Singer/songwriter Erykah Badu
really cares about her fans. Otherwise she probably wouldn't have twittered through the birth of her first child with boyfriend Jay Electronica.
Thankfully, that update about naming her newborn daughter "Twitty Milk" was just a joke. Badu has gone slightly more mainstream and named her baby girl Mars Merkaba
. She revealed the name on Twitter, of course.
Badu seems thrilled over her new child. She wrote: her eyes are looking right into mine . she struggles to focus . so much ♥ in her . i wonder where she just came from. i mean .. her spirit...
Congratulations to Ms. Badu, whose mother inspired Outkast's hit "Ms. Jackson" after Badu and Andre 3000 split in the late '90s.
