Rodney Atkins and wife Rose Falcon Atkins welcomed their second child together, a baby boy, on Monday, August 26.

People reports that Scout Falcon Atkins was born in Nashville and weighed 8 lbs., 11 oz.

Scout's name was inspired by an old car that remains sentimental to Atkins.

"Scout came from the first vehicle I ever drove," Atkins told People. "It was a 1976 International Scout. After 'Watching You' went No. 1, Mike Curb gave me the keys to the '72 Scout that I drove in the video. I've always thought it would be a cool name for a boy, and I still can't believe Rose went for it."

Scout will join older brothers Ryder Falcon, who's 20 months old, and 17-year-old Elijah, Atkins' son from a previous marriage.

"The journey to building our family has been anything but predictable or easy, but I wouldn't change a thing," Rose Atkins tells People. "I really look forward to seeing the smile on Rod's face when we get Eli, Ry and Scout all in one room ... he is such a proud daddy."

Atkins hit No. 1 on the country charts with the 2006 singles "If You're Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows" and "Watching You."
