After months spent searching for the perfect name, Hillary Scott decided to wait for the magical moment of meeting her daughter to make the final decision.
“I had felt like the instant I saw her, I would know exactly what her name was — there would be no question,” the Lady Antebellum songstress, 27, tells PEOPLE exclusively.
But when her baby girl was born in July, the new mom found herself at a temporary loss — until her husband Chris Tyrrell stepped in.
“She had probably been out of the womb 20 to 30 minutes before we decided for sure. After she was born, I was looking at Chris going, ‘What’s her name?!'” she says. “Once he said it, then I knew. I had felt that all along, but I needed him to feel it too.”
Now the couple are completely smitten over their choice of Eisele Kaye, which honors Tyrrell’s mother’s maiden name and Scott’s mother’s middle name, respectively. “Once he saw her and said it, it was done,” the singer explains.
“We love how it sounds kind of musical, it has a sing-song sound to it. It floats in a pretty, musical way,” Scott adds.
