Shemar Moore poses in the press room during the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards at Madison Square Garden on January 28, 2018 in New York City.

Shemar Moore has officially become a dad for the first time. The S.W.A.T. actor, 52, and his girlfriend Jesiree Dizon have welcomed a baby girl named Frankie.

Moore conveyed his happiness and excitement of his newborn in his caption writing: “FRANKIE MOORE!!!! BABY GIRL in da building!!! Born January 24… at 3:38pm…. 7.1 Pounds… 20 inches…. 10 fingers n 10 toes… Already THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!! I’m a Girl Daddy!!!! HOLY S—!!! DREAMS COME TRUE!! Grandma Marilyn is in heaven puff puff passing, drinking her wine, and doing her happy dance… I LOVE and MISS YOU everyday Mom. Frankie is gonna grow up to be a KILLA!!!

Dizon, a 39-year-old model, has two children from prior relationships — 5-year-old daughter Charli, whom she shares with actor Stephen Bishop and son, Kaiden, from another previous relationship. The actor revealed his exciting baby news earlier this month during his appearance on The Jennifer Hudson Show. At the time, he shared that the baby had a very meaningful due date. “I’m Shemar Moore, 52½ years old. My mother is in heaven, right now it’ll be the three-year anniversary on February 8,” he shared. His mother, Marilyn Wilson Moore passed away in 2020. “And on February 8, I’m going to make one of her dreams come true because, in real life, Shemar Moore is about to be a daddy.”

The audience erupted into applause, with Hudson congratulating the actor on his joyous baby news, saying his mom was “smiling down on him from heaven.”

“I’m so excited. I’m sorry she can’t be here. I was worried for a while that it was a ‘that ship has sailed,’ kind of thing. But God had my back and things lined up.” Moore continued, “It’s going to be the best part of — my life is already pretty grand, but I know whenever God does call my name, once I get this experience, I’ll be able to go to heaven whole.”
