Four weeks after Eric Benet and wife Manuela Testolini welcomed a baby girl in L.A., the couple decided to share the first image of their pride and joy exclusively with Us Weekly.

"Manuela and I are overjoyed with baby Lucia!" says Benet, who has another daughter, India, from a previous relationship. "She is perfect in every way, and as expected, Manuela is truly proving to be the world's best mother. She is so attentive, nurturing and loving. Little Lucia gets a doting big sister in India, and an older, wiser daddy this time around."
