Country music star Holly Williams has welcomed her first child.

The singer, who is the granddaughter of music legend Hank Williams, and her husband Chris Coleman added another member to their famous family on Tuesday (30Sep14).

Williams gave birth to daughter Stella June Coleman in Nashville, Tennessee, and continued the long family tradition of naming their child after members in the family.

Stella was the name of a great, great aunt, while June was Williams' maternal grandmother.

The new mother tells People magazine, "She (June) was the grandparent I was closest to by far and she was just such an amazing, lovely, southern dream of a grandmother to me. It's really important to teach my child about my grandparents and where they came from and why I was so close to them."

Williams wed drummer Coleman, who tours with Kings of Leon, in 2009.
