Morgan Wallen and his 5-day-old son, Indigo Wilder, are basically twins!

The country hitmaker shared an adorable snap of himself and his newborn son with fans on Wednesday evening (July 15), simply captioning the sweet new photo, “Little sleepy guy.”

Wallen’s post comes just two days after he shocked fans with the announcement that he’s a father to Indigo, revealing that he is a “changed man” after meeting his son.

“It’s not just me anymore, and I’m glad it’s not,” Wallen wrote. “This year has been the hardest of my life in so many ways, but that’s not what i will remember it by. You are. You are a gift and this tough year just made sense. I’ll be the Dad you deserve as well as the co-parent your mother deserves.”

Wallen shares little Indigo with his ex-fiancée, Katie Smith. According to social media posts, the two were engaged but broke it off sometime in 2019.

Indigo Wilder was born on Friday, July 10 at 5:43 pm and weighed 6lbs, 13 oz. He’s the first child for both Wallen and Smith.
