It’s a girl for Billy Joel and new wife Alexis Roderick. The 33-year-old Roderick gave birth to daughter Della Rose yesterday in New York. The child weighed in at seven pounds, six and a half ounces. 

“It’s a wonderful life,” Billy said in an email to Showbiz 411. “Even sweeter at this age. I’m a lucky man. Some people will disagree. Mostly those who are discontent with the way their own lives went. But, then again, if I listened to those people I’d still be washing dishes at Nick’s Luncheonette in Hicksville.”

Billy and Alexis announced in April they were expecting, and tied the knot over July fourth weekend.

This is the second daughter for the 66-year-old Joel. Daughter Alexa Ray, with ex-wife Christie Brinkley, is 29.

Della can now anticipate dad writing a song using her name, as her step sister Alexa experienced with the song 'Downeaster Alexa' from the album Stormfront.
