CONFIRMED: Paulina Rubio Gives Birth to Baby Boy!

Paulina Rubio is a new mommy! Rubio gave birth to a little seven-pound baby boy on Sunday morning at 9:12 a.m. La Chica Dorada named the bundle of joy Andrea Nicolás, after his father, Spanish businessman Nicolás "Colate" Vallejo Nájera.

Paulina's reps confirmed the birth to, telling us: "Paulina and Andrea, who are accompanied by their loved ones, are in perfect condition. The new parents greatly appreciate the support, good wishes and displays of affection they have received throughout this special time and kindly ask for privacy and consideration in order to facilitate Paulina and Andrea's recovery."

Though mommy and baby are doing just fine now, Celestrellas is reporting that Rubio had quite the scare over the weekend. Paulina planned on having a water birth at home, but was rushed to the hospital on Saturday and spent the weekend with doctors working to stabilize the health of the baby. Hospital staff tried to send Rubio home so that she could realize her dream of a natural home birth, but the complications lead her medical team to schedule a c-section.

The new mami and little Nicolás are now resting peacefully with just their closest relatives by their side.

Congrats to the first time Mommy!

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
