Congratulations are in order, because there's another proud papa in the house!
Extra host A.J. Calloway has welcomed his first child with his wife, Dionne.
The baby girl, named Amy Belle, arrived on Monday, August 12.
“We are so thrilled,” said the new dad of his bundle of joy.
“I am still coming down from the moon … I now know what it feels like to have heaven in my arms.”
Prior to Amy's birth, he got some expert advice on parenting from new dad Channing Tatum, during an interview for White House Down.
"I'll give you some baby advice: You're not going to do anything for the first six months," Channing told A.J. "You're just like, 'Can I have the baby at some point today?' You're never going to be so excited when something poos."
A.J., the former host of BET's 106 & Park, first announced Dionne's pregnancy on Instagram in January and proposed to her three months later. The couple tied the knot in June 2013 in a small ceremony officiated by A.J.'s cousin, Pastor Daniel Keyes.
Best wishes to the happy family!
