Although it was previously announced to be Ickitt, M.I.A’s newborn son’s name has now been revealed as Ikhyd.
According to the baby’s birth certificate, Mathangi Maya Arulpragasam officially named her son Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman.
The official certificate also revealed another interesting fact. M.I.A’s birth date is listed as July 18, 1975 which makes her real age 33 (not 31 as previously believed).
It has just been announced that Ikhyd’s mom, in her first major appearance following her performance at the 2009 Grammy Awards (pictured above on her due date), has been booked for the second night of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 18.
So what do you think? Is Ikhyd better than Ickitt?

Soleil Moon Frye took to her Little Seed blog to share the details of her daughter Jagger’s first birthday.
Saying that she “can’t believe how fast the time goes by,” Soleil reveals that big sister Poet, 3 1/2, played host at the party.
“Poet hosted Jagger’s b-day and it was a big hit. Bubbles in the air, face painting, crafts and even a puppy petting zoo. There is nothing quite like the vision of kids running around on a candy high laughing while they chase after one another. Smiling little ones full of life and joy.”
Sounds like a wonderful day!
“These are the moments that I live for,” writes happy mom Soleil.
Soleil and her two girls are pictured above on a family trip to the park earlier this month.
Isla Fisher was seen leaving a friend’s house in Hollywood with her adorable 1-year-old daughter Olive Cohen on Friday.
Dad is Sacha Baron Cohen, who, according to Isla is a fantastic father: “Sacha is a wonderful, very attentive, constantly amusing and very hands-on,” Isla gushes. “He’s 10 out of 10 I’d say – and then some! He already makes Olive shriek with laughter.”

On being one of the boys on My Name Is Earl: “I’m so one of the boys on the show! Lord, yes. Why stop the fun? I had a child; I didn’t die. [Costars] Jason Lee and Ethan Suplee are like my brothers. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have gotten through my pregnancy. They’re both fathers, and they were very understanding. When I got pregnant, they already knew I was a spitfire, so they were all a little afraid. I had my emotional moments. But no crazy yelling or anything like that.”
On her chatty son Dezi’s favorite expressions: “[Jaime imitates Dezi by smacking her forehead] ‘Oh, maaaannnn.’ He got that from Dora the Explorer. Mommy was his first word – which I loved. He got Dada soon after. For a while he spoke more Spanish than English because Eric is Cuban. There’s lots of ‘aqui, aqui’ and ‘comida, Mami,’ when he wants to eat. He can count to 10 in English. In Spanish, though, he really likes the word cinco. He’ll say, ‘Uno, dos, tres, quatro,’ then ‘cinco, cinco, cinco.’ He’s a really smart kid, really animated, lots of personality.”
On parenting post-breakup: “I have full custody, but when he’s in town, Eric comes and sees Dezi every day. Dezi’s too young right now to go overnight. But Eric’s very much a part of his life; he’s a great father. We make sure that no matter what happens, Dezi is okay and protected and knows that Mom and Daddy love him. We’ve never argued in front of him. We don’t raise our voices around him. “
Although they’re not identical, Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller’s newborn fraternal twin boys are still managing to fool their dad.
“I can’t tell! They’re not identical, but at this stage they’re similar enough.” Sheen, 43, told Entertainment Tonight from the set of Two and a Half Men just days after wife Brooke Mueller Sheen, 31, delivered twin sons Max and Bob. Charlie said he likes short and sweet names: “[Their names] are very short and simple – easy to spell and remember,” Sheen said. “Bob is the same frontward and backward. I’m a fan of a short and simple name. Max was literally Nick until about a minute before he came out.”
Charlie went on to say that life at their LA home is tiring yet phenomenal. “It’s pretty amazing. Not a whole lot of sleep, but what parent does at this stage? There’s adrenaline, excitement, fear.”
And big sisters Lola, 3, and Sam, 5, Sheen’s daughters with ex Denise Richards, are super excited as well: “[They're] thrilled,” he said, “but insisting that they’re named Bob and Duke. It’s not Max, it’s Duke.”
Charlie now has five children. Sheen and ex-girlfriend Paula Profit have a 24-year-old daughter, Cassandra Jade Estevez.
