Taipei, July 10 (CNA) Taiwanese-American singer Wang Leehom on Thursday announced the birth of his first child, describing it as something for which he had waited all his life.

In a Facebook post, the 38-year-old said the baby girl "arrived early." Wang and Lee Jinglei, 27, tied the knot in the United States on Nov. 27, 2013, one day after the singer disclosed their romance for the first time.

"I've been waiting for you all my life. And now ... here you are, early bird!" Wang said in the post. "Mother, daughter are both well! Thank you all for your blessings and best wishes!"

The post includes a picture showing the newborn's feet framed by the shape of a heart formed presumably by her parents' hands.

According to the Apple Daily, a local tabloid newspaper, Wang's agent sought to dispute a suggestion that the couple got married only after Lee became pregnant.

"The due date was sometime in August but the baby was born a month early," the agent was quoted as saying.
