It may not be a superfight with Anderson Silva, but UFC champ Jon Jones had different, yet delightful news to share with MMA fans following his mysterious tweet late Monday morning.

The reigning light-heavyweight king announced via his Twitter page that his longtime girlfriend Jessie Moses has given birth to another baby girl, tweeting:

At 11 o'clock sharp we gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, her name is OliviaHaven Jones!!!

According to Jones' Twitter page, young Olivia was born with a full head of hair and weighed in at six pounds, 10 ounces while measuring 20 inches long. The champ also stated that the Jones family's newest addition was born two weeks earlier than expected.

Shortly after the birth announcement, "Bones" just couldn't stay away from the social media scene, posting a picture of his child's footprints on Instagram:

 

Little Olivia joins older sisters Leah and Carmen as the couple's third child.

You can catch Papa Jones on Tuesday's The Ultimate Fighter on FX opposite fellow coach Chael Sonnen. The two are set to square off at UFC 159 in April.

Update:

Once again taking to Twitter, Jones posted his first picture holding his newest baby girl.
