The star and his wife Emily welcomed little Evelyne Nadine on Thursday (12Jan17).

The baby arrived a few weeks early - something Pitney joked about in his Instagram baby announcement under a photo of the newborn.

The I Met Merle Haggard Today singer wrote: "Well, Evelyne Nadine decided to have her birthday early! Em and I had a number of scares this morning but God intercepted every one of them with His powerful sovereign love... I couldn’t be more thankful to have our baby and my wife safe and loved."

The couple wed in March (16).
