NEW YORK (AP) — Singer Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibson, a basketball player with the Cleveland Cavaliers, have announced the birth of their son.

Cole’s publicist, Tresa Sanders, says in a statement to The Associated Press that Daniel Hiram Gibson Jr. was born Tuesday evening. He weighs 7 pounds, 3 ounces (3.2 kilograms).

Sanders says “mother and baby are doing great” and Cole would especially like to thank her fans.

The 28-year-old Cole is a Grammy Award-nominated R&B performer who has starred in her own BET reality show, “Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is.” The 24-year-old Gibson was drafted by Cleveland in 2006. They’re engaged.
