Congratulations are in order for Rachel Dolezal.

The former president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP has revealed that she welcomed a son on Tuesday.

"Today, we welcomed the newest addition… Langston Attickus, born on 2/16/16, a healthy and perfect little guy with two proud big bros and a happy momma. (named after Langston Hughes & Crispus Attucks)," a statement on Dolezal's Facebook account reads.

Dolezal – whose own race has been a controversial topic – notes that she's named her son after two historical African-American men; poet and social activist Langston Hughes, and Crispus Attucks, who is thought to have been the first American casualty of the Revolutionary War.

Dolezal became infamous when it was revealed that she's biologically white despite portraying herself, and self-identifying as black. She has not yet commented on the father or ethnicity of baby Langston.



The mother of three confirmed her pregnancy during a November interview on daytime talk show The Real, but sat in uncomfortable silence when co-host and comedian Loni Love jokingly asked, "So, I guess the baby black huh?"
