Apparently not even going into labor can keep celebs from tweeting.

At least that seems to be the case with new mom and member of the E! fam Kimora Lee Simmons. The Phat Fashions CEO took to her Twitter page late last night to let the world know that her baby was on the way.

Tweeted Simmons, "It's time!! No turning back! At hospital in labor right now!!," followed shortly after by, "Having contractions now! Ooo- wee! It's like WHOA! Love & Light, KLS."

She was even nice enough to send along a TwitPic from her hospital bed—looking nothing short of glamorous, of course.

Sixteen hours later, E! News can confirm that Simmons and her partner, Djimon Hounsou, are now proud parents. Says her rep, "Kimora and Djimon's son was born Saturday morning, May 30."

The face of Baby Phat and the Oscar-nominated actor have been together since March 2007, following her split from Russell Simmons. The two Simmons share custody of their daughters, Ming Lee, 9, and Aoki Lee, 6. This is Hounsou's first child.

Simmons and her gorgeous girls currently star on her hit reality show, Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane on E! sister station The Style Network.  

While she has yet to tweet her new son's name, we're sure that as soon as Simmons is well-rested and back to her fabulous self, we'll receive the update—via TwitterBerry, of course.
