It’s a boy! Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane have added another sweet little boy to their brood. Nearly a month after his arrival, Morgane has shared the first photo of her new son after announcing his arrival on Mother’s Day.
“Sweet boy… It’s hard believe almost a month has already gone by,” she wrote with a black and white photo on Instagram. “Time flies faster than I ever thought imaginable. My heart is so full!”
The little one is the latest to join the Stapleton family, making him the couple’s fifth child. His delivery comes just over a year after the couple welcomed twin boys.
In addition to their three infants, the couple has two older children. After meeting their twin brothers, the two stepped up to help their hard-working parents out.
“They’re super helpful and kind and sweet to them, and I’m so proud of them,” Stapleton shared previously. “They’re doing far better than I would have expected for the loss of attention that they have received in the last few months. So they’re remarkable individuals.”
While fans know of the Stapletons children, details like names and ages have typically been kept private. Keeping their children’s privacy is purposeful for Chris and Morgane as they want to allow their children to be children and remain out of the public eye until, if and when, they choose to speak out.
“I can tell you I am a very private person… I signed up for this, my children did not,” Stapleton shared with the media during the 2018 CMA Fest. “So in that respect I keep my children out of it. You know, they’re children and they deserve the chance to be children. So for me, I’m very protective of that. My wife comes out [on stage] and she’s adult, and chooses to come out and be in the public eye.”
Stapleton has a full schedule ahead in the coming months. In addition to spending time with his new family, he’ll be taking his music out on the road for his All-American Road Show Tour. The trek begins on July 7 and will feature special guests Margo Price, Brent Cobb, Brothers Osborne, The Marcus King Band and Kendell Marvel.
