine surprised Hofmeyer with a cute baby romper to wish him a happy Father’s Day.

Steve announced their pregnancy on Christmas Day describing the news as “the biggest Christmas present ever”.

The couple tied the knot in a fairy tale wedding ceremony in 2014.

Last year Janine shared this heartfelt message on Facebook as she announced the pregnancy.

“Everyone, I am going to become a mommy to a beautiful little princess!!!!! Except for my wedding day, it was the best day of my life when I heard. I am soooo happy the news has finally been broken, and soooo grateful for every beautiful wish. Her name is Romy-Lee (named after my mother) and I can’t wait to start shopping.

“Wow, I am so excited today, there is still a very painful part deep in my heart. I wish I could give a firm hug today to every woman who still hopes and tries, and even to those who can never have children. Because I know the hell you are going through."
