Grammy award-winning singer Erykah Badu and her rapper beau, Jay Electronica, welcomed a baby girl on Sunday, the singer’s publicist confirmed. The newborn is the couple’s first child together, but is the third child for the soulful Texan beauty who also has a 10-year-old son, Seven, with rapper-turned-actor Andre “3000” Benjamin; and a four-year-old daughter, Puma, with rapper and childhood friend, Tracey “The D.O.C.” Curry.
“I’m a real good mother and I make sure the fathers are active,” Badu, 37, told ESSENCE in April 2008. “We’re very cognizant of what’s going on with our children.”
Badu released her fifth album, “New Amerykah: Part 1: 4th World War,” in February 2008.—KB
