Lauryn Hill has given birth to her sixth child, despite a brief health scare inside the delivery room. The former Fugees singer welcomed the little boy on Saturday (30th July 2011), but the child was momentarily strangled by the umbilical cord, reports website BlackCelebKids.com.
Despite the scare, a source tells the site, "Mother and baby are fine...Everyone is happy". Attention will now turn to the identity of the baby's father, after Hill's boyfriend Rohan Marley appeared to rule himself out during a conversation on Twitter. Speaking with a reporter from the Houston Chronicle, Bob Marley's son was asked, "So we are clear. 1.) You're not married to your ex-wife or Lauryn, and 2.) She isn't preggo w/your child, but someone else's?", to which he responded, "That is correct until I say out of my mouth to the contrary". Grammy Award-winning Hill has already claimed the father is Marley, who she has five other children with. It is not clear whether the birth of Hill's child will affect a scheduled concert at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday (30th July 2011).
The singer is yet to release the follow-up to her acclaimed 1998 debut solo album 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill'.
