“Our baby girl is here,” Atkins said on Instagram Sunday. “Sweet Ada James Akins came into the world at 10:28 last night after almost 36 hours of labor (only Jesus got me through that-& she is sooo worth it). She weighs 7 pounds 3 ounces and is so stinking cute I just can't take it! We are all doing well now, just resting. Thank y'all for your prayers-she is a miracle and God is so good. Thomas Rhett and I are so I love with her.”

Ada joins sister Willa Gray, who Atkins said is “so excited to finally have a baby sister.”

Willa, 21 months, was adopted by Rhett and Atkins from Uganda in May.
