Friday, February 8th, 2008

Miami, FL, February 7, 2008—Tito Puente Jr., son of the late world-class percussionist Tito Puente and his longtime girlfriend Gloria Martinez, welcomed their son Tito Antonio Puente Jr. to the world. Little Puente Jr. was born at Palmetto General Hospital in Miami, FL. He is 7 pounds 3 ounces and 20 inches long with a smile just like his dad and grandfather.

“There have been many incredible moments in my life, but this is the greatest. I can not compare it to anything else, he is a true blessing in my life”, said Tito Puente Jr., leaving the medical center where his son was born. The artist, who stopped his tour to spend this week for the birth of his son, was joined by his mother Margaret Puente, who arrived from New York City in time for the occasion; Margaret is the widow of the late Tito Puente and grandmother to his daughter Miranda Cristina Puente, whom was born last year at the same hospital.

Dr. Robert Fojo presided over the delivery and confirmed that the baby is healthy; also stating that he was delighted to be part of this important moment in Tito Jr.´s life.

Meanwhile, the new father will continue with his concerts throughout the United States and abroad next week. Now celebrating the arrival of his son, as his father would, Tito Puente, Jr. and his son are having the time of their lives.
