Bryan Adams is in heaven.
The rocker-photographer and co-founder of his foundation, Alicia Grimaldi, welcomed a daughter last month, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
"I'm really proud to announce on 22 April, Mirabella Bunny was born," says Adams, 51.
"She arrived like all good Easter bunnies on Easter Friday," Adams added. "Mother and baby are both well and happy. Thanks in advance for your kind thoughts and wishes."
Adams first revealed
in March that he was to be a first-time father, explaining that Grimaldi "helped me start my foundation years ago and it looks like she'll be running the family now!"
Adams is set to resume his world tour in June, which includes more U.S. dates starting in August.
