Singer and songwriter Billy Joel and his wife Alexis have happily welcomed their second child, Remy Anne, into the world. Just a short while after announcing his wife was expecting, Joel took to Instagram to share the first photos of him and his precious new daughter.
Remy Anne becomes Billy Joel’s third child and third daughter overall, and his second with wife Alexis, whom he’s been married to for just over two years now. His first daughter with Alexis, Della Rose, came just one month after the two were married.

Joel’s eldest daughter is much older, as Alexa Ray Joel is now 31 years old, and was born back when Billy was married to his ex-wife, Christie Brinkley. Joel, 68, has been married four times, and one other time in between his marriage with Brinkley and current wife Alexis.
Both Joel and his daughter Alexa Ray accompanied wife Alexis in the delivery room, helping offer their support during this important life moment.
Joel has already gone on record to say that he’s been ecstatic to raise his now 2-year-old daughter Della Rose. “I hang out with her and watch her little wheels spin,” he said in an interview. “She’s a hoot. She’s a funny kid. She loves to laugh. I like to make her laugh.”
This will surely bring even more happiness to the family, as well as a new sibling for little Della Rose. Here’s to wishing them the best in raising both of their young children!
