It’s a boy!

Eli Young Band’s Mike Eli is officially a father of two. Eli and his wife, Kacey, welcomed their latest addition on Monday, July 9 in Dallas, TX.

“The EYB family grew today by welcoming a little boy to the world! Kash Eli was born happy and healthy this morning and we couldn’t be happier,” wrote Eli in a post to Instagram. “Thanks for all the well wishes. We are truly a lucky family!”

According to PEOPLE, Kash entered the world at 8:32 a.m., weighing in at 6 lbs, 7oz. He joins big sister Kline Olivia, who turns 6 this year.

In 2012, Eli shared with PEOPLE his desire to have a large family and how his perspective had changed after welcoming Kline.

“A lot of people tell you that they can’t explain fatherhood because no one can know that feeling until you actually hold your child for the first time. It’s even better than you think it is,” he said shortly after her birth. “I’ve always wanted to be a father. I never had that moment where I thought I’d wait forever or loved having no responsibility. I’ve always looked forward to having kids.”

The EYB family grew once more in 2018 when the band’s guitarist James Young welcomed a baby girl earlier this year.
