Holly Williams has added a new branch to her famous family tree.

The country singer and her husband, musician Chris Coleman, welcomed their first child, daughter Stella June Coleman, in Nashville at 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 30, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“I am beyond thrilled to meet her. I’m so incredibly blessed,” Williams tells PEOPLE of her little one, who weighed 7 lbs., 12 oz., and measured 21 inches long.

The new mom, 33, who is the granddaughter of Hank Williams and daughter of Hank Jr., embraced family tradition in naming her baby girl: Stella was the name of a great, great aunt, while June was Williams’s maternal grandmother.

When Holly Williams found out she was pregnant with her first child, she turned to some of her working mom friends — like Gwyneth Paltrow — for advice and inspiration.

“I think the biggest thing everyone has said to me is to not let stress affect your body and that I need to take time to prepare the healthiest food I can while I’m traveling,” the musician, who has been touring in support of her album The Highway most of this year, tells PEOPLE. “Gwyneth’s cookbook It’s All Good has been a big help.”

Maintaining a healthy pregnancy diet while on the road isn’t easy.

“The other night was horrible. I was on the road in the middle of nowhere and was starving to death, so I went to a gas station and had M&Ms, Fritos and a Coke,” Williams, 33, says. “The first thing I did when I got home is make Gwyneth’s chicken and kale soup. It’s an amazing detox for your body.”

Holly Williams Expecting First Child

Holly Williams Pregnant Expecting First Child Chris Coleman

It’s another five months before singer Holly Williams‘s first child is due to arrive, but the new addition is already a peacemaker.

“My husband [Chris Coleman] and I are traveling all the time and we have very stressful schedules, but if we start getting in a little tiff, we’re both like, ‘Wait, can the baby hear us right now? We can’t do this!’ ” the singer, 33, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The couple, who married in 2009, have been on the road separately much of the past year — Williams released her third album The Highway last year and Coleman is a multi-instrumentalist who tours with Kings of Leon — so the pregnancy took them by surprise.

“I’ve had so many friends who’ve struggled with infertility issues, so I thought ‘Well, this could take five years.’ And it didn’t at all!” says the granddaughter of Hank Williams and daughter of Hank Jr. “We felt really blessed. It was like the Lord gave us this little miracle.”
