Bryan Adams and his girlfriend, Alicia Grimaldi, welcomed their second daughter in London earlier this week, the rocker's rep tells Us Weekly.
The pair named their newborn Lula Rosylea. Adams and Grimaldi are also parents to daughter Bunny, 22 months.
"Lula Rosylea decided to arrive at tea time," Adams tells Us in a statement. "Rosylea is cockney-rhyming-slang in London for 'a cup of tea' and the name Lula comes from Gene Vincent's song 'Be-Bop-A-Lula.'"
After receiving congratulatory messages via Twitter Feb. 15, Adams replied, "Thanks to everyone for the kind wishes. Baby and mama are doing well."
In addition to his music career, Adams -- known for hits like "Heaven," "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" and "Summer of '69" -- is also an accomplished photographer. His latest works are documented in the book Exposed, which was released on Oct. 31, 2012.
