There’s nothing like the adorable coos of newborns to really fill your heart this holiday season and some country star’s are really enjoying those sounds this year. Some of the most famous country singers in the industry welcomed brand new additions to their families. Check out these country babies born in 2013.
Danny Gokey – Just a week before Danny and his wife Leyicet celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary, they got a much bigger gift than they could ever hope for. On January 20, 2013, Daniel Emanuel Gokey was born just before 10pm to the couple. “Thankfully, because of what I do, it will also allow me the flexibility to spend a lot of quality time with him,” Gokey told People right after the birth of his son. “I have so many exciting projects ahead this year but a brand new baby is an amazing way to get the new year started. We feel really blessed!”
Love & Theft -Yep, both Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles had kids this year!
Eric and his wife Emily welcomed their first son Camden William Gunderson on March 10 but it wasn’t an easy process for the couple. With an original due date in May, both Eric and Emily were shocked when their son was born two months premature. Unfortunately, he spent his first weeks in the NICU but it’s been smooth sailing ever since.
Eight months later, Stephen Barker Liles and his fiancée Jenna also welcomed their first son to the world. Jett Barker Liles was a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces when he was born. The newly engaged couple plan to wed in early 2014 and no doubt there will be two additional adorable groomsmen.
Clay Walker – The country world got a major surprise when Clay Walker and his wife Jessica announced they were expecting… by hitting the ACM red carpet full on pregnant belly! This is the second time they’ve revealed a pregnancy on the red carpet and just two months later, the happy couple welcomed Elijah Craig to the world. At 7 pounds, 8 ounces, the baby boy is the third child between the couple.
Hillary Scott (Lady Antebellum) – As country royalty goes, Hillary’s pregnancy was top notch! The songstress and her drummer husband Chris Tyrrell had the present of a lifetime on July 22 when Eisele Tyrrell joined the world. While taking some time off to focus on family, it didn’t take long until Hillary and fellow bandmates Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood were back on the road promoting their new deluxe release of Golden. Instead, she believes her new on-the-road life with husband and baby is the new normal for them. During a recent stop at The New 1037, Hillary admitted that her daughter is beyond spoiled. “[She] has been showered with gifts… it’s been so amazing to see just how many people love her,” Scott admits.
Dierks Bentley – Just two months ago, Dierks Bentley and his wife Cassidy added a third addition to their little family as Knox Bentley joined the world. With two big sisters already, Evie, 5, and Jordan, 2, there’s no doubt he will have many nights of Barbies, dress up and playing house. Just after midnight on October 9, Bentley tweeted the news: “well… our boy Knox is here! About to have the best tasting cold beer of my life! So proud of my wife. She rocked it. Crazy stuff,” he cooed.
