Lady Antebellum’s leading lady has given birth to a little lady.

Hillary Scott’s representative said the country singer gave birth to Eisele Kaye Tyrrell on Monday in Nashville, Tenn. Scott is married to Nashville-based drummer Chris Tyrrell. Eisele is the couple’s first child.

People magazine first reported the birth. The report said the baby girl weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces.

Scott, 27, is one-third of the Grammy-winning country act Lady Antebellum. The group also includes Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood. They released their fourth album, “Golden,” in May.

Billy Ray Cyrus, wife will not divorce

Country musician Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife are calling off their divorce proceedings for a second time.

Tish Finley Cyrus filed for a divorce last month in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences. But in a statement provided by their publicist on Monday, the couple said they are working on their relationship in therapy.

“We both woke up and realized we love each other and decided we want to stay together,” they said.

It was the couple’s second divorce attempt after Billy Ray Cyrus filed for divorce in 2010 but he later withdrew the petition.

The two got married in December 1993 and have three children together, including actress-musician Miley Cyrus.
