LOS ANGELES, California -- Pop princess Britney Spears is said to be getting her first taste of motherhood after reportedly giving birth to a baby boy.
The singer underwent a caesarean at Santa Monica's UCLA Medical Center, near Los Angeles, according to the magazine US Weekly and television show "Access Hollywood."
Britney, 23, and her husband Kevin Federline announced the pregnancy in April.
Reports suggest that they will call the baby either London Preston or Preston Michael. Her top name for a girl was Addison Shye.
It is the first child for Britney, while Kevin, 27, has two young children -- Kori, three, and one-year-old Kaleb -- with ex-girlfriend, Shar Jackson.
Last month, the singer revealed: "I have a feeling I'm going to have an operation. I don't know why but I hope so.
"My mom said giving birth was the most excruciating thing she's ever gone through in her life. So if a caesarian doesn't happen, I'll be like, 'Epidural, please.' "
The star, who has sold more than 60 million albums, has made no secret of her wish to start a family and has said she can see herself as a mother.
Shortly after tying the knot in a private ceremony last September, she announced she would be taking a break from music to enjoy married life and focus on motherhood.
"I've had a career since I was 16, have traveled around the world and back and even kissed Madonna," she wrote on her Web site.
"The only thing I haven't done so far is experience the closest thing to God and that's having a baby. I can't wait."
Britney hosted a Moroccan-themed baby shower at her Malibu home last month.
Presents included a white wrought-iron bassinet from her mother, Lynne, a car seat, a stroller, an infant bathtub and lots of stuffed animals.
