Singer Kelis has given birth to a bouncing baby boy named Knight Jones. The little man weighed in at 7.8 lbs. and was born at around 9 p.m. Wednesday evening in New York City.
A representative for Kelis, 29, told Usmagazine.com, "The beautiful baby boy and his mother are doing wonderful." This is the first baby for the "Milkshake" singer. The singer split with her estranged husband, rapper Nas, when she was seven months pregnant.
As reported earlier, Kelis went into labor early Monday at around 2 a.m. and was unable to make a court appearance on Tuesday morning, where she was scheduled to fight Nas for child support and alimony. She was in labor for three whole days (!) and gave birth naturally.
Afterwards, Kelis Tweeted, "Ok so I did it, he’s 7.8 pounds of the greatest stuff on earth…I was in
labor for 3 of the longest most painful days of my life. I don’t
understand when women say they don’t remember giving birth…I will
remember for the rest of my life. He’s kinda perfect btw." Aww...
Although Nas was not in the delivery room, he was at the hospital when the baby was born and was able to see his newborn son. He has another child, a 13-year-old daughter named Destiny, with ex-fiancée Carmen Bryan.
