Four have become five, as the family of songstress Nancy Ajram this week welcomed a new member.

The Hassa Beek star has given birth to her third child, the 35-year-old revealed to her 19 million Instagram followers on Saturday evening, opening up about her newborn's name.

"Another gift from God and a new ray of light has entered our home!" Ajram wrote alongside a black-and-white shot of her new arrival's tiny feet. "My beautiful Lya, I can't wait for us to walk together your journey and promise to be there for you at all times."

The singer is already mother to two daughters with her dentist husband Fadi El Hachem; Mila, born in 2009, and Ella, born in 2011.

Ajram has previously released songs dedicated to her children shortly after their birth - Ya Rabi Tekbar Mila and Hadri Laabek. On Sunday, the singer teased that a single for her third child would be forthcoming, posting on Twitter on Sunday that a video would be dropping on her YouTube channel on Monday, adding the hashtag #Lya.

"You were anticipated, loved, cherished and wanted. Now that I'm holding you in my arms those feelings have multiplied tenfold," Ajram added in her Instagram post. "Words cannot describe how much we love our precious Lya."

Ajram first announced her pregnancy in August, revealing via Instagram that the "wish" of her two daughters "has been fulfilled".

Stars including Egyptian singer Sherine, Lebanese songbird Elissa and Egyptian musician Tamer Hosny have since sent messages of congratulations to Ajram on her new arrival.
