Congratulations are in order for Billy Joel and his wife, Alexis! The newly married couple are now parents of an adorable baby girl, born August 12! What name did they choose for their bundle of joy?
How exciting! Billy Joel, 66, and his wife Alexis Roderick, 33, welcomed a new baby girl into the world on Wednesday, August 12. This is the couple’s first child together — we just know they’re so elated to add this tiny addition to their happy family! Click through to find out what they named their new daughter!
Billy and Alexis went untraditional, but kept things completely lovely when naming their baby girl. Welcome to the world, Della Rose Joel! Della was born at 2:40am in New York (poor mama!), and weighed in at 7 lbs., 6.5 oz. A sweet and healthy little girl! We’re loving that name!
Della joins Billy’s family as his second child, his first being Alexa Ray Joel, 29, his daughter with ex-wife Christie Brinkley, 61. Billy and Alexis announced the pregnancy in April 2015, and were over the moon about their impending parenthood. What an amazing time for them!
Alexis’ pregnancy announcement came when Billy was 65 years-old. It’s never too late, right? The couple opted to keep details under wraps until little Della arrived. We’re thrilled to finally know something about this adorable nugget!
The couple’s little bundle of joy came just after they married at Billy’s Long Island estate on the Fourth of July. What an amazing summer they’ve had! They tied the knot surrounded by friends and family, and had their baby to look forward to the whole time. So beautiful.
