Photos shared with the birth announcement show the couple with their hands on Joyce’s belly just before heading to the hospital.
The couple tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony in Santa Monica, Calif., in March. The ceremony had fewer than 10 attendees and guests were seated at least six feet apart from each other.
A statement from Yoakam’s publicist said the couple waited to announce the wedding until May out of respect to people affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
