Keyshia and Daniel began dating last year, at first they didnâ€™t confirm it, but after several pictures taken of the young lovebirds there was no necessity of any confirmation about their relationship. In the last months of 2009 we found out she was pregnant and the media and fans started questioning if Daniel was going to marry her.
Not long after that, Keyshia and Daniel confirmed they got engaged on Christmas Eve as she showed her big Rock on her hand, they also confirmed that they were expecting their first baby to be born in March 2010. As you all might probably know, Keyshia has been having issues with her family, but when she found out she was pregnant she decided to say â€śFinittoâ€ť to those problems.
"Now that I am becoming a mom my passion for having a loving and peaceful home for my child is my #1 priority. It’s very important to both Daniel and I … the stress that my family is giving me with their constant false reports is not healthy and it’s not what I need at this time in my life."
On the first days of February Keyshia was hospitalized as a precaution, but it wasn’t until March 2nd that the happy new parents welcomed their fist son into their lives. Her labor situation was confirmed by Keyshia’s closest friend and fellow singer Monika via Twitter, little Daniel Jr. was born on Tuesday night at 11:54 p.m exactly and he weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces.
"The proud couple would like to thank everyone for giving them privacy during this special time, Keyshia would also like to give a special thank you to her fans that have been with her since the beginning sharing in her growth as a woman and an artist." said her rep.
Daniel is currently in the second year of his 5 year deal worth $21M; he signed with the Houston Cavaliers in July 2008. Perhaps they can give him some time off, not that he is a daddy. Congratulation to the new parents and welcome Daniel Jr.!! Take a look at some of Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibsonâ€™s photos here and their video below
