Morgan Wallen, 27, revealed he is a father.
Morgan shared the news via Instagram on July 13 with a photo of his newborn son, Indigo “Indie” Wilder, who was born on July 10.
Indie Wilder’s mother, Katie Smith, shared the news of the baby’s birth on Instagram on July 11, noting that he weighed 6 lbs., 13oz.
“Little Wilder, I’m a changed man,” said Morgan on Instagram. “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. I’ll be the Dad you deserve as well as the co-parent your mother deserves. Since you were born, I know that every decision I make will be with you in mind. I promise I’ll always protect you, and do my best to be an example of a good, godly man just like my daddy was for me.
“I knew this day was coming when I got to share this news with y’all. And I’m glad that day is here. I didn’t know what being a dad would feel like, honestly have been a little scared. But it’s the coolest damn feeling, and I’m ready for whatever God has planned for me and my little guy. He’s healthy and happy and while I’m typing this I’m getting in the truck to go hold him right now. Thank you for all the love and prayers. Thank you to my friends and family who have called and texted me letting me know how happy they are for me and that I have their support. I can’t wait to see him hook into his first big one. Indie Wilder.”
Morgan has been turning heads with his music, mullet and more since bursting on the scene two years ago. The 27-year-old native of Sneedville, Tenn. (population 1,346) scored back-to-back-to-back No. 1 singles with “Up Down” (June 2018), “Whiskey Glasses” (June 2019) and “Chasin’ You” (May 2020).
