During a Wednesday night performance Bobby Brown, 40, announced the birth of his third son and fifth child overall. “I just had a baby,” he told fans assembled at the Rok nightclub in Las Vegas. “Four days ago — my son Cassius.”

Baby boy is the first child together for Bobby and his girlfriend of two years, manager Alicia Etheridge. Cassius joins Bobbi Kristina, 16, Bobby’s daughter with ex-wife Whitney Houston, at home along with Landon, LaPrincia, and Bobby Jr., his children from previous relationships.

The pregnancy was announced in February.

So he has two children named Bobby? One is a girl spelled Bobbi and one is a boy spelled Bobby. That’s unusual.

Yeah, that’s what I thought, 2 kids with the same name would be so confusing!
