Nicki Minaj's ex Safaree Samuels has become a first-time father and a #girldad, after wife Erica Mena gave birth to a baby girl.

Safaree announced the happy news on his Instagram page on Monday, alongside a picture of himself holding his daughter's tiny hand, WENN.com reported.

"These pass (sic) 24 hrs have been an adventure to say the least!!" he wrote. "I'm a part of the #girldad club now. Perfection is here."

The hashtag #girldad trended after Kobe Bryant previously termed himself a "girl dad" because he fathered four girls with his wife, Vanessa Bryant. One of his daughters, Gianna, 13, died with him in a helicopter crash last month.

Male celebrities who have sons and daughters have incorrectly tagged images of themselves as #girldads. A girl dad is a father who has all girls.

In a post on his Instagram Stories, Safaree apologized to fans after he had to cancel a show when Erica's waters broke. Safaree is pictured above with his ex-fiancee Nicki.

"Sorry to everyone who came out to see me in Rhode Island last night," he wrote alongside a picture of himself on a plane. "But as I was getting ready to leave my wife's water broke."

The baby's name has yet to be revealed.

Erica, who already has a son, King Conde, shot to fame appearing on VH1 show Love & Hip Hop New York before moving to Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Safaree began appearing on the show following his split from "Megatron" rapper Nicki in 2014.
