Sexy singer Beyonce Knowles is now an aunt, after her younger sister Solange gave birth to a boy last week (ends22OCT04).

Proud Crazy In Love beauty Beyonce broke her usual stance of protecting her private life to make the announcement at Saturday's (23OCT04) star-studded CAROUSEL OF HOPE fundraiser in Los Angeles.

She told TV network E!, "My sister just had a baby four days ago."

Solange, 18, gave birth to DANIEL JULEZ J SMITH on 18 October (04). The baby tipped the scales at 9 pounds, 4 ounces upon his arrival in a Los Angeles hospital.

He is the first child for Solange and her football player husband DANIEL SMITH, whom she wed in a Bahamas ceremony in February (04).
