It looks like Shay Mooney of the duo Dan + Shay has a lot to celebrate. Earlier this week, the singer scored his sixth No. 1 hit with “All To Myself.” Now, it turns out he is growing his brood by one!
Mooney and his beautiful wife Hannah Billingsley turned to their respective Instagram pages on Wednesday (Aug. 21) to announce that they’re expecting their second child. That’s not all though. They also revealed their baby-to-be will be a boy.
“Celebrating a number 1 with baby number 2!” Mooney captioned, alongside a series of photos and a video that feature the couple’s first-born son, Asher James celebrating the epic surprise with a cookie in hand. “Hannah and I have been dying to share the news. We thought for sure we’d be announcing a baby girl, but God has other plans for the Mooney’s. Found out today we’re having a BOY! Bout to be a new duo in town ???.”
In the slideshow, two-year-old Asher James adorably has his chocolate-free hand placed on a blue heart signaling the gender of his impending sibling. Billingsley shared the same sweet photo spread on her social media pages with a similar reaction.
She wrote, “Celebrating a #1 song this week… with baby #2! We have cried and laughed all morning (I thought for sure it was a girl)! ? We are over the moon and can’t wait to see this precious guy be the sweetest big brother, early next year! ?”
The Mooney’s celebrated the birth of Asher James Mooney in Jan 2017, and tied the knot in October of the same year on the Mooney family property in Arkansas. Congratulations to the growing family!
