Sinead Gives Birth To Fourth Child

Dublin, Ireland (AHN) - Just like her hit song 'Nothing Compares 2 U,' nothing can compare to her new bundle of joy.

Singer Sinead O'Connor has welcomed her fourth child into the family. The Grammy Award winner and her boyfriend, Frank Bonaclio celebrated the birth of O'Connor's fourth baby, and their first child together.

Yeshna Francis Neil was born on December 19 at Dublin's Mount Carmel Hospital. The newborn was scheduled to make his grand appearance on planet Earth during Christmas Eve. Although he came a bit early, he still managed to arrive just in time for the holidays.

Since his birth, reports that the baby boy has been struggling with pneumonia but is being treated at the NICU and is expected to recover soon so he could put his new mommy at ease.

O'Connor's other children - Jake, 18, Roisin, 10, and two-year-old Shane - are from three of her previous relationships, which include her former record producer husband, John Reynolds, and an Irish Times columnist named John Waters.
