Yesterday while people watched the Superbowl, "Bag Lady" singer Erykah Badu gave birth to a baby girl. The baby's father, rapper and producer Jay Electronica Twittered the announcement as well as some of Erykah's labor.
My daughter is ready. Labor has begun. Everybody standback. No hospitals. No doctors. No medicine. Were waiting on midwife to show up.
I’m doing foot squeezes and foot rubs when the contractions hit. Puma is rubbing her hands.
Ok… The midwife is here now and a few family members. Feels like a scene from the color purple.
She’s dialated to 8 1/2 centimeters.
Getting closer. She says she feels like she’s ready to push
Feb 1. 2009 my first child, my daughter was born at 1:30 pm exactly. Its the happiest day of my life
Puma is Erykah's 4 year old daughter with rapper The D.O.C. She also has a son, Seven Sirius, with Outkast's André 3000. This baby's name hasn't been revealed yet, but I'm sure all eyes are on Twitter for that update as well. Cross your fingers she and Jay Electronica spare you the visual of her dilated cervix ever, ever again.
Congratulations Erykah! Did someone call Tyrone?
