Bobby Brown’s wife Alicia Etheredge-Brown has given birth to his sixth child.

The 46-year-old My Prerogative singer has had a rough year, as his daughter Bobbi Kristina, who he shares with late pop star Whitney Houston, has been in a coma for over five months.

But Bobby now has good news to celebrate as his other half Alicia gave birth to a healthy baby girl on Saturday July 11, according to ET Online.

Alicia was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles last Friday and her labour was induced the next day.

This is Bobby’s second child with Alicia, as the pair already share six-year-old son Cassius together. Bobby is now a proud father to six children total.

Meanwhile his daughter Bobbi Kristina is said to be barely clinging to life at hospice.

The 22-year-old has been unconscious and on life support since she was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub at her home near Atlanta, Georgia on January 31. Bobbi Kristina was moved to hospice care on June 24.

In a recent interview, Bobby’s New Edition bandmate Johnny Gill said the singer is struggling to cope with the news that his daughter is unlikely to survive much longer.

"State of mind? In a nutshell, not good. Not good," Johnny told ET. "We just had a conversation yesterday. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy."

Bobby’s entire life has been adversely affected by the tragedy.

He struggled to get through a July 4 performance at the Affordable Old School Concert Series at Wolf Creek Amphitheater in Atlanta, having to stop several times before completing his show.
