Bobby Brown and his wife Alicia Etheredge-Brown have welcomed another child together.

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.

"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.
