As previously reported, the couple was expecting a girl this time around and their princess, who they have dubbed #Lucky7, decided to make her grand entry into the world while Tip was out of town.
According to VH1.com, T.I. and Tiny’s seventh child was born on March 26th. The child, a baby girl, serves as the couple’s third child together.
News of the birth first broke via social media, after TheShadeRoom uncovered an Instagram post from Tiny’s niece, who stated:
“My little cousin is here. You know, last night I went to go see my auntie. And she had the baby today,”
Tiny’s niece wasn’t the only one who spilled the beans, Tiny shared shared a social media post of her own, a picture from the hospital with friend and fellow singer, Kandi Burruss:
T.I. later confirmed the news in via Facebook, expressing his disappointment in missing the birth of his daughter and anger in that news of the birth broke before either he or Tiny could share it themselves.
A name for the couple’s baby girl has yet to be announced, but many are speculating that the new addition to the Harris clan will be named ‘Royal,’ which they revealed as the theme of their baby shower & fits in perfectly with the names of their two previous children together, King C’Andre Harris (August 25, 2004) and Major Philant Harris (May 16, 2008).
In case you were wondering, the hashtag #Lucky7 includes King, Major, T.I.’s 2 sons Messiah Ya’Majesty Harris, Domani Uriah Harris and daughter, Deyjah Imani Harris, and Tiny’s daughter, Zonnique Jailee Pullins.
UPDATE 3/28/16 11:00am – Now that the hard part is done, Tiny has issued an official statement though her publicist regarding the birth and reveals that T.I. made it to the hospital just in time for their new arrival.
Yesterday, March 26th, at 2:58PM we welcomed a beautiful baby girl that weighed in at 5lbs.
In true Harris fashion, our baby girl made us all HUSTLE, making a surprise early entrance.
While we expected her to arrive around April 20th, our PERFECT baby girl decided March 26th was the right time for her DEBUT.
My husband, Tip Harris, went from the stage right to the plane from his show in Las Vegas and luckily, made it to Atlanta with time to spare. Our whole clan was together to see our beautiful healthy baby girl make her way into the world. Just the way I like it!!
We are looking forward to more exciting times with our #Lucky7.

FYI Tiny’s statement alludes to the fact that the ‘Clifford Joseph Harris’ Facebook page that referenced that T.I. was upset because others got to tell the world of the birth before they did may be fraudulent.
Her statement ends with the following post script:
There are fake social’s floating around on Tip with erroneous reporting. Please take note of the official social media Handles:
