Congratulations are in order for Sam Hunt and his wife Hannah Lee Fowler! The couple recently welcomed their first child together….a daughter named Lucy Lu.
The 37-year-old “Take Your Time” singer announced his daughter’s birth while on stage at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium for the Stars for Second Harvest charity concert Tuesday night (June 7).
“I recently had a baby girl named Lucy Lu,” Hunt said in a video captured by Music Mayhem Magazine that was shared to social media.
“I think being out here, and in the music business and being out on the road, has sort of hardened my heart. My heart’s definitely a lot harder in a lotta ways since I left that small town. It’s amazing how that little girl melted that all away overnight a couple of weeks ago,” Hunt said. “I’ve been filled with a lot of gratitude these past couple of weeks. I just want to say up here on the Ryman stage how grateful I am to have been a part of country music for the last 10 years.”
News of Fowler’s pregnancy was first revealed when she filed for divorce from Hunt in February. In divorce documents, Fowler accused her husband of five years of “inappropriate marital conduct” and “adultery.” The filing revealed that Fowler was expecting the couple’s first child due in May.
Shortly after news of their split went public, Sam Hunt served as a guest co-host for Country Countdown USA where he confirmed the news that he was going to be a dad.
“I haven’t talked about this, but I have a little girl on the way,” Hunt said. “I blocked out two months at the end of May and early June. Really this year revolves around that big news in my life.”
Sam also shared that he and Hannah were waiting until their daughter’s birth to name her.
“We’re thinking about it,” he said. “I want her to be in the world before we name her. I want to be able to look at her and decide what name suits her best.”
Fowler called off her divorce from Hunt last month and a judge granted her request for the case to be dismissed.
