It sounds like Tracy Morgan is going to have his hands full!

The "30 Rock" alum became a dad again on Tuesday, welcoming a daughter with his 26-year-old fiancée, model Megan Wollover, his fourth child, her first. The little girl, who born at 12:03 a.m. in New York City, is named Maven Sonae.

Morgan broke the news on Twitter with this simple message, "Its A GIRL!!!!!" Wollover posted her own message, "Welcome to the World my little Angel: Maven Sonae :-)." A spokesperson told omg! that "mother and child are doing fine."

This is the first girl for the 44-year-old funnyman, who raised three grown sons — Tracy Jr., Malcolm, and Gitrid with his ex-wife, Sabrina. And with a name like Maven, it sounds like she'll be one authoritative little lady, having her father wrapped around her little finger in no time.

"In terms of pure sound, Maven is a perfect strike at the heart of fashion," name expert and author Laura Wattenberg from BabyNameWizard.com and NameCandy.com tells omg!. "You can picture it as a Brangelina-style mashup of [the names] Mason and Raven, with echoes of Ava and Macy.

"But Maven is also a common word, from Yiddish, meaning an expert and aficionado," Wattenberg continues. "Perhaps because of the Yiddish accent, the word has a casual, almost jokey style in usage — opposite to the formality of the synonym 'connoisseur.' So despite the stylish sound, people who use the word seldom consider it as a baby name. It's a positive word, though, with a sense of fun."

And Morgan is ready for the extra fun his new addition will bring to his life. In fact, the actor, who became engaged to Wollover in 2011, told Rolling Stone earlier this year that he dreamed of having a daughter.

“You know what happiness is? Happiness is a simple thing, man," he said to the magazine. "It’s having something to look forward to.”

With Maven now in the picture, he'll have a whole new list of things to look forward to — her first smile, step, and, of course, joke.
