Billy Corgan has had a wild year, and now he can add another milestone to his busy 2018.

Corgan took to his Instagram to announce the birth of his daughter, Philomena Clementine Corgan, which exactly what you’d expect the daughter of Billy Corgan to be named.  (If she were named something pedestrian like Jill or Susan, wouldn’t we all be just a little disappointed?)

In the photo’s caption, Corgan wrote, “Please welcome PHILOMENA CLEMENTINE CORGAN, the latest addition to our family! Pictured here with her brother, Augustus Juppiter, this makes 8, counting Chloe, Angelface, Diamondbaby, Chin Chin, Ling Ling and yours truly.I’m so lucky to have a great partner in @chloemendel, who juggled raising our son, pregnancy with Philomena, whilst building her fashion line (@maisonatia) and navigating my being gone so much with SP in 2018. Oh, and then there’s wrestling!! What a year! @pawschicago @smashingpumpkins @nwa

Not only did Corgan praise partner Chole Mendel, he also managed to plug her own fashion line and his own wrestling ventures.  Classic!
