Jason Aldean and his wife, Brittany, welcomed their first child together in December of last year. As Mother’s Day approaches, the “You Make It Easy” singer shares how first-time mom Brittany is enjoying motherhood.
While Aldean admits that Brittany had never been around kids before baby Memphis came into their lives, during a recent interview with local media in Nashville he says that his wife is a great mom.
“To see her with him and how good she is with him, it’s pretty cool,” Aldean says, beaming. “Her favorite thing is bath time. She’d give him five baths a day just because she likes to see him in the tub and he likes getting baths anyway. You notice a lot of her pictures are him getting in the tub or getting out of the tub, so that’s their thing. A special part of the day is bath time.”
Aldean says that once the couple took Memphis home from the hospital, Brittany was a little overwhelmed. A natural thing for a new mom, she learned quickly what each cry was for.
“We got home and she didn’t know what to do ever. It’s just like, ‘He’s crying. Is he hungry?’ I’m like, ‘Well, just ’cause they’re crying doesn’t always mean they’re hungry. It could be a few things,'” he recalls. “She picked it up and now she’s doing awesome.”
He adds, “It’s crazy how you start to learn their little personalities, and I can tell you if he’s tired, if he’s sleepy, and it’s fun. It’s all stuff I’ve had to remember because my youngest daughter’s 10, almost 11, so it’s been a minute since I’ve had a little one at the house like that. But believe me, he’s making me remember all of it and it’s cool.”
Having Memphis has brought a new excitement into Aldean’s home. He says he and his wife can’t wait to wake up in the morning to bring him into their room and lay in bed together. As a result, he and Brittany’s marriage is deeper and he says the two are best friends.
“I hate to sound like a Hallmark card, but we truly are best friends. We do everything together. She’s on the road with me [and] I don’t like being out there unless she’s out,” he admits. “It makes it easier for us. She travels with me and we’re inseparable, which is great. I like it that way, so it’s cool when you can be married to somebody that truly, you’re best friends with and that makes it fun, makes it the way it’s supposed to be.”
