Congratulations are in order for Eli Young Band‘s Jon Jones and his wife Sarah. The couple welcomed a healthy baby boy on New Year’s Eve.

The baby, Hudson Lennon, arrived at 1:30 p.m. outside of Forth Worth, Texas. “We are ecstatic about this beautiful baby boy that came into our world,” the couple tells PEOPLE. “Words cannot describe our excitement and joy.”

“The birth was extremely smooth. We left our house at 10 a.m. for the birthing center when contractions were four minutes apart and he was born just a few short hours later. We had a great birth team who helped us through everything.”

The family was able to head home that day and ring in the new year together. Jon credits the band for letting him have the night off to spend time with his new family. “The rest of the band went on stage without me for the second time in our careers,” he explains. “They are truly great friends for letting Sarah and I share this wonderful experience together. We were home within four hours of the birth to celebrate New Year’s Eve as a family — mostly holding Hudson in amazement.”

Congratulations to the family! What a way to start the new year!
