And you thought “Apple” was a bizarre baby name.
According to Latina, rapper M.I.A. has named her newborn baby boy “Ickett.”
The boy was born Feb. 11. Before giving birth, she blogged: “MY EARLY STAGE LABOUR KICKED IN AROUND 2 AM ¿¿¿ MY BABY WAS BORN WEDNESDAY (FEBRUARY 11), HE IS HEALTHY, FINE, BEAUTIFUL AND THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER ON THIS PLANET, OF COURSE IM HIS MUM!!!”
The “Paper Planes” rapper famously performed “Swagga Like Us” with Jay-Z, T.I., Lil Wayne and Kanye West at the Grammys Feb. 8 — the same day she was due.
“Ickett” is the first child for M.I.A (real name: Mathangi ¿¿¿Maya¿¿¿ Arulpragasam) and her fiance, musician Benjamin Bronfman.
