NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - It's a boy for Joy Williams of The Civil Wars.
Miles Alexander was born Saturday in the Music City. It's the first child for Williams and her husband Nate Yetton, the duo's manager. A statement says mama and son are happy and healthy.
Williams and her musical partner John Paul White officially went on maternity leave after a performance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival earlier this month. The Grammy Award-winning duo plans to begin recording the follow-up to their surprise hit "Barton Hollow" during the hiatus.
Williams says she "never really knew the meaning of love at first sight until today."
