Lil Wayne Father Of New Born Son

Superstar Lil Wayne is capping off his record-breaking 2008 year with a personal milestone in the birth of his first son.

The newborn, named Dwayne Carter III, was born this afternoon at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati.

Despite rumors and leaked pictures, Wayne has not confirmed the identity of the child’s mother.

The extensive attention to the New Orleans star’s personal life began this past Saturday (October 18), when Wayne revealed during the BET Awards he was expecting his second child.

After beating out stiff competition from the likes of Nas and Lupe Fiasco for “Lyricist of the Year,” Wayne requested during his acceptance speech that everyone pray for a safe delivery.

“I got a son about to be born any day now, so shout-out to him,” he revealed. “Pray for me.” In addition, Wayne later took home the network’s MVP of the Year award, besting DJ Khaled, Jay-Z, T.I., and Kanye West.

A tireless and prolific artist, Lil Wayne will remain at work on several projects that will seek to build on the 2X platinum success of Tha Carter III: I Can’t Feel My Face (with Juelz Santana), Luv Swangz (R&B, vocoder album), T-Wayne (with T-Pain), Dedication III (with DJ Drama), and Tha Carter IV.
