Dear @nbonacorsi True love is your soul’s recognition of its counterpoint in another. For years I struggled to find my true self. I was lost and fractured.... but by God’s divine grace I met you. My angel. You pushed me in every aspect of my life to be the best version of me. Not every day has been easy but the one thing I know is that our souls were meant to battle this life together. You inspire me. You make me think in ways I never thought existed. You love harder than anyone I know. You are a gift I thought I never deserved. Everything I’ve never done I want to do with you. I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the reason I look forward to the next day. Happy 30th birthday to the most special person on this planet. This is just the beginning.

On Wednesday, Williams and wife Nikki Bonacorsi welcomed a baby girl.

Along with a precious video of his new bundle of joy, he wrote on Instagram, “Everything has changed!!! Please say hello to Amelia Brooklyn-Rose Williams.”

“First & furmost… I salute my wife @nbonacorsi for bringing our child into this world with such a loving & warrior spirit,” Jay continued. “This experience has blown me away in so many facets.”

Jay closed his post with an interesting tidbit: “Last note… my birthday is September 10th, 1981… but I was born exactly one month early. For my daughter to be born on the day I was suppose too 37 yrs later is beyond amazing.”
