It is only August, but 2017 has already proven to be an incredibly exciting time for the country music world. This year, more than a dozen of the genre’s biggest stars have already welcomed a newborn baby to their respective families. In fact, one special couple added two daughters! When trying to make a list of new babies, the only hard part is knowing where to start! Let’s take a look at these lucky families below…
Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren
Since the beginning of 2017, Thomas Rhett has been named ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’ at the ACM Awards, and now he recently became a dad! The year has been nothing short of spectacular for Thomas and his gorgeous wife, Lauren. Many country music fans are familiar with their adorable love story, but did you know the pair added two new daughters to their family within just a few months? After completing a long adoption process, the two lovebirds welcomed home their first child, Willa Gray, back in May. However, Lauren was pregnant throughout the adoption, and she gave birth to Ada James on August 12th. What a cute family!
Justin Moore and wife Kate
On June 11th, Arkansas native Justin Moore welcomed his first son, Thomas South, into the world alongside his wife, Kate. However, Thomas will go by his middle name. He will be called South in honor of his roots. Since the country singer already had three daughters, he is excited to finally have another male in the house to even out the ratio.

Gods got jokes……After thinking we are having a boy for the last few months, turns out the blood test was wrong and we're actually having a little girl. Woe… so many emotions but really really excited about this next chapter even if God does like throwing us a curve ball every now and then. Just keeping us on our toes. #daddysgirl
Hillary Scott and husband Chris Tyrell
God has answered our family's countless prayers! Our family is growing…Chris, Eisele, and I wanted to share our DOUBLE portion of joy with you all! We appreciate all the love and prayers in the coming weeks as we wait (somewhat patiently if you're Chris and I, and impatiently if you're Eisele 😂) for these precious BABIES to arrive. Yep, babies! We are having TWINS! It's truly a miracle. Because we've been so open about our last pregnancy loss and journey, I want to be fully transparent with you that this happened naturally. Chris nor I have any family history of twins that we can find and are just resting in the profound gift this truly is. My heart still grieves for our loss and all who are struggling with pregnancy and infant loss and infertility. God hears every prayer and I will continue to share our story to point to the Source of all life, peace and comfort in the best and most difficult of times. Don't lose hope! Thank you @hodgesusry for capturing this priceless moment and make sure you swipe to see all the sweet moments @montgomeryleephoto captured on the day we told Eisele. Love and blessings to all!
