Troubled country singer Mindy McCready announced the birth of her second child on Thursday.
"Zayne is truly a blessing and a joy. It was a long and trying pregnancy; we're so happy he's here. There are no words to convey how happy we are," McCready tells Us Weekly in a statement.
This is McCready's second son. The singer has a six-year-old, Zander, with her ex Billy McKnight.
Back in November, McCready made headlines when she and Zander were reported missing by McCready's mother, who serves as Zander's legal guardian. McCready eventually returned her son by judge's order.
