Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard is a proud father of two!
The award-winning singer/songwriter and his wife Hayley welcomed their second child, a baby boy, into the world on Monday, August 19 at 3:40 am, according to People. Luca arrived on his due date, weighing 8 lbs., 11 oz. and measuring 20.5 inches long.
“Hayley was absolutely amazing throughout the whole labor. She was so patient, positive, and strong. She honestly made it look easy,” Hubbard shared with the publication. “I feel so blessed to get to raise a family with such an incredible woman and amazing mother. She was meant for this and it’s so special to see.”
Luca couldn’t have arrived at a more perfect time as Tyler had just returned from his weekend run on Florida Georgia Line’s Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour.
“Our doula Lori said Tyler and I are too connected for Luca to not wait. The moment Tyler flew in from his last show of the weekend, the contractions started!” Hayley explained. “Tyler was so helpful in the birthing process from start to finish, and I’m so glad he made it home in time.”
Baby Luca joins big sister Olivia Rose, who was born in December of 2017.
“Luca is a name we loved and it means ‘bringer of light,’” Hayley previously told People. “It also reminds us of Italy, which is one of our happy places!”
“Reed is Tyler’s middle name, and we wanted Luca to have a little piece of Tyler in his name,” she added.
Congratulations to the Hubbard family!
