According to People, Presley gave birth to her second child on Tuesday, January 22. Her daughter, Phoenix Joeleena Jean Powell, is Presely’s first child with husband Jordan Powell.
Presely recounted the extra excitement and challenges that occurred the night of the delivery. “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,” she explained. “To try and calm her down, Jordan played the Kentucky/Texas combo of a Loretta Lynn and Willie Nelson duet up against my belly.”
According to Presely, the technique seemed to do the trick, because soon after the music began playing, the baby began to relax. “I guess she knew already where her roots were … nothing like a piece of home to heal a heart,” she added.
“I’m so glad to add this strong female to our family,” Presley stated. “She is tiny but she is fierce.”
Congratulations to Presley and her family!
