Extra happy holidays are here for Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, who became a first-time mom to a bouncing baby boy on Thursday!

The early Christmas present is named Magnus Hamilton Miller--dad is Nettles' husband of one year Justin Miller--and it seems both mom and baby are doing fine. "We are so thankful for all the prayers and support and are excited to take some time together as a new family," the couple noted in a statement.

Nettles and Miller met in 2006 on the set of Sugarland's "Want To" video, and dated for a few years before getting engaged. They were married in 2011 on Thanksgiving weekend in a small, sunset ceremony set in the foothills of Tennessee's Smoky Mountains.

Nettles revealed she was expecting in June of 2012, noting that she'd kept the pregnancy under wraps for the first few months while working as a mentor on reality show Duets. She also managed to tour and make numerous appearances throughout her pregnancy. Her Sugarland partner Kristian Bush has two kids of his own--a son and a daughter--with wife Jill.

Congratulations, Jennifer and Justin! Be sure to leave your well-wishes here, too!
