When Steve Moakler released his latest project, Born Ready, the title track was a message of strength and the knowledge that you’re ready to handle anything that comes your way. With that sentiment in mind, the singer is ready to embark on one of life’s greatest challenges: fatherhood.
On Wednesday, July 18, Moakler shared a photo to Instagram to announce his baby news. With his wife Gracie by his side and a onesie that read “Moakler” in his hand, the singer wrote “Well team…it looks like we’ve got a 3rd passenger coming on the road this year. It’s gonna be bumpin’,” with the hashtag #DadJokes.
Gracie also shared the snap, adding “Sooo it turns out cakes aren’t the only thing I’ve been baking this year. We cannot even get over how excited we are to meet this little human!! 😭🙌🏻👶🏻 Gonna have a third passenger on our camper tour this year.”
The proud dad-to-be beamed in the photo while Gracie placed a loving hand on her growing baby bump.
The news of their expanding family comes just two months after Moakler wrapped his “Born Ready Tour.” In a partnership with Mack Trucks, the singer was overjoyed to headline his own shows and bring his new music directly to fans.
“I’m fired up about getting back on the road this spring!” said Moakler in a press release at the time. “This will be our fifth consecutive spring headline tour, and I’m honored that Mack Trucks will be a part of our growing tradition this year. I can’t wait to play the new music we’ve been working on and start a new chapter with our fans. I think it’s gonna be the best one yet!”
This baby will spend plenty of time on the road, as Moakler gears up to hit the road again on this summer’s “Hometowns & Campgrounds Tour,” for which he and his wife will travel in an airstream trailer, playing shows in backyards across the country. Fans can even host a stop! (Visit his website to learn how.)
Moakler and Gracie wed in 2013. The new addition will be the couple’s first child together.
