Fonzworth Bentley, 39, and wife Faune Chambers Watkins are the proud parents of a baby girl, Us Weekly reports. The couple welcomed daughter Zoie Alecia Watkins, their first child, on July 30.

"Faune was in labor for 23 hours and pushed for four-and-a-half hours, all without pain meds," gushed Bentley. "There was no IV or anything. She did amazing and I'm so proud of her."

"We love our baby girl," he continued. "There's nothing like holding a miracle. Besides no pain meds, Faune gave birth at 6:26 a.m., but we left the hospital at 7:30 p.m. that night. Faune said, 'This is how we do it. I want to be home with my baby.' She's a total blessing."

The actor and hip hop personality, who will appear in the upcoming flick Think Like A Man Too, added that he has been enjoying fatherhood bonding with pal Kanye West. The friends and collaborators, who worked together on West's album Yeezus, welcomed their daughters just six weeks apart.

"Talking about being fathers is our number one conversation now," says Bentley. "It's awesome entering this next phase of life with a friend."

Congratulation to the happy couple!
