Billy Joel, 66, is in a new dad state of mind! The legendary crooner just couldn’t wait to show off his adorable baby girl with wife Alexis Roderick, 33, and decided to introduce the world to Della Rose Joel in the most spectacular way possible. Click here to see the insanely cute way Billy and Alexis revealed their daughter’s first photo — Warning: your heart will melt!
This is one of the sweetest baby pics ever! Despite having just welcomed the birth of his second child the day before, Billy performed a live concert in Philadelphia on Aug. 13, during which he treated his fans to the first look at Della Rose. While the 66-year-old singer doesn’t appear in the photo, his wife can be seen cradling the smiling baby from a hospital bed. The wide-eyed little one looks just like her proud papa, sporting a full head of dark chocolate brown hair and big, beautiful brown eyes. Needless to say, she’s going to grow up to be one beautiful lady!
After sharing the first photo of Della, Billy also revealed a photo of all three of his girls — Alexis, Della and his eldest daughter Alexa Ray Joel, 29, before playing a moving rendition of his hit “My Life.” Alexis also took to Instagram to gush about her first-born. The 33-year-old mother posted the baby’s first photo to her Instagram account on Aug. 14 writing, “Della Rose Joel. Thank you for all the love! She’s absolutely perfect! Busy, busy, here at the Joel home but I wanted to share a pic. Love, Alexis.”
Della was born at 2:40am in New York, and weighed in at 7 lbs., 6.5 oz. She is the couple’s first daughter, but the second for the musician, who had Alexa Ray in his previous marriage to supermodel Christie Brinkley, 61. Billy and Alexis announced the pregnancy in April 2015, and were over the moon about their impending parenthood. Alexis’ pregnancy announcement came when Billy was 65 years-old (hey, it’s never too late, right?). The couple opted to keep details under wraps until little Della arrived, which happened to just one month after the happy couple tied the knot at Billy’s Long Island estate on the Fourth of July. Now that’s what we call having a good summer!
