Celebuzz / July 23, 2009

“Milkshake” singer Kelis Rogers-Jones gave birth to a baby boy, Knight Jones, on Tuesday at approximately 9 p.m. in New York, Us Magazine reports.

Rogers-Jones, 29, had been in labor since 2 a.m. on Monday and underwent a natural birth, with her mother and sister beside her in the room. Knight, who was born weighing 7 lbs., 8 oz., is the singer’s first child.

Kelis broke up with her husband and the baby’s father, rapper Nas, earlier this year. The two are currently involved in harsh divorce proceedings, with Nas asking a court to deny Kelis any spousal support and both sides seeking joint custody of the new arrival.
