Ireland, 17, was quick to welcome the happy news, and shared her joy on Twitter.
"I was born October 23. Carmen was born Friday, August 23. ❤," posted the model. She then wrote a touching letter addressed to her newborn stepsister and published it on her Tumblr page.
"Dear Carmen," began the letter. "You have entered the world! Welcome! We have all been anticipating your arrival!
"Girl, you haven’t even met them, but there are a ton of people who care about you... There are so many things I want to tell you, though it is best that you discover those truths on your own.
"There are countless lessons that I want to teach you, but I have faith that you will learn a majority of them on your own journey and they will help you grow."
Ireland then continued by sharing some of her own "little knowledge" about the facts of life, and giving the newborn some treasured advice.
"I love you, Carmen. You have been born into one crazy family," ended the letter. "I promise you I will always be there for you no matter what! Never forget!"
