A baby girl has officially joined Eli Young Band‘s brood. Frontman Mike Eli and his wife, Kacey, welcomed Kline Olivia Diaz on Monday (July 30) in Dallas. The little girl, who is the first child for the couple, weighed in at 6 lbs. and 15 oz. She was expected to arrive in August.

“They tell you about this feeling that is beyond comparison…” the ‘Even If It Breaks Your Heart’ hitmaker told People, adding, “and the moment Kacey and I laid our eyes on little Kline we understood it’s absolutely the coolest thing ever!”

Needless to say, he’s excited to be a new dad. In naming Kline, Eli and his wife carried on the tradition of ‘K’ names, which apparently run in their family. The singer will get to enjoy a few days of quality time with his little one before he and the band are expected onstage with Rascal Flatts in Charlotte next week.
