LONDON (AP) _ Phil Collins has become a father for the fourth time, and is already bragging about the tiny boy's voice.
The singer's Swiss-born wife, Orianne, gave birth to Nicholas Grev Austin in Geneva on Saturday, according to an announcement released Tuesday in London. The baby weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces.
``It is difficult to express just how happy Orianne and I are with the arrival of little Nicholas,'' said Collins' statement.
``He's got a huge voice and a strong temperament _ he's wonderful.''
Collins, 50, has two grown children from his first marriage and an 11-year-old daughter from his second marriage.
Orianne, 29, became his third wife in 1999.
