Kelis Twitters About Birth of New Baby Knight Jones
A day after her estranged hip-hop husband Nas confirmed the details of their new baby, Knight Jones, born on July 22, Kelis took to Twitter to share some details with her fans/followers. “Ok so I did it, he’s 7.8 pounds of the greatest stuff on earth,” Kelis wrote today.
The singer managed to update fans while very pregnant right up until the day she was ready to pop. Her last pre-labor tweet came on July 19 when like a true pregger she gave chocolate chain Max Brenner a nice shout out. Kelis took a break from the social networking/micro-blogging service while she gave birth to her first bundle of joy, but returned this morning.
“I was in labor for 3 of the longest most painful days of my life. I don’t understand when women say they don’t remember giving birth,” she tweeted.
The couple announced the pregnancy in January — during seemingly happier times. Since then, Kelis and Nas have publicly split. The pair’s impending divorce has been the subject of constant TMZ news alerts with Kelis claiming Nas left her high and dry while pregnant. To make matters worse, it was reported Nas was not allowed to witness the birth of baby Knight.
On a lighter/brighter note, Kelis seems to be in goos spirits despite her marriage woes and 72-hour labor. “I will remember for the rest of my life. He’s kinda perfect btw,” she wrote.
