Country music star Jimmie Allen told his fans on Dancing With the Stars that he and his wife were expecting a baby that was due at any time.
There were concerns that his wife might go into labor when he was performing on the show, but he doesn’t have to worry about that now.
Jimmie Allen posted photos on Instagram that showed that his new baby has arrived.

Jimmie Allen’s wife went into labor and delivered the couple’s new baby girl, Zara James Allen.
This is Jimmie Allen and his wife Alexis’s second child. They also have a 15-month old daughter named Naomi Bettie. Jimmie also has a seven-year-old son from a previous relationship named Aadyn.
“The new addition to our family is here and we couldn’t be happier to finally meet her,” Jimmie wrote.
“Alexis you’re a champion, I love you and so thankful for you.”
Jimmie Allen had previously credited Alexis for the songs he writes.
“Her smile melts me, her pure heart challenges me to love better, the way she motivates and supports me is unlike anything I’ve ever seen, the way she loves me and my son is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced,” Allen said.
“It feels incredible to find the type of love I’ve been writing songs about all these years!”
