Joe Nichols' brand new baby girl has only been in the world a few days, but the singer is already one proud papa! Nichols announced via his website that he and wife Heather welcomed little Dylan River Nichols on Tuesday (April 17), including the first full family photo, straight from the hospital.

Nichols couldn't help but show off his little lady even more after her debut. The 'Gimme That Girl' hitmaker hit his Twitter page Wednesday to share an up-close shot of his daughter, who he affectionately calls "Little D," with his followers.

"God is real. And He is Good," he tweeted with the photo seen here. "Thanks everybody!"

Nichols kept his fans in the loop leading up to the trip to the hospital for Dylan's birth, spilling on Monday: "Soooo excited right now!!!!!!!!" He followed up the next day with a little update, saying, "I have the most awesome wife ever."

Of course, he took a break from the social media action to stand by his wife's side during labor, but Nichols was right back at it once Dylan arrived safe and sound. "This is us being serious right before delivery. Like my hat?" Nichols blasted out to his 91,000 followers, including a comical self portrait of him and his wife before the delivery, preparing for what was to come.

Dylan River is the first child for the couple, who married in 2007. Nichols has a 13-year-old daughter, Ashelyn, from a previous relationship. Congrats again to the Nichols -- we have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more of Dylan in the coming weeks!
