The baby girl measured 20 inches, the rep added.

“What an amazing, life altering experience! A day of extreme intensity that is filled with raw emotion!” Eric posted to his Instagram account later.

“I am a PROUD husband of such an incredibly tough, loving wife! I am a PROUD daddy to God’s greatest gift on earth … my little princess!”



In September, the Eric & Jessie: Game On reality couple announced they were expecting a baby together, later confirming they were thinking pink.

As for the name, it was an easy call for the duo.

“We knew that we wanted this name even before we knew it was a girl,” Jessie James, who got sexy with her bump, and man, in a GQ spread, said.
