M.I.A.'s little guy finally has a name. After a month of guesses and speculation about the newborn's name, the gossip mongers at TMZ -- yeah, we're getting all TMZ-lite over here again -- finally leaked an image of the baby's birth certificate onto the internet, confirming the full name of the baby and that M.I.A. is actually two years older than we thought she was.
The birth certificate reads Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman as the baby boy's name, and states M.I.A's date of birth as July 18, 1975, rather than July 17, 1977 as previously published, according to NME.
Prior to the leak of the birth certificate, in proper-capslock-M.I.A. fashion, the rapper released a MySpace blog to fans saying, "MY BABY IS NOT CALLED ICKITT, PICKIT OR LICKIT THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL THE HOLLYWOOD PRESS. HES A BABY, HE DONT NEED PRESS! I DIDNT RELEASE THE BABY NAME BECAUSE I DIDNT THINK IT WAS NEWS!!!! BUT I WILL BE BACK WITH SOMETHING NEWS WORTHY SOON , TILL THEN GO PICK ON APPLE. SATCHEL, AND MOON UNIT."
Sorry M.I.A., but your baby's name is now news. Regardless of the long-winded name (although we expected nothing less) we're just glad she just added the name of her debut album into her son's name instead of pulling a Michael Jackson, and naming the tiny tot M.I.A. II or Blanket (not to be confused with the other WTF Blanket).
