Congratulations to Sophie B. Hawkins, who welcomed her second child this week.

The singer-songwriter, best known for the '90s hits "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" and "As I Lay Me Down," gave birth to a girl — Esther Ballantine Hawkins — on Tuesday. Hawkins, 50, also has a 6-year-old son, Dashiell.

"Dashiell and I are ecstatic to finally be with our beautiful girl; our family is now complete!" the proud mom told TODAY in a statement.

Little Esther, who was born weighing 8 pounds, was born at New York Presbyterian Hospital, the same hospital where Hawkins was born half a century ago — a fun fact that the mom of two tweeted about.

Hawkins announced she was pregnant in February, having undergone in vitro fertilization with embryos she froze nearly 20 years ago.

"I had, you know, spoken to a fertility doctor in New York," Hawkins revealed when she recently visited TODAY. "And she said, 'You're old.' And I said, 'That's the point.' My son has an old mother. Why can't I give him somebody young to be his family for the rest of his life," she told TODAY.

Hawkins added, "She [Hawkins' doctor] said I'm the healthiest pregnant woman. I could've been 30 and had a lot more problems. At 50, I have no problems."
