Macklemore posts sweet Mother's Day video announcing his daughter's birth

Finally! Ever since Ben Haggerty, aka rapper Macklemore, went on an Irish radio station and announced that his second daughter was born in mid-March, we've been waiting for something a little more tangible from the local rapper (who is known for posting quippy videos on his social media accounts when he has big announcements to make). Was it a boy or girl? What is the name? And let's see a picture!

Fittingly, Haggerty and his wife Tricia chose Mothers Day to post the below video which answered all the above questions, and made us cry. Colette Koala Haggerty was born on March 16, 2018. The video shows scenes from the pregnancy, birth, Colette meeting her big sister Sloane, and the happy family bringing her home.

Colette Koala Haggerty was born on March 16th 2018. To witness the strength, endurance and love it takes to become a mother is the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced. Happy Mother's Day to the women that give us life. I love you @baba_g

This video is the next in a long line of posts Macklemore usually makes to alert his fans to big life changes/announcements. You probably remember how he announced they were expecting their second child....

Macklemore and Tricia, who married in June 2015 after nine years together, also took a while to announce the birth of the first daughter, Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty, who arrived a month before they wed.

Big congrats to the whole family!
