Mindy McCready cannot even give birth without controversy.
The country singer - who abducted her son in late 2011 and was eventually found cowering with the five-year old in a friend's closet - welcomed a baby boy into the world last Monday, she confirmed over the weekend, despite reports that she was pregnant with twins.
His name is Zayne.
“Zayne is truly a blessing and a joy,” McCready and boyfriend David Wilson said in a statement. “It was a long and trying pregnancy; we’re so happy he’s here. There are no words to convey how happy we are.”
A rep for McCready says a "misinterpreted sonogram" was to blame for the initial claim of two fetuses.
The crooner's sordid history includes an alleged relationship with cheating baseball star Roger Clemens when she was only 16, along with the incident detailed above and a sex tape. She is also the mother to Zander, 6.
