Nearly one week after releasing his solo debut album The Driver, Charles Kelley has another reason to celebrate. The country artist and his wife Cassie welcomed their son into the world today (February 11th).
Cassie posted the update to her website Womanista, announcing that Ward Charles Kelley was born at 9:20 a.m. CST.
“We can’t stop staring at him and he hasn’t stopped chitchatting with us since he arrived,” they shared. “He’s got momma’s nose and daddy’s eyes and vocal chords and a head full of blonde hair.”
Posting the announcement on Instagram, Kelley shared a picture of a blue baby carriage and the words “Welcome Baby Kelley” with the date listed below. He captioned the post “Baby Kelley is here!”
According to The Boot, the couple had difficulty conceiving, openly sharing their struggle with fans and others. Cassie admitted they had a 1% shot at conceiving naturally, which is all the more reason to celebrate. Welcome to the world, little Ward.
