Actor Lance Gross and his fiancee Rebecca Jefferson have become first-time parents.

The House of Payne star announced the news on with a black and white shot of his daughter's tiny hand clutching his finger, along with the caption, "Berkeley Brynn Gross Xi.Xx.MMXiV", signifying her birth date on 20 November (14).

Gross shared a follow-up post of himself in a hospital room looking pensively out the window while holding his newborn daughter in his arms.

He wrote, "With you I was born again but I have no problem dying for you. You're Daddy's Little Girl."

Gross and Jefferson have been dating for the past three years. He was previously engaged to model Eva Marcille but broke off the engagement in 2010.
