The Lady Antebellum singer and his wife, Cassie, welcomed their first child on Thursday, the couple announced via a post on her website, Womanista.

"We can't stop staring at him and he hasn't stopped chitchatting with us since he arrived," the proud parents shared, along with a picture of their 7 lb. 9 oz. newborn baby, Ward. "He's got momma's nose and daddy's eyes and vocal chords and a full head of blond hair."

This big new chapter in the couple's life comes after Charles announced last year that Lady Antebellum would be stepping out of the spotlight for awhile.

"As a band, we've talked about wanting to get off the hamster wheel for a little bit and let the fans miss us for a second," he told Rolling Stone Country. "We want to spend some time to write a record like we did for our first record. But it's always been go, go, go, so we'll try to get re-inspired a little bit."
