Lil’ Kim Had a Lil’ Girl (And You’ll Never Guess What She’s Calling Her)

Prince George might want to hang on to his nappy. He’s no longer the only “royal” talk of Tinseltown.

But Lil’ Kim can tell you more about that.

The Brooklyn-bred femcee, 39, has been called “The Queen of Rap.” So, it was only natural that she named her first daughter Royal Reign.

The noble newborn made her big arrival on Monday, June 9. Baby Reign was born at 9:58 a.m. at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, E! News reports. The father is reportedly Kim’s longtime boyfriend, New York-based rapper Mr. Papers.

If the consensus around the social network is any indication, Royal Reign could join Apple and Moses Martin (Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin), Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee) and Rainbow Aurora (Holly Madison) as a strong contender for worst celebrity baby name ever. The moniker Reign, however, isn’t as uncommon as you might think.

Willow Smith’s full name is Willow Camille Reign. Producing sensation Timbaland saw his little Reign celebrate her sixth birthday this year. In fact, Lil Kim’s goddaughter is named Reign, too.
