Bobby Brown is father for seventh time

Bobby Brown has become a father for the seventh time.

The ex-husband of the late Whitney Houston has confirmed his wife Alicia Etheredge has given birth to their third child together, a daughter weighing in at 10lbs.

Confirming the news on his Instagram account, he wrote: "Just had a baby girl 10 pounds"

The R&B singer attached a picture of him with a wide grin on his face to the baby news announcement.

It is not yet known what the couple have decided to call their little one.

The 47-year-old star and Alicia also have 12-month-old daughter Bodhi and son Cassius, seven.

Bobby was married to Whitney - who tragically passed away in 2012 at the age of 48 from an accidental drug overdose - from 1992 until 2007 when the superstar singer filed for divorce and received custody of their then 14-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina.

Bobbi - Bobby and Whitney's only child together - sadly passed in July 2015, nearly a year to the day his latest daughter was born.

The 'Candy Girl' hitmaker also has children Landon, 27, La'Princia, 26 and Bobby Jr., 23, from previous relationships.

Bobby - who has battled drug addiction in the past but is now clean - recently claimed he once had sex with a ghost who "mounted" him in a house he bought in Georgia.

He said: "I bought this mansion in Georgia ... this was a really, really spooky place. But yes, one time, I woke up, and yeah, a ghost. I was being mounted by a ghost.

"I wasn't high. I was not trippin'."
