Music mogul Tommy Mottola, Mexican songstress Thalia welcome son
Music mogul Tommy Mottola and Mexican jill-of-all-trades sensational, Thalia, welcomed a little bit of happiness this weekend with the birth of their second child, Matthew Alejandro Mottola.
Little Matthew took his first breaths on Saturday at 11:48 a.m., coming in at 7 lbs 14 oz. Through their close circle of friends, AOL learned that both baby and mommy are both in perfect health. According to our sources, Thalia's labor was a quick one in which her little one was delivered via cesarean section. Mottola, along with the couple's 4-year-old daughter, Sabrina, accompanied Thalia at the hospital.
Their son, one of four children fathered by Mottola, who is estimated to be worth around $100 million, was born in New York's Mount Sinai Hospital. Sabrina was also born at the hospital.
The birth of their son marks a happy benchmark for the 39-year-old singer, writer, actress and entrepreneur, who suffered a major blow in May with the death of her manager and mother, Yolanda Miranda, who died of a heart attack. Sources say Thalia, who has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, held a picture of her mother during the delivery.
After taking in his drink of mother's milk, Matthew, or Matteo, took his first nap, while mom rested momentarily before receiving calls from well-wishers. Thalia also took time out to tweet her followers on Twitter about her special delivery, writing: "Es un niño! It's a boy! :-) :-)."
Mottola protege and ex-wife, Mariah Carey, recently gave birth to twins on April 30. Mottola, 61, who is credited as the instrumental force behind Mariah Carey's early success, has two children, Sarah and Michael, from a previous marriage.
Thalia stayed in touch with fans throughout, tweeting her arrival to the hospital before delivery.
Congratulate the couple here.
