The singer delivered in a New York City area hospital. Her mother and sister were present in the room during the birth.
This is the first child for the singer, and the second for ex-husband Nas, who also has a 15-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
Kelis announced her pregnancy at the beginning of this year, before filing for divorce from Nas in late April.
