Oft-troubled singer Mindy McCready finally has some good news, although a little less than she thought. She and David Wilson welcomed a baby boy on Monday (April 9).
“[He] is truly a blessing and a joy,” McCready says in a statement. “It was a long and trying pregnancy; we’re so happy he’s here. There are no words to convey how happy we are.”
Now as for the part that was less than expected.
In Nov. 2011, McCready said that she was pregnant with twins. As for the confusion, her spokesperson tells E!, “At the time of the initial announcement surrounding Mindy’s pregnancy, in consideration of her size, Mindy was certain she was carrying twins; a misinterpreted sonogram seemed to support her feelings and excitement.”
It’s been a different kind of year for McCready. At the same time she announced her pregnancy, she was also dealing with a major custody fight over her 5-year-old son Zander. Things got so bad she was being sought by authorities after taking the boy from his Florida home. McCready later won a custody hearing in Dec. 2011.
