Scott Stapp, Wife Welcome a Daughter

Posted on

Former Creed frontman Scott Stapp and his wife, Jaclyn, welcomed their first child together on Thursday, the singer’s rep tells PEOPLE.

Milén Hayat Stapp was born in Miami at approximately 1:00 p.m. She weighed in at 6 lbs., 7 oz. and was 20 inches long.

The baby’s name has a significant meaning, Stapp’s rep said in a statement. “Milén has been chosen from Scott’s Cherokee heritage for its definition, which is ‘to have the creativity of God.’ Hayat is from Jaclyn’s Jordanian upbringing and is simply ‘to give life.’ ”

Stapp, 33, and Jaclyn, 26, wed in February at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, a European-style estate on the waterfront of Biscayne Bay in Florida.

Jaclyn, 2004’s Miss New York, wore a Vera Wang gown at the nuptials. Stapp’s son from a previous relationship, Jagger, 8, served as the best man.

Stapp has written a song for his new daughter, which will be on his forthcoming second solo album.
