Justin Moore is a ladies’ man!

The country crooner and his wife Kate welcomed their third daughter on Monday, July 14, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“We’re very excited to welcome Rebecca Klein Moore into the world. Both Mom and Klein are healthy,” the couple say in a statement.

Baby girl — who’s named after her paternal great-grandmother, but will go by her middle name — joins big sisters Kennedy Faye, 2½, and Ella Kole, 4. She weighed in at 6 lbs., 13 oz. and is 19¼ inches long.

“Her two older sisters helped with her first bath and are thrilled to have a little sister! We are blessed,” the proud new parents tell PEOPLE.

Although the couple chose to wait for a delivery surprise, Moore was already thinking pink.

“I would want to know, but my wife wanted to wait and she wins most battles,” he joked to PEOPLE earlier this month. “I’ve got all girls as of right now. I am sure I will have another one.”

Why didn’t they just make her first name Klein??? That doesn’t make sense when people do that. What’s wrong with Klein Rebecca???

Congrats Justin, love your music!

I would’ve named the baby what she’s going to be called, I’m sure they have their reasons.. Rebecca isn’t that common anymore, it’s their baby

Jay and Rachel- It’s a pretty common tradition in the South (which is where they live/are from) , from what I understand (I think at least part of the reasoning for it is so that you won’t have the confusion of having several people with the same name at family gatherings and such!). 🙂

Anyway, congrats to them! BTW, does anyone know if their older daughters go by their middle names, too (if memory serves, they do)?

Congrats to Justin and Kate. Justin, you are my favorite country artist by far.

I agree with a lot of the other comments, I always think it must be strange to explain to your child once they start preschool that their first name is one name but they will be referred to by a different name. It must especially be confusing to them when they notice other children being called by their first name.

Of course, I have never experienced, but I’m really curious if anyone could give insight about this.

Love the name Rebecca Klein!

I suppose they call the kids Kennedy, Kole and Klein. The last one is really weird sounding to me because it’s the German word for ‘short’ and ‘small’/’little’, but little Klein will probably never have to face that comparison. I wonder if you pronounce it Kline or Klayn?

Congrats! So many famous men have three girls. Nothing wrong with that. It keeps Daddy, the King of the House@

Not a big country fan, but I was born in the south, where they live and it’s actually quite common for parents to name their babies something with the intent of using the middle name. From what I was told by my grandmother, who had 18 male family members named William, it was tradition to keep family names going, but to give each new child their own identity… can you imagine family reunions, or family gatherings where everyone went by their first name? You say “Hey, William” and 18 people would say “Yes?” LOL.

its very common in the south to use a family name as the first name and call the child the middle name. It could be that. Not wild about Klein as ANY name, but it isn’t my baby.

Justin Moore is little and not attractive. His wife looks bigger than him.
