Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus and his wife, Allison, welcomed their first child Friday (Dec. 17). Madeline Leigh DeMarcus was born in Nashville at 4:49 p.m., weighing in at 6 pounds., 9 ounces.
"Allison and I are thrilled!" Jay said in a prepared statement. "Madeline is absolutely gorgeous; she looks just like her daddy! Both mom and baby are doing well."
"Leigh is Ali's middle name and we finally settled on a [first] name that we both liked together," Jay told Country Weekly when revealing their daughter's name in September, saying she'd be called "Maddy."
Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox and wife Tara have two daughters, Brittany and Brooklyn, and Joe Don Rooney and wife Tiffany have a son, Jagger, and a new daughter, Raquel Blue.
Jay and Allison, who is a CMT personality, were married on May 15, 2004.
