The singer’s BFF Monica confiemd the delivery yesterday afternoon on Twitter, writing, "Little Daniel is the cutes baby. KC did great, he’s a beauty. Glad I have 3 phones room for my two & hers on my screensavers.God is amazing."
Keyshia’s publicist Tresa Sanders later released a statement saying that Keyshia’s son, Daniel Hiram Gibson Jr., was born at 11:54 p.m. on Tuesday. The bundle made his entrance weighing in at 7 pounds and 3 ounces.
"Both mother and baby are doing great," Tresa said. "Keyshia would also like to give a special thank-you to her fans that have been with her since the beginning, sharing in her growth as a woman and an artist."
Monica told her tweeps Tuesday that Keyshia had gone into labor, but that the baby had not arrived as some outlets were reporting.
“She’s doing great. She’s in active labor but the baby has not been born yet as reported,” Monica wrote, noting that doctors predicted the baby boy would be born overnight. “As her friend and mother myself I’m BEYOND proud of her. She can’t wait to hold him.”
