Lauryn Hill has become a grandmother. The 41-year-old singer's son, Zion Marley, and his girlfriend welcomed their son Zephaniah into the world on the weekend.

Zion's father, Rohan Marley, took to social media to celebrate the baby's arrival, citing a passage from the Bible: "In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack."

And Zion also took to his own Instagram page to gush about the new arrival, adding: "If there EVER was a question who I do it for ... #myson (sic)"

Lauryn who found fame as a member of the Fugees loves to perform, but disappointed her fans when she turned up two hours late to a concert in Atlanta because she needed to "align her energy".

She shared at the time: "I don't show up late to shows because I don't care. And I have nothing but love and respect for my fans. The challenge is aligning my energy with the time, taking something that isn't easily classified or contained, and trying to make it available for others. I don't have an on/off switch. I am at my best when I am open, rested, sensitive, and liberated to express myself as truthfully as possible. For every performance that I've arrived to late, there have been countless others where I've performed in excess of two hours, beyond what I am contracted to do, pouring everything out on the stage."
