Elle Leona Longoria arrived Wednesday night.



Rays 3B Evan Longoria and girlfriend Jaime Edmondson tonight officially announced the birth of their daughter, Elle Leona Longoria.

The baby, delivered Wednesday night after doctors induced labor about six weeks early, weighed 4.1 pounds and measured 18 inches, according to Edmondson's Twitter post, and remains hospitalized.

"Baby Elle is strong & we look forward to the day she gets to go home,'' she wrote on her @jaimeedmondson account.

Longoria is headed back to Rays camp in Port Charlotte.

 "Thank you for the well wishes,'' Edmondson wrote. "It was hard to see daddy leave today.''

Longoria later posted on his Twitter account:

and I thank everyone for their support during the pregnancy! We are so excited! A new Rays fan is now w us!
