Bo Bice is tickled pink!

The American Idol runner-up, 36, and his wife Caroline welcomed their fourth child — and first girl! — on Monday, April 23, the singer announced on his official website.

Daughter Merrin Elizabeth Joy weighed 8 lbs., 11 oz.

“Both mom and baby are doing great!” the site reads, along with a sweet snapshot of the proud new papa cradling his baby girl.

Bice and Caroline — who wed in 2005 — are also parents to sons Ean Jacob, 2, Caleb James, 3½, and Aidan Michael, 6½.
