NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - It’s a boy for Joy Williams of The Civil Wars.

Miles Alexander was born Saturday in Nashville, Tenn. 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.”
