Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Baker Mayfield and his wife Emily made a special announcement Saturday.

Baker and Emily are officially first-time parents, welcoming a baby girl, Kova Jade, who was born Tuesday.

“Baby girl joined us Tuesday night just before 7:30pm,” Emily wrote in an Instagram story post.

“She is truly everything we prayed for, and more. We’re enjoying life as a family of 4 – Fergus is so gentle & curious, Daddy is so smitten, and Mama wants to pause time & make these days last forever,” Emily captioned the photo, showing Baker holding his newborn daughter, alongside the couple’s dog, Fergus.
