Luke Combs’ wife, Nicole, is settling into life at home with a newborn and recently took to Instagram stories to share a few more details about their son, Tex Lawrence.
During an Instagram Q&A on Wednesday evening (July 6), the new mom revealed the inspiration behind his unique name, how much he weighed at birth, and more.
When a follower asked how they decided on the name Tex, Nicole revealed that his name was inspired by family members on both sides of the family: Tex is Luke’s great uncle’s name, and Lawrence is her father’s name.
She admitted the transition to life with a newborn came with a few challenges.
“It’s crazy how sudden everything changes, haha,” she wrote. “No matter how much I thought I prepared for everything, I still feel unprepared. The no sleep has been the hardest for me, but every mom and baby are different.”
Tex Lawrence arrived on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19, just one day before his due date, weighing 7lb, 6 oz.
In response to a follower who asked who she thinks the baby looks like, Nicole said she feels like little Tex is changing every day and on that specific day, he looked more like Luke than her.
She also revealed that she and Luke were born with full heads of hair, so it’s no surprise their son has a head full as well.
Nicole wrapped up her Q&A by thanking followers for their outpouring of support.
“So many encouraging words from Y’all and I just have to say y’all are the best,” she wrote. “I truly don’t deserve you. It means a lot more than you know.”
Luke Combs returns to the road on Thursday with a run of shows in Canada. He is currently celebrating a No.1 album debut with his just-released new project, Growin’ Up.
The 12-track album features the chart-topping hit, “Doin’ This,” Combs’ current single, “The Kind Of Love We Make,” and “Outrunnin’ Your Memory,” a duet with Miranda Lambert.
The reigning CMA Entertainer Of The Year will hit the road this fall on his headlining Middle Of Somewhere Tour with direct support from Jordan Davis. The trek, which kicks off on September 2 in Bangor, ME, will also feature special guests Morgan Wade and Lainey Wilson on select dates.
In November 2022, the country hitmaker will launch his Canadian tour with special guests Riley Green and Chayce Beckham.
