Mindy McCready Welcomes Baby # 2
“Zayne is truly a blessing and a joy,” McCready said 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.”
While it was previously reported that the singer was carrying twins, her rep clarified the misconception,“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.”
McCready shot to fame with her music, but has been in the news due to a slew of personal and legal issues. With persistent substance abuse, she has been jailed twice, attempted suicide twice, and has had a leaked sex tape.
This is the first baby for the couple, but the second for McCready. Zayne joins big brother Zander, the singer’s 6-year-old son with ex-boyfriend Billy McNight. Due to the current custody battle with McCready’s parents, Zander is currently in foster care in Arkansas.
