There must be something about the combination of [artist id=”510062″]Lil Wayne[/artist], announcements and awards shows.
The Cash Money rapper memorably revealed the birth of his second child during the 2008 BET Hip-Hop Awards, during a rambling acceptance speech. And now right before the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, it’s been confirmed Weezy is officially a father for the third time.
A representative for Lauren London confirmed to MTV News on Sunday (September 13) that London gave birth on Wednesday, along with information in a statement released Saturday to HipHollywood.com.
“Lauren London and Dwayne Carter welcomed their healthy baby boy into the world on 09-09-09,” the rep said in a released statement. “Everyone is happy and well.”
Speculation that London was pregnant by Lil Wayne had swirled for months. The two had appeared courtside together at basketball games in the past, but neither publicly spoke about a relationship. In July of this year, London attended a party hosted by Diddy and Ashton Kutcher and photos from the event showed a very pregnant London for the first time.
Last month, Wayne confirmed the news when he appeared on Los Angeles radio station Power 106 and admitted the actress would be delivering his child. Wayne has two children from two previous relationships — a daughter with his former wife and a son with a college student. This is London’s first child. A Los Angeles native, London’s credits include the movies “ATL” and “I Love You, Beth Cooper” with Hayden Panettiere, along with appearances in videos by Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams.
As of press time the name of Wayne and London’s son is not known.
