Headline I'd like to see: Singer gives birth to full-grown man

Mr. Rewrite has to assume there was a chance of Alicia Keys giving birth to a teenage boy. That's the only reason he can see for so many headlines announcing that she's given birth to a baby boy.

There's a place for baby in such headlines – ... welcomes a baby boy works, for example –  but combining gives birth and baby is gratingly redundant.

With that said, let Mr. Rewrite be the zillionth person to congratulate the songstress on giving birth to a boy.
