Madrid: Spanish pop star Alejandro Sanz has announced the birth of his third child, a boy named Dylan, in a message on Twitter.

"And life made way amid siren songs ... and Dylan came into the world to save it from itself ... welcome," wrote the 42-year-old singer-songwriter, a Latin Grammy Award- and Grammy Award-winning artist known for "Corazon partio" (Broken Heart) and many other hits.

Dylan is the first child from Sanz`s relationship with his girlfriend and former assistant, Raquel Pereda.

Sanz was married until 2005 with Mexican model and actress Jaydy Michel and the two had a daughter, Manuela, together. He also fathered another son, Alexander, with Puerto Rican fashion designer Valeria Rivera.
