Remy Ma has given birth to her first child with husband Papoose.

The 38-year-old rapper revealed on Friday that she and her spouse have welcomed a daughter into the world and she couldn't be happier.

She wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of a pink background emblazoned with the words 'It's a girl!': "The Golden Child is here!!! Thank you @papoose for making me the happiest wife in the planet #BlackLove #RemAndPap  #BabyMackie #ShesMADDDDcute (sic)"

Her husband - who has three children from a previous relationship - shared the same image on his account as he thanked his wife for their daughter and vowed to try to be a "great" father.

He wrote: "I found a new love!!! Yeahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! Thank you Queen @remyma She is beautiful!! Wowwwwwww THE GOLDEN Child IS HERE!!! #thegoldenchild Gonna continue, working on me. So I can be a great father. Happy (sic)"

Papoose - whose real name is Shamele Mackie - had previously taken to his own Instagram account to ask for prayers during his wife's "tough labour".

He wrote: "Tough labor... but my wife is still fighting through it. She's a warrior! Keep us in your prayers! The #GoldenChild is on its way! (sic)"

The couple announced their happy news in July after renewing their vows to mark 10 years of marriage.

In a video shared on Instagram, Remy - who has an 18-year-old son, Jayson, from a previous relationship - said: "Although we told you guys that we were renewing our vows, which we are, we also wanted y'all out here when we told you guys..."

Papoose continued: "We having a baby" while rubbing Remy's stomach.

Remy, wearing a stunning pink and white lace embellished gown, wrote alongside the post: "Oh yea...& then this happened" with a winky face emoji.

The 'Wake Me Up' singer - whose real name is Reminisce Mackie - tied the knot with Papoose  over the phone back in 2008 while she was incarcerated in New York state prison and held a proper ceremony when she was released in 2016.
