Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill became a mother for the sixth time over the weekend as reports claim she gave birth to a newborn less than 48 hours ago.

According to reports, Hill gave birth to a baby boy Saturday (July 23).

It's a boy for Lauryn Hill! The singer welcomed her sixth child on Saturday night, July 23rd, a source confirms to Blackcelebkids.com exclusively. "Mother and baby are fine," says the source, who adds that Hill and family "had a little scare because the baby came out the womb with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. All is well now and everyone is happy." (Black Celeb Kids)

The son's father, Rohan Marley, has denied recent rumors that they separated.

The Everything is Everything singer already has five kids with her longtime beau, Rohan Marley, who recently made headlines for leaving an expectant Lauryn for Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana. But Rohan dismissed these rumors, saying, "Ms. Hill is the mother of my children, whom I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for. I would never do that." Lauryn and Rohan - the fourth son of reggae legend Bob Marley - are parents to five children: Zion, 13, Selah, 12, Joshua, 9, John, 8, and Sarah, 3. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

Last month, Hill hinted at being pregnant with her sixth child during a Detroit show.

Former first lady of the celebrated Fugees Lauryn Hill is expecting her sixth child and confirmed the news at a concert this past Saturday (June 4) in Detroit. While onstage at Chene Park in the Motor City, a late arriving Ms. Hill announced at the end of her set that she is indeed pregnant after dropping hints throughout the year that she may be expecting at a previous event. Hill currently is a mother of three boys and two girls with oldest son Zion turning 14 this coming August. Fans of Lauryn Hill will no doubt recollect when the singer immortalized her first born in song on the track "To Zion" from her debut solo album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill. (RapFix)

Following the speculation, Hill formally issued an open letter discussing her pregnancy.

"Coming back home after several months of extensive reconnecting with supporters and music lovers. We thank you for your continued appreciation. The majority of these dates were planned in advance of me knowing about the continued growth of my family (wink, wink). There were some shows that we started late. We apologize and thank you for your patience. That said, I can't wait to re-engage with you, and give you a musical experience worth coming back for. Let's do it real soon." (Statement)
