Well, that clears that
up. Sort of.
Rapper M.I.A. was beside herself
when reports surfaced she named her baby Ickitt. She denied it and added sarcastically she also hadn't named her child Pickit or Lickit.
Now, according to Health Department records, it turns out the boy's name at least appears to rhyme with the rest: Ikhyd.
Full name: Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman. He arrived
in this world the afternoon of Feb. 11 in Los Angeles, the first child for the Sri Lanka-born M.I.A., 31, whose real name is Mathangi Arulpragasam, and fiancé Benjamin Bronfman, 26, also a musician.
The birth came between M.I.A.'s memorable Grammy performance
on Feb. 8, her original due date, and the Oscars at which her song "O Saya," from Best Picture Slumdog Millionaire
, was nominated.
