The baby – named Della Rose Joel and weighing in at 7 pounds, 6.5 ounces – is the first child together for this couple.

The artist and Alexis announced they were expecting in April. They have been together since 2009 and shocked loved ones with a surprise wedding at Joel’s Long Island estate on July 4th.

Overall, this is the second child for Joel.

The veteran star shares 29-year old daughter Alexa Ray Joel with ex-wife Christie Brinkley.

He was also previously married to film set dresser Elizabeth Weber from 1973-1982 and to celebrity chef Katie Lee from 2004-2011.

We send our very best to daddy, mommy and little Della!
