Josh Turner and wife Jennifer are celebrating an early Christmas present – the birth of their third child, son Crawford Marion, on Monday evening in Nashville, the country star tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Weighing in at 6 lbs., 15 oz. and measuring 19 inches long, Marion – as the couple will be calling him – arrived at 8:52 p.m.

Although Jennifer wasn't due until the holiday, the couple was prepared for an early arrival as their older sons Colby Lynch, 18 months, and Hampton Otis, 4, also came prior to their due dates.



"Jennifer and I are overjoyed at Marion's arrival," the "I Wouldn't Be a Man" singer, 33, tells PEOPLE. "He's a strong, handsome little boy with a resilient spirit. Thanks to all of our family, friends and fans for their thoughts and prayers."

The family expansion caps a big year for multi-platinum artist Turner, who celebrated two No. 1 singles with "All Over Me" and "Why Don't We Just Dance", which also won Single of the Year at the recent American Country Awards in Las Vegas.
