Rapper Lil Wayne had announced that he was expecting a son during the BET Hip-Hop Awards on Saturday that he'd be the father of a baby boy any day now, and he wasn't kidding.
Wayne's son, Dwayne Carter III, was born Wednesday afternoon (October 22), at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, a rep for the rapper told the press. It's Carter's second child. He has a daughter, Reginae Carter, with Antonia "Toya" Johnson, his high school sweetheart, whom he married in 2004 and divorced two years later.
The identity of the boy's mother had not been announced at press time.
Wayne revealed during the BET Hip-Hop Awards that the birth of his son was imminent. He made the announcement during his acceptance speech, after being named Lyricist of the Year.
While changing diapers is in Wayne's immediate future, the MC is prepping the re-release of his latest LP, Tha Carter III. The rapper said the reissue wouldn't be like most reissues, which typically include only one or two unreleased tracks.
