The Dixie Chicks may be playing second fiddle to Martie Maguire for the next few months.

The singer and resident master string musician welcomed daughter Harper Rosie Maguire in Austin Friday morning, according to an announcement on the country-fried trio's official website. Harper's the third child for Maguire and husband Gareth.

"The Dixie Chicks are thrilled to announce the newest addition to the family," the post says. "Martie is doing very well and Gareth and the family are over the moon."

Harper tipped the scales at "a perfect" 7 pounds, 10 ounces, and measured in at 20.5 inches long.

The tyke joins twin sisters Eva Ruth and Kathleen Emilie, who were born in April 2004.

The 38-year-old mom, who has made no secret of her difficulty in conceiving, first confirmed that she was expecting a third child back in January of this year.
