It's a girl for rapper Lil Kim, 39, who became a first-time mom at 9:58 this morning in New Jersey.

And Lil Kim gave her daughter a name that seems a bit more fitting for a child of Prince—Royal Reign. (You can get the full scoop on her name selection at our baby name blog, In Name Only.)

While some celebrities lately have talked about scaling back their careers in the wake of parenthood (including movie stars Kristen Bell and Channing Tatum) Lil Kim told Us Magazine recently that she had no plans to scale back on her music career after her baby arrives. "I'm still going to work. I'm still going to be hardcore," she said. "The baby has made me even more of a beast!"

Congrats to the brand new mommy and her daughter!
