Regina Spektor gives birth to son

The New York singer-songwriter thanks fans for well-wishes

Regina Spektor has had a baby, she announced yesterday (April 1).

The New York-based singer-songwriter revealed on Facebook that she has given birth to her first child, a son with her partner and fellow singer-songwriter Jack Dishel. The pair married in 2011.

“I wanted to let you know that Jack and I have been happily hanging out with our new little son and that all is going great!” she writes in the post. “Thank you for the tons of well wishes and good vibes.”


She continued that as the pair are “pretty private” she wouldn’t be posting any images of the baby or updates about him, but said that he is “super cute”.

According to reports, Spektor’s pregnancy meant that she was unable to go to this year’s Grammy Awards in January after being nominated for her track ‘You’ve Got The Time’, which was the theme song to Netflix series Orange Is The New Black.

Regina Spektor released her sixth album ‘What We Saw From The Cheap Seats’ in 2012. It was the follow up to 2009’s ‘Far’.
