After welcoming their little girl just over two months ago, Rascal Flatts member Joe Don Rooney and his wife Tiffany are ready to show her off to the world. The Rooney family appears in the December issue of People magazine’s country edition with plenty of (adorable!) pictures to introduce their new little girl.
The couple also dished on the birth of Raquel, which was much easier this time around for Tiffany than it was when she gave birth to the couple’s son, Jagger, who is now 2. “I had a tough delivery with Jag,” Tiffany recalled. “So that anxiety sets in — I was crazy nervous again… It was tremendously easier this time. I was anxious right outside the hospital, like, ‘Oh no, this is going to be hard again.’ But it was actually a joy to be there, I didn’t want to leave!”
When it came to picking out a name for their baby, Joe Don says it was a little bit difficult. ”We had so many names picked out,” Rooney, 35, explained. “It’s harder to choose a girl’s name because there are so many that are beautiful — it’s hard to narrow it down… Jag calls her Sissy. But Raquel feels right; when Tiffany said it, it felt right in my gut and my heart. Just like when she said Jagger, that felt exactly right.”
