Former American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino has given birth to a baby boy!

Dallas Xavier Barrino was born on Tuesday - more than two weeks before his December 29 due date - and weighed in at 7 lbs., 9 oz. and 21 inches long.

As was first to report, the singer went into labor on Monday and checked into the Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina, at around 1:30 p.m. PST.

The new addition is the half-brother to Fantasia's 10-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, Zion.

Dallas' dad is believed to be Fantasia's boyfriend, Antwaun Cook, who is currently still married to his estranged wife, Paula — who claims Fantasia and Antwaun began an affair together while she and her husband were trying to patch up their marriage.

Sources told that Cook was at the hospital with Fantasia, 27.
