Rascal Flatts' Joe Don Rooney, Wife Welcome Baby Daughter

Rascal Flatts guitarist Joe Don Rooney and wife Tiffany Fallon have a new baby.

Fallon gave birth to a healthy girl named Raquel Blue early Tuesday morning. A statement from Rascal Flatts' publicist says mother and daughter are doing well.

Rooney says he and his wife "feel blessed and are ready for the sleepless nights ahead."

The couple's first child, big brother Jagger Donovan Rooney, was born in 2008.

The next several months promise to be busy for Rooney and his bandmates. They return to the road later this month and release a new album in November. Bassist Jay DeMarcus and his wife, Allison, are expecting their first child in January.
