The country singer took to social media to reveal the news with his followers on Tuesday evening in a joint Instagram post with his wife.
“God gave me a…. BOY! So grateful we get to tell you Remington is going to be a big brother this fall!! 🎉🎉,” they captioned the post.
The sweet announcement video features the couple and their 2-year-old son, Remington.
The clip documented the moment Kailey found out that she was expecting to the moment she revealed the exciting news with Russell. At the conclusion of the clip, which was soundtracked by Russell Dickerson’s current single “God Gave Me A Girl,” the pair found out they are expecting a baby boy.
Watch The Announcement
The news comes after Kailey shared an emotional post letting fans know that suffered a miscarriage in 2022. Alongside a photo of Russell and Remington on the beach, she penned a gut-wrenching message about the pain she endured after losing a child.
“2022 was incredibly wonderful and heart-wrenching… We saw some of the most beautiful places in the world, some of my favorite places… some big -dream-come-true moments… and had wounds only a handful of people saw and tended to,” she wrote in her post to Instagram on Saturday (Jan. 21).
Kailey then said that they lost a baby in September at eight weeks.
“It felt like drowning and trying to swim towards sun to find the surface,” she shared. “I didn’t know if I’d ever share this, but something about going into this next year, I needed to leave this news in 2022. The loss; however, is something that will always be written into our story. I know I’ll share more about it when I’m ready, but for now, and for the last several months, I’m holding these two extra close…”
She reminded fans that while social media can often be a highlight reel of people’s lives, many are also struggling behind the lens.
“I have read several recaps from people this year and not one has been perfect. It all came with both beauty and ashes. It gives me hope knowing we are more connected than we think. And it gives me solace knowing nothing and no one’s life is perfect or without pain. May we all give each other some more grace this next year… more kindness because we don’t know what someone is truly going through… more love because we all need it. And may Jesus be near to the broken-hearted. He sure has been for us 🤍”
Russell and Kailey Dickerson met in 2008 while attending Belmont University in Nashville and later wed in April of 2013. Seven years after tying the knot, the beloved country couple welcomed a son, Remington Edward Dickerson, on September 10, 2020.
Prior to welcoming their son Remington, Russell opened up about their pregnancy struggles in an interview with PEOPLE.
“It just got to the point where we’re like, ‘Well, if it happens, it happens. It’ll happen when it does.’ It’s all God’s timing on that part,” the “Home Sweet” singer told the outlet at the time.
Additionally, Russell Dickerson recently released his self-titled album, which marked his third full-length project. The album features 15 tracks, including his current single “God Gave Me A Girl,” “She Likes It” featuring Jake Scott, “I Wonder,” and “I Remember,” among others.
