And baby makes FOUR!

Brantley Gilbert and his wife Amber welcomed their second child, a baby girl, on Monday, September 9, his rep confirmed to People.

Braylen Hendrix Gilbert arrived shortly after 1 pm on Monday at Piedmont Hospital in Athens, Georgia. At birth, she weighed 6 lbs., 7 oz. and measured 19½ inches long.

“It’s such a blessing for us to welcome Braylen and both momma and baby girl are doing great,” Gilbert shared with the publication.

Braylen Hendrix joins the couple’s first child, Barrett Hardy-Clay, 22 months.

The arrival of Brantley’s daughter couldn’t have come at a more exciting time for the country star. This week, Gilbert’s latest single and duet with Lindsay Ell, “What Happens In A Small Town,” cracked the Top 10 at country radio. He also recently announced a 2020 tour and is preparing to release his much anticipated new album, Fire & Brimstone, on October 4.

Gilbert’s forthcoming album features 15 tracks, including “Man That Hung The Moon,” a special song he penned for his children.

“There was a time in my life where I’m not necessarily proud of the man I was,” Gilbert previously shared. “I want our children to have a song where they can hear my voice say ‘I love you’ and acknowledges that there’s going to come a time when they figure out I’m not a ‘super hero.’ I’m human; I’ve made mistakes. And I’ll make a lot more, but there’s a man who really did hang the moon, who’s got your back and always will, and if I’ve done my job as a father, they’ll know that truth.”

Gilbert wrote the song shortly after he and Amber found out they were expecting their daughter.

“I sat down to write them a letter, but I’m a songwriter first so I ended up with this song,” he explained.

It’s safe to say the Gilbert Family has a lot to celebrate.

Congratulations to Brantley and Amber!
