Yitzhak Dalal/Hilton Media Group

Nick Lachey is one proud new papa.

Since he and wife Vanessa welcomed son Camden John, it seems as if the doting dad has been busy soaking up plenty of time with his new son.

“Officially in cheesy dad mode,” Lachey, 38, Tweeted Monday afternoon.

“Camden is easily the most amazing thing that has happened in my life. @VanessaLachey and I are truly blessed!”

Born on Sept. 12, baby boy has already made waves in social media circles after new mom Kristin Cavallari commented on the Lacheys’ name choice.

“Apparently Camden is a popular name!” Cavallari, who welcomed son Camden Jack on Aug. 8, Tweeted last week.

Joy Williams Introduces Son Miles Alexander

Joy Williams gave birth during a scorching heat wave in Nashville, but says her delivery was a breeze.

“I did it all naturally and really loved the experience. My husband [Nate Yetton] and I had just gone to the Belcourt to see the new Wes Anderson movie, and the air conditioning was out in the theater,” the female half of The Civil Wars tells PEOPLE. “I was so hot! I started feeling tiny pressure waves during the film, but they abated over time.”

Fast forward hours later and she was almost ready to deliver.

“The [contractions] woke me up at about 1:30 in the morning. And then those really gradual pressure waves grew to ‘Okay, I think it’s time to call the doula!’ It happened pretty quickly and it went really well,” Williams, 29, says. “I had a midwife and a doula. Nate was a champion of champions and so supportive and present.”

Open to several options, Williams says the birthing process proved to be a natural progression.

“I didn’t really feel the need for [an epidural]. It was pretty quick labor, so I didn’t have to endure days in and days out and that never-ending sense of, ‘When am I having this child?’” she explains. “Regardless of how you end up delivering — medication or not — the experience is beautiful and visceral and challenging, but ultimately really empowering.”

Despite the blissful birth, the first-time mama was more than ready to head home from the hospital with the couple’s newest addition.

“Some people told us that that drive home can feel really overwhelming and daunting, [but] I was ready to take him home to our safe environment and hibernate together,” Williams says. “When we walked in the door, it was like, ‘Okay, we’re here … and here’s your nursery and here’s the kitchen and here’s the living room — a getting-to-know-you session.”

After a “drama-free” pregnancy and delivery, Williams quickly settled into motherhood and has already introduced 9-week-old Miles Alexander to the family.

“His first time flying went really well! We’re in Northern California [right now] and the grandparents are meeting the little one,” she shares. “There’s nothing sweeter than being able to introduce him to them.”

And the name Miles suits the burgeoning jet-setter.

“I believe Miles means merciful in German and soldier in Latin, but the actual practical and literal meaning of miles leapt out to us as well,” the two-time Grammy winner explains. “The fact that we will be traveling around the world and he’ll see 10 different countries before he’s even six months old made that name even more special to us.”

As for her favorite way to spend time with her “really smiley” baby boy?

“I love walking to coffee shops. There are lots of great parks in Nashville. There’s a farmer’s market,” she says. “He’s so brand-new! There’s a lot more I want to do and show him around town.”

For now, the new mom is catching up on some shuteye — and feeling inspired by the late-night feedings. “I’m starting to write my own songs for him. Something to do in the middle of the night,” jokes Williams.
