Jessica Lynch gives birth to baby girl

Former prisoner of war Jessica Lynch gave birth to a girl whom she named in honor of a fallen comrade in Iraq.

Dakota Ann Robinson was delivered by Caesarean section, said Lynch's publicist, Aly Goodwin Gregg.

"She's fabulous and fat," Gregg said. "She's beautiful."

Lynch and her boyfriend, Wes Robinson, named their daughter in honor of Lynch's friend, Army Spc. Lori Piestewa, who was the first woman to be killed in combat in Iraq. Piestewa's middle name was Ann, and Dakota means friendship or ally, Gregg said.

Piestewa died and Lynch was captured when their unit was ambushed on March 23, 2003, near Nasiriyah, the AP reports.

Lynch suffered two spinal fractures, nerve damage and a shattered right arm, right foot and left leg when her Humvee crashed during the firefight.

Her capture and dramatic nighttime rescue made her an instant celebrity. The 23-year-old is now a university sophomore.

While Lynch still has health problems, Gregg said she came through the C-section "like a champ."

"Jessie's doing great, the baby did great," she said.

The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
