Brett Young and his wife, Taylor, are officially parents of two, welcoming daughter Rowan Marie on July 21. The proud parents shared the happy news on Instagram over the weekend, posting a photo of Rowan wrapped in a blanket topped with a large pink bow.

We are so blessed."
The mom of two also shared how she and Young decided on their new daughter's name, including a note from her grandmother in her caption.

Not to the extent that I was disappointed at all that when we found out it was a girl because it's your child so you're excited," he said, adding, "I have a half-sister, but growing up in my house, my sister had already moved out so it was like me and my dad, and so that's why I was excited to have a boy, wanted that relationship, but I can't imagine having a better relationship with my child than I do with my daughter."
