Tyler Farr's baby girl is here!

The 36-year-old country crooner's wife Hannah has given birth to the couple's first child together, a daughter named Hollis Caroline Farr, his rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

Baby Hollis was born at Williamson Medical Center in Franklin, Tennessee, on Wednesday, Jan. 27, at 1:41 p.m. She weighed 4 lbs., 12 oz., and measured 19½ inches long.

"After some complications, we are excited and shocked that she is here six weeks early!" the couple tells PEOPLE.

Hollis' arrival came one day after Hannah, an ICU registered nurse, revealed on her Instagram Story that she'd been "unexpectedly" admitted to the hospital as a result of "preeclampsia & blood pressure issues."

"[Hollis] is spending time in the [neonatal intensive care unit], but doing well," the new parents share. "We can't wait to bring our girl home! Thank you to our doctors, nurses and everyone involved here at the hospital."

The couple revealed their exciting pregnancy news exclusively to PEOPLE in October, alongside a set of three sweet maternity photos.

"We are so excited, blessed and thankful to announce baby Farr coming in March 2021!" they said at the time. "In one of the most stressful and challenging years of our lives, words cannot express how much hope and joy we have found in this baby girl."

"We can't wait for this new adventure!" added the then-parents-to-be.

Hannah shared a collection of photos from her baby shower on Jan. 21, during which she wore a pink long-sleeved dress that showed off her baby bump and white booties.

"33 weeks 💗 thank you to everyone who came out yesterday to shower baby girl & I! we are so blessed," she wrote the next day alongside a Boomerang clip of herself at the event.

Farr and Hannah celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary last fall, having tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony near Nashville, Tennessee, in October 2016.

"I've only had a few serious relationships in my life and I was not expecting to fall off the deep end when I met her," the singer told PEOPLE after their nuptials. "But when I first began spending time with her, it was just over. I just knew. She is probably the kindest person I've ever met."
