Brantley Gilbert and his wife Amber welcomed their second child, a daughter on Monday (9/9).
Born at 1:18 p.m. at Piedmont Hospital in Athens, Georgia, baby Braylen weighed in at 6 lbs., 7 oz. and measures 19½ inches long. She now joins big brother Barrett Hardy-Clay, 22 months.
Brantley told People, “It’s such a blessing for us to welcome Braylen and both momma and baby girl are doing great.”
He continued, “We had just found out Amber was pregnant with Barrett when I wrote the song originally — we couldn’t even tell family yet, as it was so early along in the pregnancy — yet I couldn’t keep that excitement bottled up. I had to do something as all these emotions were hitting me at once. I wrote ‘Man That Hung the Moon’ on the bus heading home thinking how life was about to change in the most incredible ways. Braylen joining our family now makes it all that much more special.”
Brantley posted, “Happy…. Healthy…. Blessed…. Thanks @people….”
