Pharrell Williams and his wife welcome triplets

Now that's a good way to start the new year.

Pharrell Williams and his wife, model Helen Lasichanh, have welcomed triplets, USA Today has confirmed.

"Pharrell, Helen and Rocket Williams have welcomed triplets. The family is happy and healthy!" the Happy singer's rep said in a statement.

The babies greeted the world in early January, Vanity Fair reports, making the couple's eight-year-old son Rocket an older brother.

The babies' sexes and names have not been released.

The pair, who were married in October 2013, broke the news about the pregnancy in September, but were mum on the multiples detail.

The Hidden Figures producer has had an exciting year. The film, on which he also served as songwriter, won for best ensemble at the SAG Awards Sunday night, giving the Oscar nominee for best picture more momentum ahead of the Academy Awards on February 26.
