Congratulations to Jimmie Allen and his wife, Alexis, who welcomed their baby girl, Zara James Allen, on Saturday (October 16). The country music recording artist took to Instagram to announce her daughter’s arrival last weekend.
âThe new addition to our family is here and we couldn’t be happier to finally meet her,â Jimmie told his fans on social media. “Alexis, you are a champion,” the recording artist wrote to his wife. “I love you and [am] so grateful for you.
Jimmie and Alexis shared the news of their wait earlier this year. The announcement came months after the celebrity couple welcomed their eldest daughter, Naomi.
âNaomi is finally sleeping in a crib now, she’s not in a crib anymore, so we have this crib ready for the baby,â Jimmie said of his growing family in an exclusive interview with Entertainment tonight (AND) earlier this year. âI’m just starting to get a pro on this whole parenting thing,â the country music singer added.
Jimmie shared his desire to name his unborn daughter Arya Stark Allen with HEY. The famous father admitted that the inspiration behind the choice of the unique name was the Game Of Thrones.
“I’m just going to let that be his nickname,” Jimmie conceded during the conversation. âI’m going to keep tweeting and posting about it, that way people will accept it like it’s her nickname, even though on paper she’s something else,â the celebrity’s dad added. âI have a nickname,â Allen revealed. “Jimmie is a nickname.”
Alexis and Jimmie Allen celebrated their eldest daughter’s birthday in March. Jimmie also has a son named Aadyn from a previous relationship which he sees as the driving force behind his success as a recording artist.
“I was broke when I had my son,” Jimmie Allen admitted in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE Last year. âI worked three times – I was a waiter, janitor in an elementary school and I collected garbage for waste management,â explained the famous father. “What’s crazy is that after having my son, next year I got a publishing contract. The next year I got a recording contract,” explained Allen.
Aadyn celebrated her seventh birthday earlier this year.
