Former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony wrote an honest open letter after the birth of his new granddaughter Billy Lynn Becerra.

He also posted postpartum photos of his daughter and granddaughter after the operation at hospital. Here’s what he wrote:

“We welcomed our little angel Billie Lynn Becerra on July 23rd!! She came prematurely at 34 weeks and spent a little over 2 weeks in NICU gaining weight and getting strong enough to come home, which she did yesterday!!!

Congrats to my beautiful daughter Elisha, and my son in law Billy, you two are so amazing and strong with everything you’ve been through. And a big thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff at Huntington Memorial Hospital who took such great care of our Billie Lynn!!

“And nothing but big big hugs and love from the Hagar family!! Congratulations Is an understatement, but”
