Bobby Brown reveals newborn daughter’s name

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

Bobby Brown welcomed his seventh child into the world the other day and has taken musical inspiration for her name. In what appears to be an homage, the singer and his wife of four years have named their daughter Hendrix Estelle Sheba Brown.

The arrival of his new daughter comes almost a year to the day after his other daughter, Bobbi Kristina’s death.

Brown announced the birth of his daughter last week with a simple message saying, “Just had a baby girl 10 pounds.”

This is the third child for Bobby and his wife. They also have a 12 month old daughter named Bodhi and a son named Cassius, who is seven.

Brown was previously married to famous singer Whitney Houston from 1992-2007. She died in 2012 in a bathtub from an accidental drug overdose. The marriage was a tumultuous one, with Houston finally filing for divorce. It was at that time that she got custody of their daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

Like her mother, Bobbi Kristina tragically died as a result of drug use. She was in a coma for almost six months after also being found unresponsive in a tub.

Bobby Brown has also had his share of problems with drugs, though he says he is now clean and sober.
