"Zayne is truly a blessing and a joy," McCready and boyfriend David Wilson said in a statement. "It was a long and trying pregnancy; we're so happy he's here. There are no words to convey how happy we are."
Initially, the 36-year-old country singer said she was expecting twins, but her rep explained, "At the time of the initial announcement surrounding Mindy's pregnancy, in consideration of her size, Mindy was certain she was carrying twins; a misinterpreted sonogram seemed to support her feelings and excitement."
Late last year, McCready was in the news when she took her 5-year-old son Zander, of whom she did not have custody, from her parents' home in Florida. After three days and a court order to return Zander, police found the pair and returned him to McCready's mom. The singer was never charged.
