LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Bryan Adams is a dad at 51.
The rocker has just become a parent to a little girl, the Canadian confirmed in a statement to Access Hollywood.
“I’m really proud to announce on 22 April, Mirabella Bunny was born,” the “Boys of Summer” singer said.
“She arrived like all good Easter bunnies on Easter Friday,” he added.
The baby’s mom is Alicia Grimaldi, Bryan’s assistant, and he told Access she’s doing just fine.
“Mother and baby are both well and happy. Thanks in advance for your kind thoughts and wishes,” Bryan added.
Bryan first revealed he and Alicia were expecting back in March via a Tweet, in which he linked to an article titled, “Bryan Adams to become dad at 51,” on the CBC News website.
He later confirmed it further with a statement to Access.
“Alicia Grimaldi and I are expecting a baby,” Bryan’s statement to Access Hollywood read. “She helped me start my foundation years ago and it looks like she’ll be running the family now. Thanks for your support and kind messages, we appreciate it greatly.”
Alicia is a trustee of the Bryan Adams Foundation. She reportedly helped set up the group in 2004, according to CBC News.
Bryan has recently been promoting his 2010 album, “Bare Bones,” which features stripped down versions of some of his biggest hits and favorite songs.
