Garth Brooks is  a grand father for the first time as Karalynn, who was born to his daughter August on July 23rd.   The 51-year-old country  singer says he’d like to thank everyone “for their warm wishes and sweet celebration of Baby K’s arrival.”

Country music’s best-selling performer has been in semi-retirement as he raises his daughters in Oklahoma. He’ll have another girl around the house now. August was the second to graduate from high school and Brooks says he’s considering a full-time return to recording and performing when his youngest, Allie, graduates from high school next year.

“Our children’s lives have always been extremely private and they have been endlessly encouraged to be their own people,” he said in the statement. “We have always wanted them to be individuals and not be known as `someone’s daughters.
