* M.I.A. IS A MUM - REPORT MIA is a mum, according to various Internet reports. Indian gossip website DesiHits.com was the first to report the Paper Planes hitmaker, who performed on her due date at the Grammy Awards (08Feb09), gave birth to a baby boy on 12 February (09). In a recent interview, the singer/rapper revealed she thought her child would be a boy, stating, It doesn't matter to me if it's a boy or a girl. If it's a girl she will be a tough girl, but I think I may have a boy because I have a pointy stomach. M.I.A., real name Maya Arulpragasam, was so worried about going into labour at the Grammys, she had an ambulance, stretcher and golf cart on standby - and her fiance Benjamin Brewer used a stopwatch to time her contractions shortly after she came off stage following her performance with Jay-Z, T.I, Lil Wayne and Kanye West. The baby is M.I.A.'s first. No further details were available as WENN went to press. The singer/rapper's publicist offered WENN a no comment on the baby news. M.I.A. is hoping to bounce back from giving birth to perform at the Oscars on 22 February (09). The Sri Lankan-born star is an Oscar Best Song nominee for her Slumdog Millionaire collaboration with A.R. Rahman, O Saya. She is still scheduled to perform at the Academy Awards. (KL/WNWC/KL) M.I.A.
