Dierks Bentley has got his boy!

The country singer and his wife Cassidy welcomed their third child, son Knox, on the evening of Wednesday, Oct. 9, in Nashville, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Baby boy weighed 6 lbs., 12 oz. and joins big sisters Jordan Catherine, 2½, and Evalyn Day, 5.

“Knox met his big sisters Thursday morning,” Bentley’s rep tells PEOPLE. “Cassidy is doing great!”

Shortly after his son’s arrival, Bentley shared the news on Twitter. “Well … our boy Knox is here! About to have the best tasting cold beer of my life!” he Tweeted. “So proud of my wife. She rocked it. Crazy stuff. #beerme.”

Although Bentley — who announced the pregnancy in April and later revealed it would be a son — admitted to having “no idea what to expect” with the arrival of another baby, his daughters have him well-versed in all things boy.

“They love going camping and fishing. I do a lot of that stuff with the girls anyway so it’ll just be an extension of that with a boy. I love being outdoors so I’m just looking forward to passing that on to the girls and our son,” he told PEOPLE shortly before the birth.

It’s so refreshing to hear him say those things about all his children, not just his boy. I love that he does all those stereotypical male activities with his girls.

He did a radio interview yesterday and mentioned he was just sitting in a diner waiting for the delivery. Quickly covered but I think Minneapolis country market may have gotten an early hint that things were in progress. Congrats to the happy family!

Good for you, sharing your love of the outdoors with your children! I only have 2 daughters and they love to camp, fish, hunt and be in the outdoors, yes they can get all girlie for a night out, but they are most comfortable enjoying nature.
Congrats on your new arrival.

Congrats to them! Also, Knox seems to be becoming a very popular name among celebs (particularly those in the music industry)! ;)

paige- Yes, Angie and Brad’s youngest son is named Knox. He is the original celebrity baby Knox. :)

Jenn, I agree. I knew a lot of families growing up that had 2-3 daughters and only 1 son and the girls were always upset because Dad would only take his son to baseball games, fishing, etc. Those are things most kids enjoy, regardless of gender.
