Eli Young Band’s Jon Jones Welcomes Baby Girl
Lila Pascale Jones is the newest member of Eli Young Band's collective growing family. The baby girl was born to bassist Jon Jones and wife Sarah at 1:30AM on Nov. 30 in Fort Worth, Texas.
Weighing 7 lbs. and and measuring 19-and-a-half inches, Lila is the second child, but first girl, for the couple, who announced they were expecting back in June. Jones told Taste of Country at the time that his daughter was due to arrive one day before Thanksgiving 2016.
"We are overwhelmed with happiness and are already so in love with little Lila. Our family feels complete as we start this new chapter of our lives," an excited Jones tells People of his new arrival. "The Eli Young Band family just got a little bigger and a little better."
Jones and his wife became parents on New Year's Eve 2012 with the birth of a son, Hudson Lennon Jones. Hudson was a water birth, and the couple hoped to experience the same with their new daughter — but she had other plans.
"The birthing process went very quickly this time around, and Mom had the baby while standing up … never quite making it over to the birthing tub," a rep explains to the magazine. "The midwife was already there and able to help Sarah through the process, as the rest of the birthing team arrived just as Lila was born."
The family is home happy and healthy, and the rep says Lila is "resting in Daddy’s arms, while her mother is get some much-needed rest and recovering."
