Britney Spears gave birth to her second child early Tuesday morning, a 6-pound, 11-ounce baby boy, according to US Weekly. Citing a source in close contact with the 24-year-old Spears, MTV said the baby was born by Caesarian section at a hospital in the Los Angeles area.

The birth was just two days before the first birthday of Sean Preston, the new baby's big brother and the firstborn of Spears and husband Kevin Federline. Celebrity Web sites speculated that Spears planned to have the birth induced on Thursday so that the siblings could share the same birthday.

There was no confirmation or denial from Spears' camp. The office of Spears' publicist said it had no information.
