It may be Lil' Kim's birthday today -- but she just gave a present to her fans!

The new mom shared the first photo of newborn daughter Royal Reign's face on her WhoSay account to celebrate her own 40th b-day.

"Thank U to all my fans #TeamLilKim #KillerBees #Beehive & friends for the Birthday love," she wrote along with the photo. "I Love U guys so much and we will be together soon again. On my Birthday I want to share something special with U all.... The greatest gift I have ever received. My princess, Royal !!!!! This is her first picture on the day she was born. It was life changing and I want to share a small piece of my pride and joy with U on my special day today!!!"

The rapper welcomed her baby girl on June 9 in Hackensack, New Jersey, the little one weighing in at 6 lbs and 5 oz.

The father is believed to be Mr. Papers, who joined her at her baby shower in NYC (below) -- and
tweeted about Royal's birth as a moment that "changed my whole life."
