Jake Owen is one proud dad.

The "Made for You" singer took to Instagram on Sunday (May 12) to introduce his newborn daughter Paris, who arrived on April 29, to the world in honor of Mother's Day.

"What a Mother’s Day it is," Jake captioned a shot of him kissing his girlfriend Erica Hartlein, who held their little one in her arms as he held a ballon with their baby girl's name on it. "Pretty special first Mother’s Day for @ericahartlein and myself with our new little nugget Paris Hartley Owen."

Paris joins the country crooner's six-year-old daughter, Pearl, whom he shares with his ex-wife Lacey Buchanan. The two divorced in 2015 after three years of marriage.

Just last month, Jake opened up about how excited he was for baby number two, telling People he felt Pearl prepared him to a "good father," especially to another little girl.

"To be blessed with another beautiful little girl is a big deal because I do think that it takes special men to be a great dad to a little girl," he told the mag. "And I feel like, thanks to Pearl, she’s shown me how to be a good father to little girls, and I’ll be a great father to Paris because of that."

Erica and Jake, who have been together since 2017, announced they were expecting back in November during the ABC News Special I'm Coming Home.
