Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus had to cancel his session in a Nashville
recording studio with iCarly's Jennette McCurdy on Friday but he had a very good excuse.
His first child, Madeline Leigh DeMarcus, came into the world at 4:49 p.m., three weeks before her due date.
Mom Allison DeMarcus, a former Miss Tennessee and CMT personality, is doing great, Jay tells PEOPLE in an interview, and the 6 lb., 9 oz. baby with a full head of dark curls "is tiny, but perfect in every way! I'm just kissing her little face off."
