Rapper Jay Electronica and soul singer Erykah Badu are the new parents of a baby girl that was born on Feb. 1.
The rapper gave continued updates on his Twitter page, AllHipHop.com has learned.
Electronica said, “Feb 1. 2009 my first child, my daughter was born at 1:30 pm exactly. Its the happiest day of my life.”
Moments before the birth, Electronica said, “I see the head. Full of hair.”
Their relationship appears to be strong, but it hasn’t been without controversy.
Earlier in 2008, Badu responded to critical fans that had views over the singer having another child by a rapper. The Dallas, TX native also has a child with Andre 3000 of Outkast, and another with The D.O.C., a legendary rapper closely affiliated with N.W.A. and Dr. Dre.
At the time, Badu stated:
"How date you disrespect the queendom...and my children and my intelligence. I've never been so disgusted in all of my life. I am a great mother and caregiver to my two children, and to this world. My children are two of the kindest and happiest people I have met ... I am their doctor and their nurse, and even sometimes their mother and their father. I am an excellent mother and resent all of the negative comments and insults on my character."
Still the pair's loving ways have apparently prevailed. They even appeared on the February 2008 cover of URB magazine.
Clearly ecstatic, Jay Electronica commented, seemingly in jest, that he wanted to stream the birth on the internet.
