Michelle Branch and her The Black Keys beau Patrick Carney are the proud parents of a healthy baby boy!

The "Everywhere" singer took to Instagram on Thursday (August 30) to announce the exciting news.

"Patrick and I are over the moon in love with our son Rhys James Carney born August 28th, 2018 At 11:48pm 8 lbs 13oz  20 inches," Branch wrote alongside a photo of the newest addition to the family. Three days prior to giving birth, the pop star revealed she was past her due date with another Instagram post.

"When you’ve passed your due date and your hens start laying their first eggs, you take it as a good omen," she wrote alongside a photo of fresh brown eggs, "thought this baby was gonna be a Leo but Virgo it is!" A day later, she posted a very pregnant picture of herself hoping the full moon does its magic, and it did!

Check out all three precious posts below.

Branch also has a 13-year-old daughter, Owen, whom she shares with ex-husband and former bassist Teddy Landau. She and Carney announced they were expecting in February. 

The musicians began dating when they met in 2015 and got engaged in July 2017. They put their wedding plans on hold when they found out Rhys was on the way.

Congratulations to the new parents!
