The pair are currently counting down the days until they get to meet their baby boy in August and the country star revealed mom and baby are both “doing great.” 

“She’s healthy and baby’s healthy. So God’s been good to us,” he shared. 

We already know the gender of their first child, but fans will have to wait a few more months before learning the name they have picked.  

According to McCollum, Hallie Ray has “already made up her mind” on their son’s name. 

Announced The News In February

The couple unveiled the exciting news of their first pregnancy on Wednesday (Feb. 7) through a joint post via Instagram. The post captured the couple sharing a kiss while on their tropical getaway to St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. Hallie Ray was seen holding her stomach to signal her growing baby bump. 

“God’s little blessing. We Iove you so much already, Baby M,” she wrote at the time, to which McCollum hilariously commented, “Wow! Awesome news! So happy to hear about this! I love you babe! Congrats!”

Following his appearance on the red carpet, Parker McCollum will take the stage of Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas to perform his fourth No. 1 single, “Burn It Down.” This fan-favorite song penned by McCollum with Lori McKenna, Liz Rose and Hillary Lindsey is up for ACM Visual Media of the Year and Single of the Year.
