Erykah Badu Twitters The Birth of Her Third Child

Congratulations to Erykah Badu and partner Jay Electronica on the safe arrival of their first baby together.

The new moms rep told US,

“Erykah gave birth to a baby girl at her home on February 1, 2009 at 1:30 p.m. The baby’s father, [rapper] Jay Electronica, and her two children were in attendance.”

MTV News reported the singer and her partner sent Twitter messages throughout their daughter’s birth.

“Morning, I’m in labor,” Badu announced to her 4,500 followers on Sunday.

The couple chose to deliver at her Brooklyn, New York home with the help of a midwife — who was apparently running late.

“Labor has begun,” Electronica wrote. “Everybody stand back. No hospitals. No doctors. No medicine. We’re waiting for the midwife to show.”

He also announced that Badu’s daughter Puma, 7, with rapper D.O.C., and Seven, 10, her son with Andre 3000, were present, and that he was writing updates while rubbing his girlfriend’s feet.

Shortly after delivery, Electronica posted: “Feb. 1 2009 my first child, my daughter born at 130 PM exactly. It’s the happiest day of my life.”

Badu added: “I can’t believe it’s over. Home birth, no painkillers, about five hours, she was a little past due date, but I didn’t mind waiting. Breath.”
