Eli Young Band's Mike Eli Welcomes Baby Girl


The Eli Young Band's Mike Eli is now a father. "People" magazine says the singer and his wife, Kacey, are celebrating the birth of their first child, Kline Olivia Diaz, who was born in Dallas on Monday. The healthy baby girl tipped the scales at six-pounds, 15-ounces, and measured 20-and-a-quarter-inches at birth. Mike says he and Kacey are thrilled that Kline is now a part of their family. The singer adds that seeing his little girl for the first time was "absolutely the coolest thing ever."

Mike is getting a little time to spend with his newborn daughter before he returns to the road. The group's next show is set for August 9th in Charlotte, North Carolina, where they'll open for Rascal Flatts. Mike is also the second person on Rascal Flatts' "Changed" tour to become a father over the course of the trek. Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus had to make an emergency trip home to Nashville for the birth of his son on July 20th, then rush back to Detroit to play a concert that night.
