Still speechless….

A post shared by Brantley Gilbert (@brantleygilbert) on

Brantley Gilbert and his wife Amber are officially parents! The couple welcomed their new baby boy to the world on Saturday (Nov. 11).

Barrett Hardy-Clay Gilbert was born at 1:37PM on Saturday, at Piedmont Hospital in Athens, Ga., People reports. He was born weighing 6 lbs., 7 oz., and measuring 20 inches long.

“Honestly, I’m just speechless. Watching the delivery, I don’t even know what to say,” Gilbert tells the magazine. “Amber and I are just so thankful and blessed to have this beautiful little boy.”

Baby Barrett was due on Nov. 17, so he arrived a little bit sooner than expected. According to People, it was a relatively quick delivery, too.

“It was really fast: Amber woke up, had a little pain. And the nurse said, ‘You’re ready.’ It was 30 minutes, and we had Barrett,” Gilbert explains. “And I have no words beyond, it’s even more than I could’ve ever imagined.”

When it comes to Barrett’s name, Gilbert explains that he and his wife have had it picked out “for a very, very long time;” they both knew they wanted a “B” name, and they both loved that name in particular. Barrett’s hyphenated middle name, meanwhile, honors both sides of his family: Gilbert’s PaPaw’s middle name was Clay, while Hardy is a family name from Amber’s father’s side.

Gilbert and Amber announced their pregnancy in mid-May, opening up at that time about their struggle to conceive. They revealed Barrett’s sex at a party in June.
