Congratulations are in order for Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany as they welcomed a daughter on Monday (February 4)! Navy Rome was born at 12:45 pm and weighed 7 lbs. 12 oz., according to social media posts made by the proud parents.
Navy’s birth announcement included a photo of the adorable newborn who Jason said looks identical to her big brother, Memphis.
Navy’s birth comes 14 months after the couple welcomed son Memphis in December 2017.
Jason and Brittany chose to undergo in vitro fertilization again to conceive Navy, and they knew they wanted to have their children close in age.
“After having our son, we knew we wanted to have two kids,” Aldean told PEOPLE. “I have my two older daughters already, so after Memphis was born we knew we wanted to have another one pretty quick…to go ahead and knock it out and have one that was a little closer in age to him.”
The 41-year old country star and his wife announced that they had a second baby on the way in July. Their announcement showed Memphis donning a “Big Brother” onesie. “Sup everybody……. guess who is gonna be a BIG brother! #thisdude#aldeanpartyof6,” Jason captioned the photo.
Baby Navy joins the couple’s 1-year old son Memphis and Jason’s daughters from his first marriage, Keely and Kendyl, all of whom helped with the baseball-themed gender reveal in August, just a few weeks after the couple made it public that they were expecting.
During a recent interview, Jason shared the inspiration behind his new daughter’s unique name, saying that he wanted his children to have uncommon, but not strange, names.
“I wanted them to have unique names,” he said. “Not weird, but unique, and with having a name like Jason, it didn’t get much more common, you know what I mean? I wanted them to have something a little cooler than that but not crazy, and I felt like both their names are different. I don’t know anybody else with those names.”
Congratulations, to the Aldean family!
