So it's now official that R&B singer Erykah Badu is carrying her third child. During a recent concert in Texas, the Dallas-born chanteuse announced that she is in fact pregnant again...and it looks like the father is Jay Electronica pictured above.
Back in June, Erykah took some slack when the rumors first started to surface, mainly because it meant she'd be having a third child by a third man. Even though it's true, I thought those early disses were tremendous low blows. Her first two children were fathered by Andre 3000 of OutKast fame and the D.O.C. from N.W.A. respectively. Now her and rapper Jay Electronica are expecting.
To me, that's the most intriguing part--the fact that they're all rappers. Anyway, she always picks cool names for her kids: her son is named Seven, her daughter is named Puma, so it's anyone's guess what she'll come up with this time.

Anyway's here's my favorite Erykah Badu video. Now that I think about it, if the baby is a girl, the name Honey would work just fine.
