Twin girls for Sean 'Diddy' Combs and his girlfriend

Sean "Diddy" Combs and girlfriend Kim Porter became the parents of twin girls Thursday morning, with the hip-hop impresario flying in from a movie set in Canada for the birth at a Manhattan hospital, said Combs spokesman Robert Zimmerman.

"Diddy received an early Christmas gift," said Zimmerman. "Both Kim and the girls are doing great."

The first arrived at 7:56 a.m. (1256 GMT), weighing in at 5 pounds (2.27 kilograms), while the second girl was delivered two minutes later and weighed 5 pounds, 4 ounces (2.38 kilograms). The older twin was named D'Lila Star, after Porter's grandmother, while the younger was named Jessie James after Combs' grandmother, Zimmerman said, reports AP.

Combs flew in from Toronto, where he is filming "Raisin in the Sun," and made it "just in the nick of time for the delivery," Zimmerman said.

Combs, 37, already has a son, Christian, with Porter. He's also the father of a son, Justin, with ex-girlfriend Misa Hylton-Brim.
