Eric Church and his wife Katherine welcomed their second child, Tennessee Hawkins Church on Sunday (February 15th). Hawk weighed in at 6 lbs. and 12 ounces and was 21 inches long. He joins big brother Boone McCoy, who was born October 2011.
“I’m thrilled that Hawk and his mom are doing well,” Church says in a statement. “We aren’t sleeping very much, but we are enjoying every part of this incredible journey. I’m very blessed and thankful.”
He originally hinted at the news during a stop on The Outsiders World Tour last Fall. Eric was performing his 2006 single “Sinners Like Me” in Louisville, Kentucky on September 25th, when he altered the lyrics to the song to reflect his growing family.
While the original lyrics read, “Well now maybe who knows one day I’ll settle down / Give my dad a grandson of his own,” Eric said in the second line, adding, “Give my dad another grandson!”
