Newborns seem to be a new trend in country music, as this news follows the birth of Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles' son Magnus Hamilton on Thursday.

Scott and Tyrell wed January 7 after getting engaged on Independence Day in 2011. On Monday Lady Antebellum announced the launching of their new charity, LadyAID. The mission of the organization is to aid children's hospitals.
