Kelis gave birth to a baby boy named Knight in New York City on Wednesday after over 24 hours of labor.
“My son is born today, so shout out to my son Knight,” Nas said in an on-camera interview with Video Music Box conducted on Tuesday, apparently still tipsy from celebrating the occasion with champagne.
There had been reports that Nas was not allowed in the delivery room for the birth of his son. He indirectly addressed the rumors by saying, “Don’t believe nothing in the media.”
“My son name is Knight. That’s what I named the young god, Knight,” he told his hometown crowd at a show in the Queensbridge Projects of New York.
This is the first child for Kelis and the second for Nas, who has a 15-year-old daughter named Destiny. The couple announced their separation in April.
