BABY JOY: Fantasia gives birth to baby boy

FORMER AMERICAN Idol winner Fantasia Barrino has given birth to a 'healthy' baby boy.

The 27-year-old singer welcomed little Dallas Xavier into the world at a hospital in North Carolina yesterday (Dec 13) after going into labour on Monday (Dec 12).

Dallas, who weighed in at 7 lbs 9 oz, is Fantasia's first child from her controversial relationship with boyfriend Antwaun Cook, who is still legally married to his estranged wife Paula.

The star has a daughter Zion from a previous relationship.

Speaking about her new arrival Fantasia told People magazine: "I feel so blessed that my son Dallas Xavier was born healthy, and is a wonderful new addition to our family."

"I thank all my fans for their well wishes and continued support," she added.
