It's a boy for Fantasia Barrino (27)! And the name is...Dallas Xavier Barrino!

Baby Dallas was born earlier today (Tuesday), weighing in at 7 pounds, 9 ounces. This is the second child for the season-three winner of American Idol. She also has a 10-year-old daughter, Zion.

“I feel so blessed that my son Dallas Xavier was born healthy, and is a wonderful new addition to our family,” Fantasia told People Magazine. “I thank all my fans for their well wishes and continued support.”

The new mom is staying mum on the identity of the baby's father. But speculation is it's Antwaun Cook, whom Fantasia's been dating amid scandal since the summer of 2010.

Congrats to the family!
