Kelis Gives Birth To Baby Boy

“Milkshake” singer Kelis welcomed her first child on Wednesday, Access Hollywood has confirmed.

“Kelis gave birth to Knight Jones last night on July 22nd around 9 PM,” a rep for Kelis said in a statement released to Access. “Weighing a healthy 7.8lbs, the beautiful baby boy and his mother are doing wonderful.”

As previously reported on Access Hollywood, the singer went into labor early Monday morning around 2 AM. Kelis’ rep said she chose a natural birth.

The singer delivered in a New York City area hospital. Her mother and sister were present in the room during the birth.

This is the first child for the singer, and the second for ex-husband Nas, who also has a 15-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

Kelis announced her pregnancy at the beginning of this year, before filing for divorce from Nas in late April.
