In an Instagram post captioned with a heart emoji, the 28-year-old posted the first photo of the newborn — only showing the feet — and revealed the name of Florence May King and the birthdate of January 15.

Wondering how Candice and Joe picked a name any aspiring folk singer would kill to have? We have the answer. The Fray’s co-founder and his lady love got engaged in Florence, Italy back in May 2013 before marrying in NOLA in October 2014. Get it? Florence May.

Joe — who has two daughters, Ava and Elise, from his first marriage — has also shared the photo of Florence May on his social media accounts with the caption: “I’m in love again.”

Now we’re just going to sit back, (hopefully) watch more baby photos emerge, and count the days until Candice returns to filming TVD when her maternity leave ends.

The Vampire Diaries Season 7 midseason premiere airs Friday, January 29, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
