Britney Spears Delivers Baby Boy

Pop star and husband welcome first child

September 14, 2005 12:00 AM ET

Britney Spears gave birth to a baby boy Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles, according to US Weekly.

Spears, 23, and husband Kevin Federline, 27, arrived at the Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center shortly before 6 a.m. The singer was later taken to a delivery room around noon and delivered via C-section.

The couple has not yet named the child, which is Spears' first and Federline's third (he has two children, Kori, 3, and Kaleb, 1, with ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson.)

Spears married Federline, her former backup dancer, last year, just months after her fifty-five-hour marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander. The couple announced Spears' pregnancy in April and launched their UPN reality series Britney and Kevin: Chaotic, shortly thereafter.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
