British rap artist M.I.A gave birth to a baby boy on February 12. His name has not been released to the press yet. M.I.A., 31, graced the stage of the Grammy’s Award Show on her due date, giving a spectacular performance of “Swagga Like Us” with hip-hop icons Jay-Z, TI, Lil Wayne and Kanye West. According to hollyscoop.com, her fiance Benjamin Brewer said she started having contractions right before she hit the stage so a waiting car rushed her off to the hospital after the performance.
Interviewed on the red carpet, M.I.A told reporters , “It doesn’t matter to me if it’s a boy or a girl. If it’s a girl she will be a tough girl, but I think I may have a boy because I have a pointy stomach.” When Desi Hits asked M.I.A. what she hopes to teach her child, she replied with, “I would teach my child tons of things. I want my child to see third world countries, and be humble about what she or he has, and have sound judgement.”
The rap artist is scheduled to perform at the Oscar’s in two weeks, and there is speculation over whether she will be well enough to attend. Given her boasted reputation as a ‘tough girl’ and energetic appearance at the Grammy’s, it will not surprise anyone to see her performing with vigor at the upcoming awards show.
