Vanessa Carlton and her husband, John J. McCauley, welcomed home their first child today (Jan. 13), and the couple couldn’t be happier!

John — the lead singer of alt-rock band Deer Tick — took to Instagram to make the announcement and post a photo of him and their newborn, both clad in hospital gear. He captioned the photo (which you can check out here) saying, “Sid the Kid, whoa!!!” Aww! The record label Deer Tick is on, Partisan Records, also tweeted about the good news, congratulating John and Vanessa by saying, “There’s a new mama and papa on the block! Huge congrats to John McCauley and Vanessa Carlton on their baby girl!!! Welcome to the family!”

Vanessa announced her pregnancy earlier last year via a Facebook post, where she also had to let fans know that she would be pushing back the release of her upcoming album. Thankfully, it looks like things should finally be back on track for new music — at least we hope so!

We’d like to extend a huge congratulations to Vanessa and John, and the new addition to their family!
