Country music artist Brantley Gilbert and wife Amber Cochran Gilbert welcomed their baby boy into the world over the weekend! Barrett Hardy-Clay Gilbert was born at Piedmont Hospital in Athens, Georgia on Saturday, November 11th at 1:37 p.m., weighing in at 6 lbs., 7 oz. and measuring 20 inches long.
“Honestly, I’m just speechless,” the proud new father shared with PEOPLE. “Watching the delivery, I don’t even know what to say. Amber and I are just so thankful and blessed to have this beautiful little boy.”
Brantley and wife Amber chose the name “Barrett” for their son’s first name since they both have loved that name for a long time and the hyphenated middle name honors family members from both sides of the pair’s family.
After struggling with infertility for the last few years, the couple are just over the moon about their new addition. Congrats to this little family!
Country music fans can catch the new father on his headlining The Ones That Like Me 2018 Tour. The 36-stop tour will kick off in Worcester, Massachusetts on February 1st. Aaron Lewis and Josh Phillips will be joining Gilbert on the road this time around.
“I want[ed] to call [this tour] something that speaks to what this tour is: a chance for me to get together with all the people out there who get this music, who believe in these songs and live their lives just like the people back home do,” Gilbert shared in a press release. “We are all proud Americans, who try to stand up and do the right thing. That isn’t marketing, that’s life — and that’s what my music is made of.”
