Never one for the conventional, Erykah Badu has chosen yet another unusual name for her latest addition. The singer revealed that she has named her newborn daughter Mars Merkaba. Mars joins big sibs Seven and Puma, children from Badu’s previous relationships.
Erykah Badu welcomed her first child with boyfriend Jay Electronica yesterday. Their daughter was born naturally at home at “exactly” 1:30 pm, and the couple kept their fans updated via Twitter. The new daddy-to-be said it was the “happiest” day of his life.
Badu has two other children–eleven year-old Seven and four year-old daughter Puma–from previous relationships.
