"Ames Alexander, welcome to the Mooney family. Asher has been so excited to meet you, 'baby brover,'" Mooney wrote. "You are already so loved. I'm so proud to be your dad. And you have have the best momma on planet earth. Yesterday, Asher asked Hannah when baby brother's mom was gonna come pick him up and take him to his house...so we might be in for a slight rude awakening. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes."

"Welcome to our lives, Ames Alexander," Hannah shared in her own post. "The world is already a brighter place because you're in in! Oh, how your daddy and I have prayed over your precious life. I can't believe God chose us to love you forever, but I'm sure glad He did. Now, let the adventures begin!"

Baby Ames joins big brother Asher, 3. Mooney and Billingsley announced in August that they were expecting their second child, sharing a series of photos of Asher sitting in front of a blue and pink heart drawn in sidewalk chalk. In the snaps, Asher puts his hand over the blue heart, with a video showing the toddler happily exclaiming, "We're having a baby boy!"

"Celebrating a number 1 with baby number 2!" Shay wrote, referring to Dan + Shay's "All to Myself." "Hannah and I have been dying to share the news. We thought for sure we'd be announcing a baby girl, but God has other plans for the Mooney's. Found out today we're having a BOY! Bout to be a new duo in town."
