(Newser) – A popular Miami priest who left his Catholic order after admitting to a long-time affair is celebrating the birth of a baby girl with his wife. "With thanksgiving to God, the giver of all life, my wife and I announce the birth of our beautiful baby daughter, Camila Victoria Cutié," the couple said in a statement. "There is great joy in being a Father, who is also a 'father,'" quipped Father Alberto Cutié.

Cutie last year switched from his Catholic order to become a priest in the Episcopalian religion, which does not require a vow of celibacy, reports People. He married his lover a short time later. He's known as "Father Oprah" in the Miami Spanish community because of the advice he gives to the lovelorn on local radio and TV. Click here for more on Father Alberto Cutié.
