Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale welcome a son!

05/26/2006 at 02:08 PM ET

001_1_1Update: It’s a boy! Kingston James McGregor was born just before 1 pm this afternoon by cesarean section in Los Angeles, with a full head of hair! He weighed in at 7 1/2 lbs. Gwen and Gavin apparently plan to call him "King." The name is said to have been chosen to honor both Gavin’s English heritage and Gwen’s love of Jamaican culture. McGregor, the second middle name, is also Gavin’s middle name as well.

Originally posted at 3:05 pm: CBB sources and Us Weekly report that Gwen Stefani is in the process of giving birth to her first child.

While the NY Daily News reports that Gwen was going to be induced today, Us Weekly says Gwen (in her red lipstick of course!) and Gavin Rossdale arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles this morning and have a cesarean section planned for noon, PST. Since it’s just after 3 pm on the east coast, the baby may have already made its arrival! More news to come as we receive it.

I read in Us Weekly that Gwen wants to give Kingston a baby sister to play with!

I hope she has another child soon. I’d love to see her have a daughter. I hope she does.
