UsMagazine.com reports ‘American Idol’ season five finalist Paris Bennett gave birth to a baby girl on Monday afternoon in Minneapolis. The girl weighed in at 5 pounds 15 ounces and was given the name Egypt. “I’m so excited to finally see my little angel and man does she have lungs on her I guess she’s gearing up to be the next ‘American Idol’,” Bennett said.
A rep for the singer, who is set to release ‘A Royal Christmas’ on October 14th, tells Usmagazine.com, “The proud first time mother is doing well and recovering. Paris’ mother Jamecia Bennett and her family is filled with excitement and welcomes their bundle of joy.”
Bennett’s mother told the Minneapolis Star Tribue at the time she announced her pregnancy that the baby’s father “chooses not to be in the public eye.”
