After false rumors that the big day had come a few weeks ago, it's been confirmed that Keyshia Cole has given birth to a healthy baby boy. She and Boobie Gibson, who have been engaged since New Year's Day when he reportedly gave her an $800,000 ring containing a 10-carat diamond, welcomed their son into the world at 11:54 PM on Tuesday. The baby, who tipped the scales at 7lb, 3oz., was named Daniel Gibson Jr. after his father.
If you heard that Keyshia Cole went into labor with Daniel "Boobie" Gibson's baby yesterday, you heard wrong. It is true that the Cavs guard showed up late to the game after attending to his fiancée and unborn child at the hospital, but it wasn't because the future NBA baby was on the way. Cleveland GM Danny Ferry was the one to clarify things, announcing that Gibson's absence was because Keyshia Cole had been taken into the hospital for "precautionary reasons" and that Boobie had been excused to be by her side. Gibson was back in the building in time for the start of the second half, and he was focused enough to chip in twelve points after the intermission.
Even though Boobie and Keyshia's baby may not be here quite yet, it's not far off. Cole's due date is March 2, which is sandwiched between a Cavs home game against New York on the first and a road contest against the Nets on the third.
