Emily Robison Welcomes Baby Girl

Gary Miller, FilmMagic

It’s a chick! Court Yard Hounds and Dixie Chicks co-founder Emily Robison gave birth to Violet Isabel on Tuesday (Sept. 4). The baby girl, who weighed in at 8.5 pounds, is the singer-songwriter’s fourth child but first with boyfriend Martin Strayer. Emily’s three oldest children, Gus (9) and twins Juliana and Henry (7), are with ex-husband Charlie Robison.

“Mom and baby Violet are doing well and Dad couldn’t be happier,” the Dixie Chicks posted on their Facebook page.

Violet is the ninth Dixie Chick baby. Emily’s sister, Martie Maguire has three daughters, while lead singer Natalie Maines has two sons. Both Emily and Martie have been vocal about their fertility problems in the past, making Violet’s birth all the more miraculous. The Dixie Chicks’ song “So Hard,” from the trio’s Grammy-winning Taking the Long Way album, is about the singing sisters’ troubles conceiving and the miscarriages both suffered before welcoming healthy children.

A big congrats to Emily and Martin on their new baby girl!
