LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- It’s just a boy for Gwen Stefani.
The pop star gave birth on Thursday afternoon to son Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale, a Stefani rep confirmed to Access Hollywood.
“Mother, baby and family are all happy and healthy,” the rep said in a statement to Access.
Baby Zuma weighed in at 8.5 pounds.
It’s the second child for Gwen, 38, and rocker husband Gavin Rossdale, 40, who are already parents to son Kingston, 2. Rossdale has a daughter, Daisy, 19, from a previous relationship.
As for his big name, “Nesta” may be a reference to Jamaican reggae icon Bob Marley, whose middle name was Nesta as well. Bob’s son Damian collaborated with Gwen on a remix of her song “Now That You Got It” in 2007, and it wouldn’t be the first reggae-related name for the Stefani-Rossdale children — Kingston was named after the capital city of Jamaica.
There’s no doubt that Zuma will also follow his brother’s lead in making some famous friends — on Tuesday, Kingston had a playdate with Britney Spears and her sons, Jayden James and Sean Preston, and his second birthday bash in May included Nicole Richie, Joel Madden and daughter Harlow as well as Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman with son Max.
