James Durbin just keeps on celebrating.

The former American Idol contestant and his wife Heidi welcomed their second child at 6:14 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 21, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Daughter Kinzee Cruz weighed 8 lbs., 11 oz., and measured 21¾ inches long.

“Nothing compares to holding your brand new baby. She’s gonna be worth every sleepless night,” the proud new parents tell PEOPLE. “We’re so thankful to have her.”

Durbin’s new album, Celebrate, took on a whole new meaning when the singer, 25, announced in April that there was another baby on the way.

“We’re looking forward to even more laughter in the house and those silly baby expressions,” he said.

But it was the couple’s 5-year-old son Hunter that couldn’t wait to become a big brother.

“He’s very excited,” Durbin told PEOPLE. “Since we spaced them apart from each other, Hunter will probably be a big help.”
