Country singer Morgan Wallen is a dad. Wallen, 27, announced on Instagram he has welcomed a baby boy. Son Indigo “Indie” Wilder was born to Wallen and his ex, Katie Smith, on Friday, July 10 in Nashville, Tennessee. Smith and Wallen were at one point engaged, according to her past Instagram Stories.
Wallen wrote on Instagram alongside a photo holding his son, “Since you came into the world Friday, I see mine differently now. It’s not just me anymore, and I’m glad it’s not. 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.” Wallen promised the baby that he will be “the Dad you deserve as well as the co-parent your mother deserves.”
Wallen said that he is “glad” to share the news of his son’s arrival, admitting he was “a little scared” to learn what parenthood feels like. “But it’s the coolest damn feeling,” he said, “and I’m ready for whatever God has planned for me and my little guy.”
