M.I.A. and fiancé Ben Brewer welcomed their first child on February 11th. No name has been released, but on her MySpace page, the excited new mom wrote,
“Sunday night I came home from the Grammys still in the mood to party. I coulda easily gone out but I went home instead, lucky I did! My early stage labor kicked in around 2 a.m. My baby was born Wednesday. He is healthy, fine, beautiful and the most amazing thing ever on this planet — of course I’m his mum!! Me and baby are putting our tour dates for 2010 together, making mix tapes and figuring out a way to break out of the hospital! My baby boy says hi!”
M.I.A. and Ben, the lead singer and guitarist of The Exit, just performed at the Grammy Awards – on her due date!
