"Our baby boy is here! We're all in love over here... and exhausted," she wrote.

Ali and Rasberry are also parents to 3-year-old son Edward. Ali told Essence she gave birth to Alejandro in August.

"Vaughn and I are gushing with joy over the birth of our newest family member," she said. "Our sleepless night are deliriously fun."

Ali brought attention to the black maternal mortality rate in an essay for Essence published Wednesday. She recounted her difficult birth with Edward in 2016, and said she chose a black midwife for her second pregnancy.

"She conducts herself in a way that is culturally and spiritually attuned to me and she trusts in our ability to make informed decisions," Ali said.
