Reggae singer Collie Buddz this week became a first-time father.

Buddz, aka Colin Harper, is believed to have been at the side of wife Zarah DeSilva as she gave birth to a baby girl at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital on Wednesday. The couple married in May.

They are keeping tight-lipped about their new addition and yesterday declined to speak to the Bermuda Sun.

Buddz, 28, returned to the Southampton home he shares with Zarah for Christmas after a recent tour took him to big-name venues across the U.S.

Zarah, 26, is the daughter of PLP MP and Health Minister Zane DeSilva and works alongside her father at Island Construction.

Mr. DeSilva, who is a granddad for the first time, proudly spoke of his daughter’s pregnancy during his speech at their beachfront wedding ceremony at Elbow Beach Hotel.

The couple met about three years ago through mutual friends and got engaged in April last year on a fishing trip.
