AceShowbiz - Country star Jimmie Allen is a new dad.
The singer and his wife, Alexis, welcomed their second daughter, Zara James, on Saturday (16Oct21).
Allen, who is currently competing on U.S. show "Dancing With the Stars", cancelled a concert in Forest City, North Carolina, due to a "family emergency."
It later emerged he had dashed home to be by his wife's side as she gave birth.
The newborn joins sister Naomi, who is almost two, and Jimmie's seven-year-old son Aadyn from a previous relationship.
Allen and Alexis wed in May (21) and announced the pregnancy two weeks later.
"The new addition to our family is here and we couldn't be happier to finally meet her. Alexis you're a champion, I love you and so thankful for you," the country music crooner posted a new picture with his wife and their newborn.
The couple have seemingly decided on the name of their baby weeks before she was born. Proud mother Alexis has been posting on her own Instagram messages about looking forward to meeting baby Z.
Congratulations poured in for the family. "HOW IS IT POSSIBLE that you are this stunningly gorgeous just after giving birth?!!!! Congratulations you both!!!! Xoxoxoxo," singer JoJo gushed.
