Married life continues to hit a high note for Randy Houser.

The “Boots On” singer’s wife, Jessa Lee, gave birth to a baby boy, West Yantz Houser, on Tuesday, March 6, Houser’s rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Born in Nashville, the couple’s first child weighed in at 6 lbs., 10 oz., and measured 19 inches long.

Houser, 35, and his wife — who broke the news of their engagement and wedding with PEOPLE — did not publicly announce the news that they were expecting.

But one thing the country crooner hasn’t kept quiet about? His adoration for his wife.

“I think it’s been my wife that’s been the biggest blessing for me,” he told PEOPLE Country in November.

“It’s someone that’s just sort of changed my life and made me a better person, and made me want to be a better person — and that’s a big blessing to me, because there’s been times where I didn’t care about much.”

Congrulations to them both, but i find it very unprofessional that PEOPLE Magazine would put Randy and his wife’s business out in the open to say that they were keeping her pregnacy under wraps….Just because they did not tell People Magazine about it does not mean they were hiding anything. For you to even imply that is unprofessional…They have just as much right to not air their business as anyone. Just because they are famous does not make it anyone elses business, or give anyone else the right to know…Why make a special effort to point out that they have only been married 6 months…. I’m sure this baby is very much loved and Randy and Jess are very blessed to have a precious child of God in their life…..Randy and Jess both tweeted among FRIENDS and FAN alike about their excitement. So it was NEVER kept under wraps…. Get your story straight…. Tanna Luv
