Paris Bennett, American Idol


Hollywood's other Paris has just birthed un bébé.

Former American Idol contestant Paris Bennett welcomed a daughter Monday afternoon, apparently consulting her family's Rand McNally guide to baby names and dubbing her first-born Egypt.

The 20-year-old was in labor for five hours in a Minnesota hospital before delivering the child, who tipped the scales at 5 pounds, 15 ounces.

It's the first child for Bennett and her partner, who has chosen to stay out of the public eye.

The onetime reality star, who was dubbed "Princess P" during her Idol reign and who has a Christmas album due out next week, says that her progeny is already showing signs of following in her footsteps.

"I'm so excited to finally see my little angel—and man, does she have lungs on her. I guess she's gearing up to be the next American Idol."

Maybe not if Parker Aiken has anything to say about it.
