The girl, Brown's second child, was born at 12.11am local time on Monday (1811 AEST) at St John's Hospital in Santa Monica. "The baby is completely healthy with a good head of hair. No name has been decided on yet, and she is purely known as Baby Brown," the publicist added in a statement. Mother and baby were now resting but face a looming paternity battle.
