Well, this is certainly one exciting way to ring in Mother's Day.

Country music star Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane Stapleton welcomed their fifth child into the world on Sunday, making the holiday feel a little more personal.

Morgane announced the happy news on Instagram Sunday afternoon with a photo of their new baby holding onto her hand. "The most perfect Mother's day...I wish all you Mama's the happiest of days today!" she wrote.

Neither Morgane nor Chris has shared the baby's name just yet.

E! News' Giuliana Rancic caught up with the parents on the red carpet at the at the 2019 Grammys and they didn't divulge their baby's sex either. 

"We keep thinking we want to be surprised," Morgane explained. "We have an envelope. We'll see if we open it."

Chris and Morgane have gone about their most recent birth and pregnancy announcements in relatively public ways.

In November, The Blast reported that the "Tennessee Whiskey" singer announced his wife's pregnancy in front of a huge audience at one of his concerts at Madison Square Garden.

"Some of you may know that we have four children," he reportedly told the cheering crowd. "Now there's four for us, but we're going to make it five!"

That happened just about seven months after Chris and Morgane welcomed babies three and four—twins!

Chris won some awards at the 2018 ACM Awards but he missed the show because of the twins, which host Reba McEntire shared with the viewers.

McEntire quipped, "We just found out that those little rascals came a little bit early. Hot off the press!"
