Tiësto is a new dad.

Following her announcement of the pregnancy back in May, Tiësto's wife, Annika Backes Verwest, has now given birth to a baby girl. The dance music legend took to social media yesterday, November 12th, to share photos of baby Viola and also swoon over Annika, calling her a "real champion."

"Say hi to my daughter Viola Margreet Verwest," Tiësto wrote. "She gives me feelings I never knew I had in me. And her mom is a real champion. How can you look so pretty after just giving birth?!"

No word yet on whether or not Tiësto and Viola will collab on a new track. Check out photos below.
