Lauryn Hill welcomed her sixth child into the world over the weekend and- it’s a boy!

The child, whose name has not been made public, arrived on Saturday night, July 23rd.

Blackcelebkids.com reported the news first:

“Mother and baby are fine,” says the source, who adds that Hill and family “had a little scare because the baby came out the womb with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. All is well now and everyone is happy.”

Lauryn previously wrote an open letter to her fans apologizing for several cancelled performances saying that her pregnancy had caused the change in plans. Referring to the pregnancy as “the continued growth of our family (wink, wink)”, Lauryn said she was looking forward to give fans “a musical experience worth coming back for.”

It appears Lauryn will have the chance to give her fans just that. The singer, who turned 36 this year, is slated to perform her album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” in it’s entirety at the Rock The Bells festival next month.

Congrats to Lauryn on bringing her baby boy safely into the world. We wish her all the best!
