Justin Moore recently welcomed a first son, Thomas South. Not everyone in the house was happy when they realized a new little one was on the way, however.
Justin and wife Kate already had three daughters when they found out early this year that they were expecting again. But when their oldest daughter Ella got the news, she dropped a no-nonsense ultimatum on Mom and Dad. If it was another girl, she was moving out. “We’re excited for sure that she’s not leaving us,” Justin quips in an interview released by his record label. “She’s seven now, so she is way too big to do anything with the three and five-year-old sisters. Like, she’s kind of getting to the point where ‘I’m way bigger than that, like, I can read now.’ And so it’s kind of funny.”
Funny stuff aside, Ella truly is a loving big sister. “What’s cool about it is she really actually is a lot of help,” Justin continues. “I mean she can make a bottle, she’ll feed South the bottle, she can change diapers. We’re not running a slave camp here, but she enjoys doing it, enjoys helping.”
Dad is at home these days and offering lots of help himself. The “You Look Like I Need A Drink” singer has the rest of December off, returning to the road with his Hell On A Highway Tour January 18th. See a complete list of dates here.
