singer Amy Lee
welcomed her first child, a son named Jack Lion
, last Thursday, July 24."I have never known the depths of my heart till now. The world just exploded into Technicolor,"
Lee wrote on Instagram
notes, the 32-year-old singer has been married to Josh Hartzler
, a therapist, since May 2007. The couple live in New York City.
Lee told the Pulse of Radio
a while back that she missed her family when she was on the road and was starting to think about starting her own. "Definitely,"
she said. "That's something I long for more and more the older I get, for sure. Not just about kids of my own, but just spending time with my living family.
[laughs] Something I really end up missing a lot on the road is that, you know, just down home family time. You miss a lot of that stuff when you're on the road and it's starting to hit me, like, 'Ooh, I can't get that back.'"
With Evanescence currently inactive, Lee recently completed her first film score, with collaborator Dave Eggar
, for the movie "War Story
." The film premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival
in Park City, Utah.
The most recent Evanescence album, a self-titled effort
, came out in 2011.
