“The New Year brought our family new love. We’re so excited to introduce you to Daisy’s little sister, Dolly Grace. ❤️” she shared with her followers. In the photo, Schlapman is seen snuggling her new baby girl with her husband, Stephen, while big sister Daisy looks adoringly at her new baby sister.
The band’s publicist tells Sounds Like Nashville that the family welcomed Dolly through a domestic adoption.
Kimberly and her husband Stephen are already parents to 9-year-0ld Daisy Pearl. The couple wed in 2006 after bonding over similar tragedies in their lives as Kimberly had just lost her first husband to a heart attack and Stephen was in mourning over the loss of a close friend. After her husband passed, many of her friends, including Stephen (they’d known each other for several years prior), continuously checked in on her as she grieved.
“We had both been through similar losses,” the singer told The Boot previously. “He hadn’t lost a mate, but he had lost a close friend, so we kind of bonded over that. I had a lot of grief left, and he just took it and listened and accepted it and was so understanding and let me talk about my late husband all the time. We still talk about him a lot, and he’s totally fine with it. He says that that made me who he fell in love with, and he never minds if I bring anything from the past up, which is just really sweet.”
While the past may have brought pain and sadness, the future is bright and happy thanks to the growth of their healthy and happy new baby girl.
