Howie Mandel has the very best reason to celebrate: he just welcomed his third grandchild! The America's Got Talent: Fantasy League Judge shared a glimpse at the newest addition to his family on Instagram, and she is pretty darn precious. Take a look below.

How to Watch

Watch America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League on NBC and Peacock.

"My new beautiful granddaughter," the comedian and host wrote on a close-up of the newborn's face as she nestles against her mom, Mandel's daughter Riley Ehrlich. He set the post to "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder, a song the musician wrote about the birth of his own daughter Aisha. 

On Instagram, Mandel's NBC family sent their well wished, with AGT and AGT: Fantasy League host Terry Crews writing, "Congratulations Howie!!!!❤️❤️🔥🔥," and Password's Keke Palmer commenting, "😍😍😍."

The baby girl is the first child for Ehrlich, Howie's youngest daughter. His oldest, Jackleyn Shultz, is his "Howie Mandel Does Stuff" podcast co-host, and the mother of his other two grandkids Abbey and Axel.

“[The podcast] came out of the fact that during the pandemic, we couldn’t see each other—we would spend hours on the phone together, me and Jackie—and we’d be making prank calls, and we would be just laughing, and being inappropriate, and pranking her mom, just having fun,” Mandel explained of the project's origins. “My wife would walk in and go, ‘Who is this for, what is this even for?’ And I’d go, ‘We’re just having fun.'” They recorded their conversations and boom, a podcast was born.

Ehrlich may not be in the entertainment business (she's a fitness coach), but her dad still finds her mighty entertaining. On Instagram, Mandel didn't miss a single opportunity to joke about the newest addition; In December, he posted a picture of Riley shooting an arrow as part of the family's gender reveal, and said in a voiceover, "Three people were injured, two of them were women, so it’s a girl!”

During a visit to The Jennifer Hudson Show, Mandel opened up about about his growing family, announcing Ehrlich's pregnancy and quipping, "We’re having one of those reveal parties…I know it’s a girl, but we’re gonna find out who the father is!" He also joked, "She just turned 13, so we are not as excited as most. But she’s so popular." (Riley is actually 31 years old.)

In a more sincere moment, as Hudson showed him a picture of Abbey and Axel, Mandel confessed, "That’s the joy of my life. That’s all that matters in my life." And now he's got another!
