Christian music great Amy Grant rang in the new year with the birth of a granddaughter, Penelope Willow Long.
Baby Penelope is the first child of one of Grant’s daughters, the former Millie Chapman, and her husband Ben.
“What a way to kick off 2022!,” the new grandmother told People. “We are over the moon at her safe delivery. Mom and baby are doing great!”
People adds that Penelope was born on Monday (Jan. 3) at 10:14 a.m. in Nashville. She weighed 7 lbs., 12 oz., and measured 20 inches at birth.
Millie, a daughter of Grant and her ex Gary Chapman, was the inspiration for her mother’s breakthrough crossover hit, 1991’s “Baby Baby.”
