Season 7 winner of ‘The Voice’, Craig Wayne Boyd and his fiancée, Taylor Borland, know how to ring in a new year! On the last day of 2015, the couple welcomed a daughter, Dakota Lynn Boyd. Not only was it New Year’s Eve, but the little girl will share a birthday with her talented dad.
Boyd announced his daughter’s birth on social media with a photo of his hand holding the hand of his newborn baby. “The #bestof2015 for me and @taybrookebo didn’t show till my #birthday, today!! #happeningnow #happybirthday #happynewyear #daddiesgirl #DakotaLynn,” the caption read.
Boyd’s fiancée also shared a photo and details of her birth. “Dakota Lynn Boyd born 12/31 at 5:36 pm 5 lbs 3 oz. She’s our angel and perfect end of 2015 and star to 2016!!! @cwbyall #newborn #dakota #inlove #lips #nose #birthdaygirl”
Boyd and Borland first met at a Christmas party in Los Angeles in 2014.
“It was like love at first sight,” Boyd told PEOPLE. “I remember first seeing her at the front door and just being taken back by how beautiful she was. I knew then that I had to get to know her.”
Borland, who works as a modeling agent at the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency, admitted that she had no idea who Boyd was when she first met him. “He came up with this entourage of guys, and we shook hands,” she recalled. “And he had these incredible blue eyes, and I just got suckered in.”
Boyd who has a son, Jaxon, from a previous relationship, proposed to Borland on his tour bus following a concert in Branson, Missouri, this past June.
Congratulations to Craig Wayne, Taylor, and Jaxon on their new addition!
