Chance The Rapper has had a pretty good year: The Social Experiment’s Surf proved you can release music for free on iTunes and his collaboration mixtape with Lil B once again instilled faith in BasedGod.

But the biggest highlight of his year is becoming a father. The Chicago rhymer revealed on Instagram that his son has finally been brought into the world. He announced he was expecting back in July.

Chance also asked for privacy following the life-changing moment:

I got to take my child home. Thank God, her mother, our families, the medical staff at Women’s Prentice and an amazing organization called The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicago. I love this time in my life, and I’ve learned to love better because of it. I wanted make a grandiose and poetic statement with her weight and size and DOB to show how much this means to me, but I think it’d be more appropriate and fatherly of me to just say thanks to those who helped us during this pregnancy, and ask for a little privacy in this time for me and my new family to get settled. 👪

Congrats to the new father.
