Baltimore musician Rye Rye welcomes second child, a son

Baltimore rapper Rye Rye announced the birth of her second child, a boy, on social media sites this week. 

"And he is OUTTTTTTTT! Omg I'm so happy..." she posted on Instagram at 2:25 a.m. Monday. "I'm done! My baby boy is here! Thanks everyone for the safe and best wishes." 

Rye Rye did not immediately respond to a request for comment. 

The musician and dancer, who has collaborated with rapper M.I.A. and appeared in "21 Jump Street" last year, kept her pregnancy discretely hidden in baggy tops in posts on Instagram and Twitter until just a few days ago. 

Earlier this week, Rye Rye, 22, posted selfies on Instagram in which a flowing lavender dress clung to her pregnant belly. 

"Finally about to have my baby boy! In labor and I'm at 9cm more cm to dilate and he'll be on his way woohoo!!! I'm super excited and exhausted hoping this go by quick!! Praying for a safe delivery and healthy little kid," she wrote.

The singer, whose given name is Ryeisha Berrain, kept up a busy schedule throughout her pregnancy, including a performance at Scapescape in Station North in late August.

Rye Rye's first child, a daughter named Kennidi, was born in 2009.
