M.I.A. has given birth to a baby boy, a move ceremoniously announced by way of her MySpace blog.
M.I.A.’s baby missed his due date on Sunday, which allowed the eccentric entertainer to perform “Swagger Like Us” at the Sunday Grammys with Kanye West, Jay-Z, T.I. and Lil Wayne. He eventually arrived on Wednesday.
The child’s father is fiance Benjamin Bronfman.
The boy, whose name wasn’t revealed, didn’t miss the mark by far. The singer/rapper went into labor about 2 am on Monday morning.
On her blog, M.I.A. humorously detailed her joy by writing:
“MY BABY WAS BORN WEDNESDAY , HE IS HEALTHY , FINE , BEAUTIFUL AND THE MOST AMZING THING EVER ON THIS PLANET, OF COURSE IM HIS MUM!!!
ME AND BABY ARE PUTTING OUR TOUR DATES FOR 2010 TOGETHER AND MAKING MIX TAPES AND FIGURING OUT A WAY TO BREAK OUT OF THE HOSPITAL !
HOPEFULLY THE WORLD IS BEEN TICKING ALONG AND I AINT MISSED MUCH!
