Paul Stanley Welcomes Daughter Sarah Brianna

02/10/2009 at 02:20 PM ET

It’s a girl for KISS rocker Paul Stanley and his attorney wife Erin Sutton! A bit overdue, Sarah Brianna Stanley arrived on Wednesday, January 28th, weighing in at 8 lbs. “The KISS Army has a new princess and her name is Sarah Brianna,” says proud papa Paul. “Erin and I feel truly blessed with the addition of this Star child into our lives.”

Sarah joins brothers Colin Michael, 2 and Evan Shane, 14, Paul’s son from a previous relationship. After announcing the pregnancy in August, Paul, 57, said that he has found his own way when it comes to fatherhood.

“Parenting is something that you can’t do purely on reflex or on what’s familiar from what you saw at home … you have to find what you believe is the right way to do it.”

Paul and Erin, 36, were married in November 2005.

I love the name Brianna! (As long as it’s pronounced Bri-anna though and not Bri-on-a lol). I think Sarah Brianna flows nicely too.

Lacey on

Cute family! Congratulations!

crg on

Sarah Stanley- reminds me of the main character on Avonlea!

Brandi on

Great family photo! I love the name but I prefer Sarah spelled with no H. It really flows well though. Congratulations to the family.

Congrats on the new bundle of joy. A baby girl is the cherry on top of your already blessed family. Congrats all around – I hope her brothers are overprotective of her as her daddy will be.

Congratulations Paul & Erin! What a nice looking family :o) Can visualize Paul and Gene sitting on the front porch in rocking chairs one day holding shot guns chasing away the boys. haha

Wow, not even a normal name like Sarah can get some slack. Yesterday, people complained that Charlie is better as a girl’s name when it’s NOT a girl’s name and yet people slammed Tiger for giving his son a male name. I swear if people didn’t have anything negative to say, they’d be completely unable to post.

In a world where Sarah gets slammed (no H, not crazy about the name) I’m surprised Apple’s mom hasn’t been stoned to death.

I’m happy that celebrities still appreciate the simple, stylish names like Sarah and Charlie. And for those celebrities who must be different, good for them too.

ddmichigan on

Rob Benjamin on

Congratulations from a long time fan in Norway. The boys are beautiful and I`m sure babygirl Sarah Brianna is very cute as well. I do like the name, and I hope the family are home enjoying this first time with this new baby. You`ll never have this moment again, and I felt that the babymonths flew away. My kids are now 14, 10 and 6 years old…

Take care…

Josephine on

Congratulations from a huge KISS fan. I absolutely love the name, I really do, and it’s so nice to see a celebrity use a normal name. I tend to find more established the star is, the more sensible the name, because they don’t need to use shocking names to raise their profile even higher.

Efren Esparza on

Congratulations Paul and Erin! Sarah Brianna is a beautiful name!It’s about time that a celebrity hasn’t named their child some stupid name like Apple or Sosie, Lucie or Sailor–give me a break!

I sure hope in the future we will be entertained by the “Stanley Family Band”. I am sure the kids have inherited Dad’s’ talent for music and if his wife is as musically talented as she is naturally beautiful it will be a treat for all……….Love and Prayers…………..
