Frankie Ballard is a dad – of a little girl.

The singer and his wife Christina welcomed their first child, Pepper Lynn, on Saturday, Feb. 8, they shared on Instagram.

“Frankie, I’ll never forget this unbelievable day with you and how my heart grew a schimillion times watching you hold our baby girl,” wrote Christina. “Thank you Jesus for my sweet family of 3. My cup is running over and full to the brim. Pepper Lynn you’re a precious angel and beautiful gift from Heaven and I love being your Mommy🙏🏼 Cue all the tears 😭”

In the photo, the beaming new mom showed off an adorable baby sized leather jacket, adorned in studs and a bandana. Ballard commented on the pic, writing “MY SOUL IS ON FIRE WITH LOVE. Chriss, You claimed Motherhood with grace and strength.”

The couple, who wed in March 2017, announced that they’d be expecting back in November.

“I can only describe it as a combination of emotion and words. Shock-tacular, grateful, awe,” told PEOPLE of his approaching fatherhood. “I had a thousand prayers answered in one appointment. To see toes wigglin’ and a strong heartbeat sent electricity through my bones.”
