A Miami priest who left the Catholic Church after photos surfaced of him kissing his girlfriend on the beach is now the father of a baby girl.

The Miami Herald reports that Alberto Cutie (KOO'-tee-ay) said in an e-mail that Camila Victoria Cutie was born Tuesday. Cutie wrote in the e-mail that there "is great joy in being a Father, who is also a 'father.'"

Cutie is married to Ruhama Buni Cutie and leads the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection in Biscayne Park.

Before the photos surfaced, Cutie, known as "Father Oprah," had hosted a popular cable television show and had an advice column.
