Country star Mindy McCready has become a mother after giving birth to a baby boy on 25 March (06) in Nashville, Tennessee. The singer has named her child ZANDER RYAN MCCREADY. MCCready has a tumultuous history with the baby's father - aspiring singer Billy Mcknight was arrested in May (05) for allegedly breaking into MCCready's house and beating and choking her. The singer then attempted suicide in Florida, in July, after learning she was pregnant with MCKnight's baby. In September MCCready was hospitalised again after overdosing on anti-depressants following another argument with MCKnight over the pregnancy.
