"I'm so excited to finally see my little angel and man does she have lungs on her I guess she's gearing up to be the next American Idol [winner]," Bennett told Us.
A representative for Bennett added that she was "doing well and recovering" and that Jamecia Bennett and her family were "filled with excitement and welcomes their bundle of joy," according to Us.
Bennett, who had been nicknamed "Princess P" while on Idol, finished fifth on the show's 2006 season. Her second album -- a Christmas album titled A Royal Christmas -- will be released on October 14.
