After kicking off the weekend with a Grammy nomination, Lee Brice has something new to sing about: his baby boy!

The country crooner, 33, and his wife Sara have welcomed their second son, he announced via Twitter Sunday.

Ryker Mobley Brice arrived Wednesday, Dec. 4, weighing in at 8 lbs., 4 oz. and 20½ inches long, Brice tells Country Weekly.

“Mobley was my great-granddaddy’s middle name, my daddy’s and mine,” he explains.

“A week ago I didn’t think I could be any happier. I was wrong. Our brand new baby boy was born healthy. My heart is full,” Brice, who is nominated for best country solo performance for “I Drive Your Truck,” writes.

“Sara is the strongest and most amazing woman I know. She did so good and he is perfect.”

The couple kept the pregnancy under wraps until September, when Brice broke the news with two snapshots of his growing family, including one cheeky picture of 4-year-old son Takoda using binoculars to search for his baby brother.

“The only thing more beautiful than my Sara, is my Sara carrying my second little baby boy! I’m gonna be a daddy again!!!” he captioned the picture.

When me and my husband heard that Lee Brice named his son Ryker we were stunned, two years ago we named our son Riker and figured we would never hear someone name their child this. It just goes to show you that after you name your child a different name it becomes popular !!!
