Baby Memphis is the newest addition to Jason Aldean’s family and is the country singer’s first son. He is also the first child with Aldean’s second wife, Brittany. However, Memphis is far from being an only child. The almost five-month-old joins his adorable sisters, Kendyl, 10, and Keeley, 15. The “You Make It Easy” singer revealed the girls have been very helpful with their little brother.
“They’ve been really good with him, you know, both of them — but especially Kendyl,” the Georgia native shared with American Country Countdown. “She’s 10, and she’s the one who wants to really help out a lot — feed him, burp him and change him. She sits there on the couch with him and watches TV and hangs out with him. Keeley, she’s 15 now, so she’s a teenager, and she likes to hang out in her room and listen to music and talk on the phone or do whatever she’s doing, and so she’ll come down and hang for a little bit and then she’s back up there. I’ll hear her up there playing some music. She’s started learning to play guitar, so she’ll be up in her room, you know, doing that kind of stuff, but, yeah, they’re tight with him, which is cool.”
Although there are definitely a certain set of challenges that come with having a new child, Memphis has been nothing short of a blessing for Jason and Brittany. As fans well know, the country singer was performing on stage when the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting took place. Since that evening, Aldean admits he has leaned on his child for recovery.
“Within a couple of months, I saw the worst thing you could possibly experience, and then I saw the best thing you could possibly experience, with him being born,” Aldean said in an interview.
“It definitely took me a little time to wrap my head around it and I needed some down time,” Aldean said about the tragic night. “The birth of my son gave me the chance to focus on something else.”
“(Memphis) gave me a reason to look forward to the new year and to get back out there and to do what it is that I love to do,” the 41-year-old added.
