The country star and his wife Kaitlyn welcomed daughter Remi MCKenna on Monday (21Mar16) in Franklin, Tennessee.

The happy parents shared the first shot of their new family of four with Us Weekly, showing them at a hospital with little Remi sleeping in Kaitlyn's arms, as Chris and their five-year-old son Caden beam with pride next to them.

Chris previously told the publication they had problems conceiving another child after Caden, so their daughter was quite a welcome addition to their clan.

"We are super excited about having our first girl," he explained. "We have a five-year-old little boy who is our pride and joy, and now it's time to welcome daddy's little girl, and mommy's sidekick.

"We'd spent five years with no luck with conceiving a second child. Just when we thought it was unlikely and wasn't going to happen, our little boy came to us and said he wanted a sister, so we told him to pray to God that night! Well, one month later, we were pregnant! We feel so blessed and are extremely excited."

Remi's arrival comes two months after Chris' LoCash bandmate Preston Brust became a first-time father. He and his wife Kristen welcomed daughter Love Lily Brust in January (16).
