Jennifer Nettles is a new mom.

The Sugarland singer gave birth to a son named Magnus Hamilton Miller this past Thursday. It's the first child for the singer and husband Justin Miller.

In a statement, Nettles says she's thankful for the prayers and support the family has received - and is "excited to take some time together as a new family."

The couple marked their one-year wedding anniversary next month.

Sugarland is off the road these days - but you can catch Nettles hosting the pre-recorded CMA Country Christmas on December 20.
