It’s a girl for Deborah Cox! Daughter Kaila Michelle Stephens arrived at 11:55 a.m. this morning, Monday February 23rd, in Miami, Fla. She weighed in at 7 lbs., 7 oz, is 20 ½ inches long, and “is perfect,” says Deborah.

This is the third child for the “Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here” singer, 34, and her husband Lascelles Stephens. Kaila joins big brother Isaiah, 5 ½, and sister Sumayah, 2 ½.

The couple had announced the pregnancy in October. Deborah’s latest album, The Promise, is out now.

Is her name pronounced Kayla or Kyla? I like both, but was just wondering!

My daughter’s name is Kaila and is pronounced “Kyla”…I too am wondering…..

Noelle on

I would guess it’s pronounced “KYE-lah”. I think it’s much prettier that way, and it fits the naming style of her other two children. Whereas if it was like “KAY-lah”, that’s a super common trendy name that’s become dated. Isaiah, Sumayah, and Kaila (like KYE-lah) just sound perfect together =)
