Angaleena Presley and Jordan Powell Welcome Baby Girl, Phoenix Joeleena Jean
Angaleena Presley and her husband Jordan Powell have welcomed a new baby girl to the world! The country singer welcomed her second child and first daughter, Phoenix Joeleena Jean Powell, into the world on Tuesday (Jan. 22) at 7:49 AM.
Presley tells People that Phoenix was born in Nashville, Tenn., weighing in at 7 lbs, 13 oz. and measuring 17.5 inches in length. She adds that things got a little rocky just before the birth, but fittingly enough, it was country music that helped the new addition to her family come into the world healthy and happy.
"Last night, when we were admitted to the hospital before delivery, Phoenix's heart rate got up really high and she was kicking the crap out of me," Presley relates. "To try and calm here down, Jordan played the Kentucky/Texas combo of a Loretta [Lynn] and Willie [Nelson] duet up against my belly. Within 15 seconds, her heart rate dropped to normal and she relaxed.
"I guess she knew already where her roots were," adds Presley, a Kentucky girl herself, while Powell originally hails from Dallas, Texas. "Nothing like a piece of home to heal a heart."
Presley announced her pregnancy onstage in August of 2018 with help from her Pistol Annies bandmates, Miranda Lambert and Ashley Monroe, during Lambert and Little Big Town's Bandwagon Tour stop in Dallas, Texas. Presley and Powell revealed the sex of the baby in September.
The new bundle of joy is Presley and Powell's first child together. Presley is also the mother of a 12-year-old son, Jed, from a previous relationship. Presley and Powell have been married since 2012; the two wed in a private ceremony in Jackson Hole, Wyo., after getting engaged in 2011. Powell used to be Lambert's tour manager.
