Justin Bieber’s former girlfriend Jayde Pierce is now a mom!
On Thursday, Jan. 12, the brunette beauty announced on Instagram that she had given birth to a daughter. “Baby Ayla, born 8th January. We are so in love you,” the Brit captioned a photo of the newborn’s foot.
This is the first child for Jayde and her boyfriend Mike Dixon. She revealed she was pregnant in November, writing, “I still can’t believe me and the love of my life have created another life that’s growing inside of me. It’s been the hardest but one of the best times of my life so far. We can’t wait to meet you little baby & we love you so much.”
Later that month, she posted a video showing the moment they found out they were expecting a daughter. “We’re having a girl!!!!! So glad you guys finally know. Thank you for your kind words! Loads of love,” the 21-year-old wrote at the time.
Towards the end of her pregnancy, Jayde admitted to experiencing some discomfort. “You are causing mummy a lot of pain but I know you are worth it,” she captioned a pic of her baby bump at 31 weeks.
Jayde first made headlines in 2015 when she accompanied Justin on a vacation to Bora Bora where he was photographed walking around their secluded villa naked. Images posted to both of their Instagram accounts at the time proved they were in the same location though neither of them ever confirmed they were hooking up.

The beauty blogger was first spotted with the pop star in May 2015, but told The Mirror that the duo was "just friends,” adding, “People think Justin must be a brat and arrogant but he's nothing like that. He's a really tactile guy. He loves cuddles."
