Eli Young Band’s Jon Jones, Wife Sarah Welcome Baby Girl
The Eli Young Band's Jon Jones, wife Sarah and son Hudson Lennon are now a family of four! The bassist and his wife have welcomed a baby girl.
People reports that Lila Pascale Jones was born at 1:30AM on Wednesday (Nov. 30) in Fort Worth, Texas. She weighed 7 pounds and measured 19.5 inches long; a rep for the artist says that baby Lila is "resting in Daddy's arms, while her mother is get[ting] some much-needed rest and recovering."
“We are overwhelmed with happiness and are already so in love with little Lila," Jones says. "Our family feels complete as we start this new chapter of our lives. The Eli Young Band family just got a little bigger and a little better.”
Jones and his wife have been together since college; they got married in January of 2011 in Jamaica. Hudson was born on New Year’s Eve 2012, and they shared the news of the impending arrival of Baby No. 2 in late June. The couple had hoped to welcome Lila through a water birth, just as they had with their son ... but that wasn't how things worked out.
“The birthing process went very quickly this time around, and Mom had the baby while standing up … never quite making it over to the birthing tub,” a rep explains. “The midwife was already there and able to help Sarah through the process, as the rest of the birthing team arrived just as Lila was born.”
Jones and his EYB bandmates — Mike Eli, James Young and Chris Thompson — have four children between them. Young as a son named Wills, while Eli’s daughter, Kline Olivia, born in July of 2012, is the oldest of the four.
The Eli Young Band's current single is “Saltwater Gospel.” They are working on a new album.
