Becoming a mum for the first time is a moment that you’ll always hold dear to your heart. Christina Perri recently experienced that overwhelming feeling of joy when she gave birth to her first child.


The singer-songwriter gave birth to a gorgeous baby girl on January 17, with her supportive husband Paul Costabile by her side.


Taking to Instagram, the new dad shared their wonderful news with fans of the A Thousands Years singer.



Alongside a touching, black and white family photo, he wrote, “The greatest gift we’ve ever known.”


The proud parents named their daughter Carmella Stanley Costabile.


The host shared that it was one emotional day, “Mom and our little principessa are doing great. Dad can’t stop crying!”

During her final trimester, Christina opened up about her pregnancy journey. The Jar of Hearts singer shared, “Growing a baby was nuts! the best, the worst, the most challenging, for sure divine, sometimes scary, totally magical, but no doubt, unforgettable!”


The singer who rose to fame when her music was featured in So You Think You Can Dance and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, married Paul on December 12, which marked four years since they first met.

Paul met Christina when he was working as a reporter, “4 years ago today I met my dream girl in this room. 4 years later today I married my dream girl and best friend,” he shared on their wedding day.


The couple has experienced so many precious milestones since they first met, but we think welcoming baby Carmella into the world has been the best yet!
