Niki Taylor Baby – Former Celebrity Apprentice star Niki Taylor has given birth to a baby boy earlier today. The model and husband Burney Lamar welcomed son Rex Harrison this morning just after 11am.
Rex weighed in at 7 lbs, 5 oz, and measured 19 inches long and is the fourth addition to their brood and joins twins Jake and Hunter, 16, from her previous marriage and sister Ciel, who is two and a half years old.
The couple were married in December 2006 and announced they were expecting in May.
Taylor, 36, first hinted at the pregnancy on Twitter posting a picture of her holding an ultrasound image.
In the caption, she wrote: “Guess what’s in this photo?”
She quickly added: “YES!! We are expecting our fourth child! So happy and blessed!”
Niki, once the face of Covergirl make-up, famously fought her way back to health after a near-fatal car crash in May 2001.
She was badly injured when the car she was travelling in smashed into a utility pole after her then-boyfriend Chad Renegar lost control as he tried to answer his mobile phone.
The crash left Niki in a coma for six weeks after she suffered serious internal injuries including a collapse lung and a lacerated liver.
Taylor had 56 operations and doctors had to rebuild her back by implanting two steel rods to hold her spine together. She was bedridden for a month and also underwent years of substantial physical therapy.
She also launched a clothing shop in 2005 with her manager and friend Lou Taylor and a fragrance called Begin, later that year.
Nikki appeared in Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice earlier this year.
