(Los Angeles, California) -- Teddy and Tina Campbell, one half of the Grammy Award-winning platinum-selling super duo Mary Mary, recently welcomed their second child on Monday June 11th.

"Meela Jane Campbell is here and our home is complete" said Tina Campbell, already the proud mother of Laiah Simone(age 3). "We may try for one more, and pray it's a boy so Teddy can have his little drummer." Although she entered the world a bit prematurely, baby Meela is healthy, strong, and a beautiful addition to the ever-growing Campbell Clan.

No strangers to large and growing families, sisters Erica and Tina Campbell (Mary Mary) were born in Inglewood, California to a family of nine children. First singing publicly in a local church choir in LA, they received their first break in 1998 with a song on the "Prince of Egypt" soundtrack.

In 2000, Mary Mary's platinum debut album, Thankful--featuring the hit "Shackles (Praise You)"--earned numerous awards including a Grammy for Best Contemporary Gospel Album, three Dove Awards, six Stellar Awards, a Lady of Soul Award, and a Soul Train Award. Incredible, their second album, became the nation's #1 Top Christian Album in 2002 and featured the Dove Award-winning hits "In The Morning" and "Thank You," featuring Kirk Franklin.

Most recently, the R&B/Gospel duo crossed over into Top 10 pop territory when the group's self-titled new album, released in July 2005, debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 best-selling album chart, the highest Top 200 chart position in the group's career. (Mary Mary's previous albums--2000's Thankful and 2002's Incredible--peaked at #59 and #20, respectively.) When the album subsequently debuted at #1 on the Billboard Gospel album sales chart, the album became the best-selling Gospel debut of 2005.
