Introducing Ava Rose Kathleen McBride

10/16/2005 at 05:38 PM ET

MartinaAva Rose Kathleen McBride was born on June 20th of this year to country singer Martina McBride, 39, and husband John, 47. She joined big sisters Delaney, 10, and Emma, 7.

Some highlights from the article:

-Her third pregnancy was her easiest ever, because she took a year off from touring to just be pregnant and be a homeroom mom for her older daughters.
-Martina and husband John have never been apart from their kids for more than two days at a time.
-She quickly regained her size two figure because of good genes-she says, "My brother’s so skinny I can barely fit into his jeans!"
-10 year old Delaney likes to help with diapers, but not when it’s number 2!

I used to run into Martina out shopping when I lived in Brentwood, Tennessee (just outside of Nashville) and she would have Delaney and Emma with her. They were three beauties, for sure. And now, four, with the addition of little Ava. She was always a very nice lady, too, and the girls were just adorable.
