Eric Church is a new daddy!

The country singer and his Katherine welcomed their first child on Monday, Oct. 3.

Boone McCoy was born at 8:35 a.m. in Nashville, Tennessee, weighing in at 7 lbs., 11 oz.

“Everybody always tells you what an awesome and unique experience being a parent is. Words can never do the feeling justice,” the new dad told People.

“I am very thankful and blessed to have a healthy and happy baby boy and baby mama.”

“It will be interesting to see how this new chapter in our life manifests itself musically,” he adds. “I’ve always made music that was representative of real life. Life doesn’t get more real than having a newborn at home.”

Church married music publisher Katherine Blasingame on Jan 8, 2008.

Congrats to them!
