Garth Brooks is a Grandfather!

We may be seeing a few more gray hairs on Garth Brooks' head soon as he just became a grandfather when his daughter August Brooks gave birth earlier this week.

A student at the University of Oklahoma, the 19-year-old and her boyfriend, Chance Russell welcomed Karalynn with open arms and fingers on their smartphones.

As the proud parents marveled over their baby girl, August posted lots of pics and tweets, gushing, "She is literally the best thing that has ever happened to me."

In a statement, the "Friends in Low Places" singer announced, "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 now ask that respect to please continue as this young family begins the greatest days of their lives."
