Russell Dickerson and his wife Kailey recently went on one last date before their baby arrives. Russell shared a few cute selfies from the date, which looks to have taken place in downtown Franklin, TN, calling it a ‘’bout to be parents’ date.
“‘Bout to be parents’ date day trying to take the perfect selfie. Kailey Dickerson looks perf in all of them and I’m just over here looking like a (waste basket, trash can, recycling bin),” he writes, along with a trash can emoji.
Kailey also shared a photo from the day on Instagram, writing, “Mom & Dad practicing date nights before baby comes.”
Russell and Kailey announced the big news about their impending arrival back on April 15th via People. They shared that they had been trying to conceive for nine months before being successful. Kailey detailed some of those struggles in an Instagram post from April 30th.
“I’ve waited a long time to be a mama,” she wrote. “Touring doesn’t lend itself to a ‘traditional home life’ and I knew that when I signed up for it. We wanted to do this how we always have: together. The years waiting ‘til our world could support a family felt like seconds compared to the months and months of trying. Every month hurt. Every ‘when are you having kids?’ hurt. Having positive test only to find out there was no baby, hurt.”
The Dickersons have not yet shared the gender of the baby or the baby’s name, but Russell has some ideas for the name if it is a boy.
“My family has the tradition of the initials R.E.D,” he says. “Mine’s Russell Edward Dickerson and my dad is Richard Edward Dickerson. I want to keep that tradition going, if it’s a boy, of our ‘Edward Dickerson’ name.”
