Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott and her husband Chris Tyrrell are celebrating the birth of their first child, a baby girl.

The 27-year-old singer gave birth yesterday (July 22) to a girl called Eisele Kaye.

Scott announced the news via Twitter, writing: "She's here, and we are in HEAVEN!!! Eisele Kaye, our beautiful angel, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!''

The Need You Now hitmaker revealed her pregnancy in December tweeting: ''Chris & I are excited to announce that our Christmas gift has arrived a little early this year!#We are having a BABY! We feel so blessed!!!''

Scott wed Tyrrell, who is a drummer with Lady Antebellum, in January 2012 after dating for just over two years.
