The country crooner became engaged to Taylor in August, and is already a father to one child from a prior relationship, his three-year-old son Jaxon.

Taylor also shared a picture of the new baby to her own Instagram account, writing, "Dakota Lynn Boyd born 12/31 at 5:36pm 5 lbs 3oz. She's our angel and perfect end of 2015 and start to 2016!!!"

Craig first rose to fame after winning season 7 of The Voice in 2014 as a member of Blake Shelton's team. His first single released last year, "My Baby’s Got A Smile On Her Face", debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Congrats to Craig and Taylor on the new addition!
