OTRC: Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus and wife Allison DeMarcus welcome first child

Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts fame got a nice surprise this weekend. His wife, former Miss Tennessee and CMT personality, Allison DeMarcus, gave birth to a baby girl named Madeline Leigh DeMarcus on Friday, reports People.

Jay DeMarcus tells the magazine the baby "is tiny, but perfect in every way! I'm just kissing her little face off." He adds, "I didn't get much sleep last night. I kept waking up and thinking 'Oh my gosh, I'm a father!"

The child was born three weeks before the official due date and weighed 6 pounds, 9 ounces at birth. DeMarcus and his wife met when she appeared in a video for Rascal Flatts and wed in 2004.
