Joe Nichols and wife Heather have welcomed their first child, daughter Dylan River Nichols, born April 17. Dylan weighed in at 7 pounds, 5 ounces and measured 21 and 1/4 inches long.
Mother and daughter are doing just fine according to the proud papa.
"Our prayers have been answered," Heather said in a statement posted on Joe's website. "We went through years of loss and heartbreak to get to this point and now our little baby girl is here. I want to thank everyone for their well wishes, thoughts and prayers and our doctors and nurses who have walked along side us in this process. I know that we are going to love this little girl, and I am so thankful that she is ours."
Joe, also in a statement, agrees: "We have been trying to have a baby together for many years, and this gift is not something we take for granted. We are going to try to be the best parents possible."
Joe and Heather married in 2007.
