A baby for "Babyface": Grammy-winning R&B singer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and his girlfriend Nicole Pantenburg have welcomed their first child together, the couple confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.

Daughter Peyton Nicole Edmonds was born in Los Angeles at 6:55 p.m. on Sept. 9, weighing 5 lbs., 7 oz.

"Nicole and I couldn't be happier to have a new baby girl in the family," Edmonds tells PEOPLE. "And my two sons are thrilled to have a little sister."

The singer-songwriter-producer is also the dad to Brandon, 12, and Dylan, 7, with ex-wife Tracey Edmonds.
