Rock ’n’ roll baby! Bobby Brown and his wife, Alicia Etheredge, named their newborn daughter Hendrix Estelle Sheba, Entertainment Tonight reports, citing the birth certificate.

Brown, 47, and Etheredge welcomed their baby girl earlier this month. "Just had a baby girl, 10 pounds," the New Edition singer captioned an Instagram photo of himself on Thursday, July 21.

Brown and Etheredge got engaged in 2010 and married two years later in Hawaii. The couple are already parents to son, Cassius, 7, and daughter Bodhi, 12 months.

"Everything's good! I just had a baby girl!" Brown said in a video obtained by ET on Friday. “I’m grateful.”

Brown also has four other children. He’s dad of Landon, La’Princia and Bobby Jr. from previous relationships. His daughter Bobbi Kristina died at the age of 22 in July 2015, six months after she was found unconscious in her bathtub at her Georgia home. (Bobbi Kristina’s late mom, Whitney Houston, died in a similar way at age 48 in 2012.)

Last month, the Every Little Step: My Story author opened up about Bobbi Kristina during an interview on 20/20. The L.A. coroner ruled her death an accidental drowning, but the musician continues to believe that Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend Nick Gordon was involved somehow.

“We should have been better. We could have been better,” he told ABC’s Robin Roberts. “It’s not a mystery to me,” Bobby told Roberts. “The same thing that happened to my daughter is what happened to Whitney … There’s only one person that was around both occasions, only one person who says they were there to protect them … and he didn’t.”

Gordon, 20, has maintained his innocence. In March, his lawyers released a statement about Bobbi Kristina’s death. "The truth is that Nick tried to save Bobbi Kristina's life. The truth is that Nick cooperated with law enforcement since day one," Joe Habachy and Jose Baez told Us Weekly at the time. "The truth is that no one loved Bobbi Kristina more than Nick and no one has suffered more as a result of her death than Nick."
