The singer revealed that he is now the father of a sweet baby girl with an adorable snap posted to Facebook. “The newest lady in my life. So thankful. So. Thankful,” he wrote.
James first posted about the pregnancy back in October when he tweeted a photo of the ultrasound to singer Ben Rector and band Judah the Lion after seeing them live. “@benrector @TheRyman @judahandthelion Oh and by the way, it was this ones first concert. You got 5 out of 5 stars,” read the tweet.
No word on when the baby was born or her name, but we’re thrilled for Casey’s growing family!
Fans first met Casey James on season nine of American Idol. The Texas native placed third on the show overall, and went on to sign with Sony Music’s Nashville’s Columbia imprint. His debut single, “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night,” dropped in 2011 and landed inside the Top 30 at Country radio. He later departed the record label after 2015’s “Fall Apart” failed to chart inside the Top 40.
