Model Christie Brinkley, wife of rock singer Billy Joel, has given birth to the couple's first child, a spokeswoman said today.

The 6 1/2-pound girl, as yet unnamed, was born in a Manhattan hospital at about 11:45 p.m. Sunday, said the spokeswoman, Geraldine McInerney. She said Brinkley, 32, was "somewhat tired and totally jubilant" and Joel, 36, "absolutely thrilled to death."

Joel, a Grammy-winning songwriter, dedicated his hit, "Uptown Girl" to Brinkley, and she appeared in the video version. They were married last March aboard a yacht in New York Harbor.
