Vince Gill has earned the new title of Grandpa! The iconic singer welcomed his very first grandchild on Monday (Aug. 4).

Gill’s daughter Jenny and her husband, Josh Van Valkenburg, became parents to a sweet little boy called Wyatt Gill Van Valkenburg, People confirms. The baby’s name reflects the obvious love and respect they have for the country singer.

Although they’ve all been pretty mum about the birth, the whole family is undoubtedly over the moon about their new arrival. In March, Gill’s daughter excitedly revealed her big news on Facebook, exclaiming, “Josh and I are so excited to be parents! I am 18 weeks along which makes me due in mid August. Will keep you posted.”

Wyatt will undoubtedly get his share of beautifully-sung lullabies from his grandpa Gill, step-grandma Amy Grant, grandmother Janis Oliver and his mom, who is also a singer. Jenny is the only daughter of Gill and Oliver, and she got her enviable set of pipes from the two.

Congratulations to Gill and the whole family on their brand new bundle of joy!
