Rutledge had announced in April that she was pregnant and the child was expected in August.
She told the radio show that the child was named Julianna (a guess at spelling) and weighed 5 pounds 15 ounces. She declined to discuss labor details.

Julianna Carol is named for her paternal grandmother’s middle name, Ann, and maternal grandmother’s and mother’s middle name, Carol.

Boyce and I welcomed our daughter, Julianna Carol Johnson, on Friday July 27th. She is a gift from God & we are thankful to family, friends & all Arkansans for your love, support & prayers during this special time. #arpx pic.twitter.com/iIOA1g8kYz
