Shemar Moore is a dad! On Jan. 24, just a few weeks after the actor and girlfriend Jesiree Dizon announced they were expecting, Moore confirmed on Instagram that the couple have welcomed a baby girl named Frankie. The little one is Moore's first child and Dizon's third — the actor and influencer has a 5-year-old daughter, Charli, whom she shares with actor Stephen Bishop, and a son, Kaiden, from a previous relationship.
Moore shared the news on his Instagram alongside a news article from People about the baby's arrival. "Ya boy is officially a Dad!!!" Moore wrote. "Dreams come true!! The rest of my life is here!" POPSUGAR reached out to Moore's reps for additional comment but did not receive an immediate response.

In an appearance on "The Jennifer Hudson Show," Moore shared that his daughter was originally due on Feb. 8 — which will be the third anniversary of his mother Marilyn Joan Wilson-Moore's death.

It's going to be the best part of — my life is pretty grand, but I know whenever God does call my name, once I get this experience, I'll be able to go to heaven whole."
