Kimora Lee Simmons & Djimon Hounsou welcome a son

Kimora Lee Simmons and her boyfriend, Oscar-nominated actor Djimon Hounsou, have welcomed their first child together, a son. Their son was born Saturday, May 30th, and no name has been released thus far. The little boy joins his big half-sisters Ming and Aoki (Russell Simmons is their dad). This is Djimon’s first child, as far as my research shows. My research also shows that Djimon’s middle name is Gaston, which is totally hot. I’d imagine Kimora whispers “Djimon Gaston” to him when they’re in bed. But I digress.

Even though I consider Kimora Lee Simmons one of the biggest famewhores out there, I have to give her a lot of credit for keeping her relationship with Djimon Hounsou on the downlow. Allegedly, they’ve been dating for more than two years, and you rarely, if ever hear anything about them. There was the initial announcement of Kimora’s pregnancy in January, and some rumors that she and Djimon got married (they didn’t, as far as I can tell). The last thing I can remember was a report from April about the baby shower they threw – other than that, they’ve been flying under the radar. This surprises me for two reasons – Kimora is first, a tireless self-promoter and second, when you’re sleeping with Djimon Hounsou, how are you not telling everyone you meet? Well, now she has the proof:

Kimora Lee Simmons and actor Djimon Hounsou have welcomed their first child together.

“Kimora and Djimon are the proud parents of a new baby boy,” her rep tells “Both mother and child are doing great.”

Simmons, 34, also took to her Twitter page to confirm the news. She wrote, “It’s a boy! Thanks to everyone out there for all your well wishes! More to come. Thank God. And God Bless! Kimora + Djimon Love & Light, KLS”

No baby name was announced.

Simmons has two daughters, Ming Lee, 9, and Aoki Lee, 7, with hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, whom she divorced in 2008 after nearly 10 years of marriage.

“I have a lot of hang-ups in life with men. I’m not very trusting,” she told Harper’s Bazaar last year. “After my breakup, I thought, ‘I don’t need anything.'”

But after meeting Hounsou in February 2007, she said, “I have someone who has the heart, the soul, and the hotness.”

Added Hounsou , “My first impression has always been the same, that she’s a very beautiful lady, very capable and intelligent and smart with great family values. She’s the least high-maintenance lady I’ve ever dated.”

Asked if she wanted more kids, Simmons previously told Us, “I would love to. I practice everyday.”

“She’s the least high-maintenance lady I’ve ever dated”? This poor bastard has had the misfortune of dating women more high-maintenance than Kimora. Poor Djimon. No, no, I won’t go there. I’m sure they’re very pleased, and it’s good to hear mother and child are happy and healthy. After naming her girls with Asian-influenced names, I bet the little boy gets an African name, to honor Djimon’s Benin roots.

    There’s no way she would do anything to anger that beautiful man–they must have had a talk about it when they started dating-that he wouldn’t put up with any of that publicity BS.

    I believe a few months ago they had a wedding like ceremony that wasn’t legally binding.

    He’s either the most beautiful child ever or unfortunate looking. BUT as long as he is loved and well-cared for, that’s what counts. Congrats to these two, even her. Ug.

  3. Tia says:

    He is soooooooooooooooooooo UGLY!!! Why in the world would she want him to be the other half of her child.. ICK ! They sure won’t look like her other two..sad, sad..

  4. Bodhi says:

    Wow, she was pregnant forever!!

  5. Wow says:

    Beauty is subjective, Tia. Her other little girls were cute when they were little, but have you seen them recently?Not that it should even even matter though. 🙂

    Dijimon is attractive to some. I’ve liked him from his Janet Jackson video. He is aging nicely and doesn’t look his age, which is more than I can say for some of the more commonly known actors who are considred sexy in Hollywood. Look at Mel Gibson. Ick.

    Congrats!!!! I adore Kimora! I bet the kid will be gorgeous!

  7. the original kate says:

    why is she touching my boyfriend?

  8. Maritza says:

    I loved his work in “Four Feathers”, that’s a great movie. The man is a great actor.

  9. orion70 says:

    Is she standing on a box or something? I always thought he was super tall.

    I think he is an amazing actor. I absolutely loved him in “In America”. This seemed like an odd match to me when I heard, but hey, to each their own, congrats to them.

    I found his “least high-maintenance” comment laughable however….does that not mean low maintenance? Or is he acknowledging the fact that all of the women he’s dated are high maintenance, and that KLS is simply the lesser of many evils ? lol

    He is going to be one tall child.

    I do not know whose eyes some of these crazy bitches are looking with, but Djimon is one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL men on the planet. Believe that!!!
