Cody Webb is a daddy!

The country singer, 30, and his wife Hayley are the proud new parents of a baby girl named Josie Layne Webb, they reveal exclusively to PEOPLE, sharing her adorable first photos.

Baby Josie arrived on Sunday, April 14, at 3:36 p.m. local time in Nashville, Tennessee. She measured 17 inches long and weighed in at 6 lbs., 5 oz.

“We’ve heard people say there’s no feeling like this in the world, but it’s truly indescribable until you have felt it firsthand,” Webb tells PEOPLE of new parenthood. “This little girl has no idea how many adventures she has ahead, and we couldn’t feel more blessed that she is here and healthy. God is good.”

Of their first child’s moniker, Webb — who tied the knot with Hayley, 30, in May 2014 — says it was a name the couple just felt drawn to.

But it might take a little while for them to see her as a Josie, for a super-cute reason.

“We’ve been calling her ‘little bit’ Hayley’s entire pregnancy,” says the "She's Carolina" crooner. “It’s going to be hard to stop calling her that! We just loved the name Josie, and Layne seemed to fit with it. Now, we can call her JoJo.”

Webb announced the pregnancy in October, captioning his post, “1+1=3 … There are no words to describe how full my heart is right now. I’m so thankful and feel blessed beyond measure.”

The following month, he wrote alongside a cute Boomerang clip of his wife lifting up her shirt to reveal a pink balloon, “Ohhhh boy … #itsagirl I’m already feeling things I’ve never felt in my whole life. Gonna be such a blessing to have two amazing girls in my life.”

The Clemson alumnus and new dad recently released the music video for his newest single, “Gettin’ Somewhere,” which he co-wrote with Mike Mobley and Jason Matthews. Webb is currently on tour in the U.S., and is slated to release another single over the summer.

“Gettin’ Somewhere” is available for purchase now on amazon.com.
