The journey to having a child together was full of obstacles for country music hit-maker Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany. While talking to the Babes & Babies podcast, Brittany revealed that the couple tried to get pregnant for a year and a half before discovering what was preventing them from being able to conceive.
Brittany was diagnosed with endometriosis and the pair decided to pursue In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to make their dreams of a baby come true. Unfortunately, IVF also proved to be extremely challenging and the Aldeans nearly gave up on the process.
“Memphis was our last [egg],” Brittany candidly shared. “So it was like, if this doesn’t work — I was considering a surrogate. We were thinking about all the options.”
Thankfully, Brittany had a healthy pregnancy with Memphis and gave birth to him vaginally on December 1st.
Despite all of their fertility struggles, the pair hope to have one more child in the future. Brittany is pushing to add to the family sooner than later, but Jason is comfortable with waiting a bit.
“This morning, Memphis was screaming and Jason turned over in bed and was like ‘And you wanna do this again soon?’” Brittany confessed laughing.

Watch Jason set up the hospital room television for the SEC Championship game while Brittany is experiencing painful contractions. This is about as real as it gets…
It’s great that Brittany is so willing to share their fertility ups and downs when so many are facing similar hardships. Baby Memphis is now four months old and has his doting parents wrapped around his little fingers.
“HAPPY 4 MONTHS to the most handsome baby in the world💙 Your dimples, chunkiness and little temper crack me up every single day.. and you could not be more perfect in my eyes. I love you with every ounce of me. My boy.” Brittany posted to Instagram over Easter weekend.
Here’s a sweet snapshot of the beautiful trio.
