    Kevin Liles and wife welcome daughter

    Kevin Liles isn’t just a new husband anymore; he’s a proud papa, too. According to the New York Post, the mega music manager and his wife Erika welcomed a baby girl named Genevieve early Tuesday morning.

    The birth capped off to a very hectic, yet high-profile, evening that saw Kevin bouncing between a fundraiser for President Barack Obama and the hospital. Did we forget to mention that Erika was in labor during the event?

    Reportedly, President Obama gave Kevin the green light to witness the birth of his daughter. “[Obama] told me to go,” Kevin bragged to the Post. “I said I have stayed as long as I can, and he said, ‘You have served your country.’” It’s not clear what Erika had to say about the night’s events.
