Rascal Flatts’ Joe Don Rooney Welcomes Baby Girl

Our Country

Well, hello there, you little Rascal! Rascal Flatts guitarist Joe Don Rooney and his wife, Tiffany Fallon, announced Thursday that they are the proud parents of a new baby girl named Raquel Blue.

The couple's little daughter was born the afternoon of September 7, and weighed in at 7 pounds. She joins big brother Jagger Donovan, who came along in 2008. As would only be expected, Rooney and Fallon say they are excited and that their new little bundle is beautiful.

"We feel so grateful to have this sweet little angel round out our family," Rooney added. "Jagger is already an excited big brother; yesterday he gave her kisses and tried to feed her cookies!

"We feel blessed and are ready for the sleepless nights ahead." (Good luck with that, folks...I'm sure Raquel is adorable, but that's one period of parenthood I personally do not miss whatsoever!)

This is quite the fertile year for the Flatts--back in late June, bassist Jay DeMarcus announced that he and wife Allison will be expecting their first child in January 2011.

Rascal Flatts will be releasing their first album for new label Big Machine Records, Nothing Like This, on November 16. The band shared a couple behind-the-scenes photos from their upcoming video, "Why Wait," with us. Yes, that's actor David Arquette you see there...yes, they filmed it in Vegas...and no, we presume the pastel tuxes are not meant to be taken seriously!
