Billy Joel is a proud papa for the third time, welcoming daughter Remy Anne Joel on Sunday night – just a few days after news broke of her impending arrival. Entering the world at 7:50pm at New York University Hospital and weighing in at a gorgeous 7lbs. 3oz., Remy joins big sisters Della Rose, 2, Joel’s first child with wife Alexis Roderick and Alexa Ray, 31, Billy Joel’s daughter from his marriage to Christie Brinkley.
According to a rep for Billy Joel who spoke to People Magazine, both mommy and baby are healthy, happy, and resting quietly. Here’s hoping that Billy gets his wish and that little Remy follows in the footsteps of big sister Della, who is reportedly a champion sleeper who sleeps through the night!
Billy Joel’s Happily Ever After
On July 4, 2015, Billy Joel and longtime girlfriend Alexis Roderick tied the knot in a super secret ceremony on Joel’s Long Island estate. In fact the ceremony, officiated by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, was so secret that not even their loved ones knew that they were attending a wedding, choosing to surprise everyone during their 4th of July bash by exchanging vows.
✨After six years of quiet yet unrelenting devotion / A surprise wedding sets their undivided promise in motion / I’ve never seen Pop more besotted yet contented / Nor his Darling, more luminously glowing / And, sufficed to say / On this glimmering gold-coast day / Many a tear on my hopelessly-romantic cheek was flowing… #GoldCoastGlimmerings #LoveAndLetLove ?Photo Credit: @myrnasuarezphoto
A month after Billy and Alexis married, they welcomed their first child together – Della Rose Joel, who was given a welcome fit for princess by overjoyed big sister Alexa Ray, Joel’s oldest child from his marriage to supermodel Christie Brinkley.
?~Della was copying me… after running up and down the emerald-fields trying to keep up with her, I had to take a little break (I’m not much of a sporty type), so I said: “OK Della, it’s time to go night-night!” and laid down on the grass, and she quickly followed suit!~???????Captured By: @christiebrinkley At The Magical Tower Hill✨
Congratulations to Billy, Alexis, Alexa and Della Rose, and welcome to the world, Remy!
