                            'Fast and Furious' star Tyrese Gibson shares first photos of newborn daughter two weeks after her birth

Sixteen days after the 'Fast & Furious' star Tyrese Gibson and his wife Samantha welcomed their first child, the actor took to Instagram to share the first photos of their baby girl. Photographed by Jessica Limon, the picture came along with a caption and Gibson did not hold back gushing over his family’s newest “angel” Soraya Lee Gibson. “After embracing her love and joy for the last two weeks, we decided to share our answered prayer,” he wrote in the caption.

39-year-old Gibson told People, “We’re convinced that ‘God must have spent a little more time on her.’ My wife and I are so very proud.” 

Soraya had previously been seen from afar or from behind in social-media posts, snuggled up to her dad. But, this time, Soraya was the center of an A-list professional photo shoot. 

Gibson talked about how Samantha, who is a first-time-mom, is such a pro already. "Nnone of the nurses at the hospital and none of her family or friends have seen her with our daughter and think it’s her first,” Gibson said in the interview. “She’s embraced motherhood so beautifully and naturally,” he added.

Gibson’s elder daughter Shayla, 11, from a previous relationship, was also photographed caressing her baby sister. Shayla wished for a little sister each Christmas for the last five years and she finally “got what she wanted,” Gibson exclaimed.

Here’s a real question...... When’s the last time you prayed a sincere prayer over your children.....?

Samantha, who is a social worker, learned she was pregnant with their daughter in late January, not long after they began trying to conceive. She and Gibson plan to raise Soraya primarily in Georgia, at the same estate where they secretly wed on Valentine’s Day last year.

“We were able to conceive at the right time, I believe,” Samantha told People, adding, "To have the opportunity to really start a new chapter in the way that has happened, I just look to God and I’m like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe that you would plan it this way and you do it so perfectly.’"
