She’s here – Jake Owen’s daughter has arrived. The singer announced the birth of Paris Hartley with a sweet tweet on Monday, April 29.

“It’s a Willie great day!!” Owen he wrote. “Well Happy Birthday to Willie Nelson, born on this day April 29th, 1933. Also, happy birthday to my little beautiful daughter Paris Hartley Owen born today April 29th, 2019 #GodIsGreat.”

Welcoming another daughter (Owen is the father to six-year-old Olive Pearl) was exciting for the Florida native, who fully embraces his role as dad.

“To be blessed with another beautiful little girl is a big deal because I do think that it takes special men to be a great dad to a little girl,” he told PEOPLE earlier this month. “And I feel like, thanks to Pearl, she’s shown me how to be a good father to little girls, and I’ll be a great father to Paris because of that.”

Owen and his girlfriend Erica Hartlein shared the news of their growing family during an appearance on ABC’s I’m Coming Home special, which aired over Thanksgiving 2018.

“This’ll throw you guys for a loop. [We] haven’t told anyone, but Erica and I will be having a little addition to our Owen family,” he told his parents and twin brother during a poolside chat.
