The singer and his Australian model wife, both 32, welcomed a brand new baby boy on Saturday (20 December) and named him Evander.
Example, real name Elliot Gleave, announced the happy news on his official Twitter and Instagram accounts with a super cute picture of the newborn baby clutching daddy's finger.
He wrote: "Our son Evander Maxwell Gleave was born at 2.06am 21.12.14 (Australia time). Mother and child are both gorgeous @mcnaughty you're a diamond."
The 'All The Wrong Places' rapper later added: "1000's of lovely messages from so many of you regarding my newborn son. Overwhelmed. Wish I could thank you all personally."
Fans were keen to support the star, with messages including: "Congratulations! Welcome to the best club in the world! x."
Another fellow parent wrote: "Congrats! Make sure you grab every moment. Time slips away so fast. My daughter is 16 in April, it seems no time since she was a new born xxxxx."
Just a week before, Example had shared a picture of his pregnant wife - STUNNING! - with the sweet message: "Helllloooooo (from the 3 of us can't wait to meet the little person inside the belly, any day now) @mcnaughty."
He and Erin got engaged in November 2012 and were wed in her native Australia on 18 May 2013.
