The singer and wife Cassidy Black welcomed the arrival of the infant, named Evalyn Day Bentley, Saturday, October 4 and have decided to call her "Evie".
Having been married since the year of 2005, it wasn't until Saturday, October 4 that Dierks Bentley and his wife Cassidy Black welcomed the arrival of their first child together, a baby girl, whom they named Evalyn Day Bentley. She was born just before midnight at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, People reports.
The newborn baby weighed 7 lbs., 10 oz. at time of birth. According to Dierks, the baby's name was derived from Cassidy's maternal grandmother Evalyn, while the middle name was chosen because he and Cassidy "just liked the word 'Day' - it's a hopeful word." And so, they will simply call her "Evie".
Dierks announced his wife's pregnancy in May this year in a blog titled "Cass's eggo is preggo!". Speaking about Evie, the country music singer was quoted as telling his publicist that she "is the most beautiful little girl you have ever seen" adding "Cass did great, and I'm so happy!"
Dierks and Cassidy were both in the eighth grade at middle school in Phoenix, his hometown. They tied the knot in December 2005. The new parents currently live in Nashville, Tennessee with their dogs Jake and George.
As for his singing career, Dierks is having a scheduled appearance at his Miles and Music For Kids III Celebrity Motorcycle Ride & Jam Session Sunday, October 5 which is due to begin at 2 P.M. at Harley-Davidson of Cool Springs, with a concert to follow at 4 P.M. at Riverfront Park.
