Congratulations are in order for Mindy McCready.
Zayne is truly a blessing and a joy,” McCready, 36, and boyfriend David Wilson say in a statement. “It was a long and trying pregnancy; we’re so happy he’s here. There are no words to convey how happy we are.”
When asked to clarify why McCready delivered one baby rather than two, her rep said, “At the time of the initial announcement surrounding Mindy’s pregnancy, in consideration of her size, Mindy was certain she was carrying twins; a misinterpreted sonogram seemed to support her feelings and excitement.”
McCready is already mom to son Zander, 6, with ex-boyfriend Billy McKnight. Last November, the musician took her elder son from the care of her parents — his legal guardians — and fled Florida with the boy. The country crooner took him to a home in Arkansas, where they were found hiding in a closet.
In December, McCready – who has battled substance abuse addictions – said she “was happy” with the results of a child-welfare hearing.
