R&B singer Amerie recently updated fans on her "Heard 'Em All" Lil Wayne collaboration and said his "disappearance" from the accompanying music video was partially due to his newborn child with Lauren London.

In addition to the video, Amerie also explained her respect for the self-proclaimed "Greatest Rapper Alive.

"He definitely is [going to appear in the video]," Amerie told interviewer Lola Plaku. "We just have to do that shot, which we've been trying to do -- and he just had a baby and he has another baby coming soon, we of course don't know what day is going to be so [sighs] hopefully it goes -- no I'm not going to say hopefully it goes down; it is going to go down...Lil Wayne is great. I've liked him since he was with Cash Money...I've always liked what he does, and I love his energy. For me it was just awesome working with him. Of course I like the stuff that he's done recently as well, but he's just really into the artistry. He's really into being an artist and I think that's awesome. Because sometimes people are into the life, but not into the art of it." (ILuvLola)

Reports initially broke out earlier this month regarding Wayne and London's newborn.

According to reports, actress Lauren London has given birth to a son at Ceder Sinai hospital in Los Angeles. While the name of her child is unknown at this point, he is a healthy 7 lbs and 12 oz., and 21 inches long. The baby's father is multi-platinum rapper Lil Wayne, who was said to have stayed by the ATL star's side throughout the delivery. (The Boom Box)

Despite various claims of when the birth took place, a publicist for London later clarified initial reports.

In an exclusive statement to, actress Lauren London confirmed the birth of her baby boy on Wednesday (September 9). According to Lauren London's publicist, Jocelyn R. Coleman of Favor PR, "Lauren London and Dwayne Carter welcomed their healthy baby boy into the world on 09-09-09. Everyone is happy and well." (Hip Hollywood)

Wayne previously revealed London as being one of his latest baby's mothers.

"She's very pregnant," he said in an interview last month. "That's not rumors, that's a kid. That's a child. A life. You don't hide from that." (Necole Bitchie)
