Congratulations to Garth Brooks, who recently became a grandfather!

The Tulsa World reports Garth’s daughter August, 19, and Owasso, Okla. resident Chance Michael Russell welcomed daughter Karalynn earlier this week.

The superstar released this statement to the media today:

Our family would first like to thank everyone for their warm wishes and sweet celebration of Baby K’s arrival. Our children’s lives have always been extremely private and they have been endlessly encouraged to be their own people.

We have always wanted them to be individuals and NOT be known as ‘someone’s daughters’. I have been amazed and grateful how the press has always respected this. I now ask that respect to please continue as this young family begins the greatest days of their lives.

Garth and wife Trisha Yearwood currently live in Owasso. He retired from touring and recording in 2000 but has said he’s considering returning to both after his youngest daughter, Allie, graduates from high school next year. In 2012 he wrapped a successful three-year run of shows at Wynn Las Vegas. This year, he went back to the Wynn for Memorial Day and Fourth of July weekend concerts that will be filmed and released on DVD.
