Keyshia Cole wears many hats—daughter, sister, reality star, and singer. But she’s just taken on the most important role of her life, becoming a mother. The R&B songstress has given birth to her first child.
Cole, 28, and fiancé, Cleveland Cavaliers player Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday (March 2), according to UsMagazine.com. “[They] are proud to announce the birth of their beautiful baby boy, Daniel Hiram Gibson Jr.,” said Cole’s rep.
The couple’s son weighed 7 lbs. 3 oz. “Both mother and baby are doing great,” read the statement. “The proud couple would like to thank everyone for giving them privacy during this special time. Keyshia would also like to give a special thank you to her fans that have been with her since the beginning sharing in her growth as a woman and an artist.”
One of Cole’s best friends, Monica, also shared the good news on Twitter. “Little Daniel is the cutes[t] baby. KC did great, he’s a beauty. Glad I have 3 phones room for my two & hers on my screensavers. God is amazing,” she tweeted.
The “Heaven Sent” singer, whose drama has been chronicled on her BET reality show “Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is,” plans to put her new family first. “Now that I am becoming a mom, my passion for having a loving and peaceful home for my child is my #1 priority,” she said last year.
