Morgan Wallen and his ex-girlfriend, Katie Smith, welcomed a baby boy on Friday (July 10th) in Nashville. Indigo "Indie" Wilder weighed in at 6 pounds, 13 ounces.
Morgan shared the big news on social media last night (Monday, July 13th) with a picture of him holding his infant son and writing in part, "Little Wilder, I’m a changed man. Since you came into the world Friday, I see mine differently now. It’s not just me anymore, and I’m glad it’s not. This year has been the hardest of my life in so many ways, but that’s not what i will remember it by. You are. You are a gift and this tough year just made sense. I’ll be the Dad you deserve as well as the co-parent your mother deserves . . ."
The baby's mother also shared a few pictures and video on social media writing, "when you pray for God to send someone who reciprocates your love for them- and he sends you the most perfect version of that . . ."
Morgan kept news of the pregnancy under wraps. In his social media post he wrote, "I knew this day was coming when I got to share this news with y’all. And I’m glad that day is here . . ."
The new dad is climbing the charts with his latest single, "More Than My Hometown."
