Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley welcomed their new son over the weekend.
Despite a heart-stopping moment in the delivery room, the "Doo Wop (That Thing)" singer delivered a son on Saturday. This is Lauryn’s sixth child with Rohan.
“Mother and baby are fine,” a source close to the couple told BlackCelebKids.com. “[The 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.”
There’s no word on what Lauryn and Rohan plan to name their new addition. Rohan, however, took the birth of his son as an opportunity to address rumors that he’d dumped Lauryn to hook up with a Brazilian model named Isabeli Fontana.
"Ms. Hill is the mother of my children, whom I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for. I would never do that," Rohan tweeted Saturday. "The nature of our relationship [is] something we don’t expect people who spread gossip for a living to fully understand."
He challenged bloggers to more closely consider the source of the rumors, suggesting he’d skipped out on Lauryn, before reporting the gossip as news.
"Who and where do you get this stuff from? Do you check the validity of your sources?" he questioned. "Have any of you considered potentially having to respond to a libel and/or slander lawsuit?"
