Sheryl Crow adopts newborn baby
Sheryl Crow
Crow gave few details about the adoption in her online statement
American singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow has adopted her first child, she has announced on her website.

The Grammy-winning star, known for hits such as All I Wanna Do and Run Baby Run, said the boy was two weeks old and had been called Wyatt Steven.

This had a particular significance, she told fans in a statement, as Wyatt was her father's name while Steven was her younger brother.

"We are enjoying some very private family time," the 45-year-old added.

"Just wanted you to be the first to know."

Crow, who had surgery for breast cancer in the same month last year as splitting up with fiance Lance Armstrong, would not be releasing any further details, her publicist said.
