    Colombian singer Juanes is taking plenty of heat for trying to take his show to Havana.

    Juanes has been creating controversy in Miami for months over his "Peace Without Borders" concert in Cuba, but apparently he was creating a little something else behind closed doors - a baby.

    The Colombian rock star announced on his Twitter page that he has a newborn son, Dante, who was born over the weekend.

    The healthy baby boy is Juanes's third child with his wife, Karen. Both mom and baby are doing well, Juanes said in a recent tweet.

    We wonder how baby Dante would feel about all the ruckus his papi has created over his planned trip to Havana to rock the Communist house in the name of unity or commercialism, depending on who you listen to.

    The concert is scheduled for Sept. 20, and has nine other musical acts, headlined by Juanes.

    Since announcing his plans, Juanes has received death threats and had some of his CDs smashed by protesters in Miami who felt Juanes' money grab at the expense of the oppressed youth in Cuba was crossing the line.
