CONGRATS to Yendi Phillips and Chino on the arrival of their baby girl

Congrats are in order we understand…according to the Jamaica Observer, Miss Jamaica Universe 2010 Yendi Phillips gave birth to a baby girl yesterday, she weighed 7lbs 11 ounces.

In April of this year, Yendi made a public announcement that she was having a baby, also revealing the father, which for some reason met many mixed reactions from the public.

Neway, the couple seem quite elated about their new relationship and baby and that is what matters:)

Congratulations to Yendi and Dancehall artiste Daniel ‘Chino’ McGregor, her child’s father, son of veteran Reggae artiste Freddie McGregor. This will be Chino’s second child and Yendi’s first.

..and for those overly concerned about her marital status, it has also been rumored that the couple are now engaged to be married…we have received no confirmation about this.

CONGRATS guys on your little pumpkin!!:)
