It’s a boy for Thalía!

The Conexión Thalía host and husband Tommy Mottola welcomed their second child together — son Matthew Alejandro — Saturday, June 25 at 11:48 a.m., the songstress announced via Twitter. He weighed in at 7 lbs., 14 oz.

“Thalía, Tommy, and Sabrina [Sakaë, 3½,] joyfully announce the birth of Matthew Alejandro Mottola,” she writes.

It didn’t take long for the new baby boy to settle in, as only hours later Thalía, 39, added, “Good night! Matteo Alejandro and Mama are going to sleep! Thank you for your love and light!”

The couple announced the pregnancy in March. Matthew also joins Michael and Sarah, Mottola’s adult children from a previous relationship.

Thalia looks an awful lot like Mariah used to when she was married to Tommy…mmmnn…

Macy on

So you publicise Thalia’s baby, but not Paulina Rubio’s? She welcomed a son named Andrea Nicolas last year…

Thankfully only one person in almost 4 years has called my son ‘Matt’ (by accident)

The name is too beautiful to cut in half.

Congrats to Thalia and Tommy, Thalia is one beautiful lady!

That’s how Thalia looked before she even met Tommy (she’s worn her hair straight, curly, wavy, and in many other styles since her thing was to change her style and look a lot). I don’t know why some Mariah fans can’t move on. I’ve seen others pick on Thalia when she had nothing to do with Mariah.

Congrats to the family.

@ elo – you’re absolutely right – thalia looked exactly the same when she met tommy – no change whatsoever…she’s beautiful!!

Thalia is absolutely beautiful, flawless!

Congrats on the arrival of the baby. This should definitely be a beacon of light for Thalia, considering the tough times she faced exactly one month ago when her mother, Yolanda Miranda, passed away on May 27 due to a heart attack.

Macy, not everyone that has a baby is on here. I have no clue who Paulina is, so I googled her. Still not sure shat she’s all about except now she’s all over the Internet for her accident and bad behavior with police officers (that’s the nice term). Nice…..

daniela on

Thalia is drop dead gorgeous.

Carrow on

Congrats Thalia! She seems like a sweet woman.

@Mimi I couldn’t help but notice a resemblance as well.

kimmie on

I am not sure who paulina rubio is. I googled her and the only thing I found is about an accident and someone being arrested. Is that the one? Why should she be on this site, being in the news for accidents and arrests doesnt make one celebrity.

Thalia is one of the most beautiful women ever

Rp on

Thalia ROCKS!!! Congrats!!!

Jillian on

Kimmie, that’s what I found too! I guess she has a baby, though. I read something that as the police were trying to arrest her she was saying I have to breastfeed my child. Nice, huh? That sorta tells me why nothing about her is here.
