Kiwi musician Anika Moa has taken to Instagram to announce the birth of her baby girl, born on the day of her wedding anniversary with partner Natasha Utting.

"Marigold Tui Grace Utting-Moa - our light and our star is here!" Moa captioned an image of her hand holding her baby's feet.

"Born on our wedding anniversary - Mon Feb 18.

"We've imprinted like Jacob in Twilight," she joked.

Moa and Utting announced they were expecting in August last year, revealing the gender earlier this month.

"When I conceived, I just knew it was going to be a girl," Moa told Woman's Day.

"I made this baby in my body and the fact that it's a girl is lovely."

The couple also opened up to the magazine about their journey to fall pregnant, explaining that it hadn't been easy for 'Dreams In My Head' singer to conceive for the first time.

"I tried with my first donor for about a year and a half and nothing happened. I just couldn't get pregnant so, finally, I decided to try another way.

"Natasha suggested using her donor, who is Soren's father and we both thought that would be so nice that the two kids had the same father."

"He was really keen and there was no waiting around. He got me pregnant first pop with a $10 syringe. He was like the Uber Eats of sperm donors!"

The 38-year-old is already a mother of three, to Soren, her first child with partner Utting, and twins Barry and Taane, from her previous marriage.
