There's a new member of the Cash family!

Country singer-songwriter John Carter Cash and his wife Ana Cristina welcomed their second child, James Kristoffer Cash, into the world on Friday, according to posts on the parents' Instagram accounts.

"Ana Cristina and I are honored to share the announcement of his birth with the world!" John, 51, captioned a photo of his newborn son swaddled in a crib.

Baby Cash came in at 6 lbs., 13 oz., at 9:13 a.m., according to his mother's post.

"Thank you for your support and for respecting our wishes for privacy during this special time as we bond with baby boy. 👶," Ana, 36, wrote.

Nearly a year after they wed, Ana gave birth to the couple's first child, Grace June Cash, on September 11, 2017. Grace weighed nearly the same as James: 6 lbs., 3 oz.
