Lauryn Hill Gives Birth to Sixth Child, Endured Labor Scare


Lauryn Hill has announced she gave birth to a baby boy, her sixth child, on Saturday, July 23. The newborn boy’s name has yet to be publicly announced.

The birth may come as a surprise, as the notoriously private former Fugees frontwoman hid her pregnancy from the public for months before finally confirming she had another bun in the oven and messaging fans about her pregnancy, just last month.

It seems like the baby boy has been born into a bit of controversy as well. Rohan Marley, the father of the 36-year-old’s five other children and son of reggae royalty Bob Marley, has denied fathering Hill’s latest child.

To add insult to injury, Rohan reportedly dropped his pregnant long-time partner for Brazilian supermodel Isabeli Fontana — rumors Marley has since denied.

A source close to Lauryn confirmed the baby news and announced, “Mother and baby are fine,” after having “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,” the source added.
