Ty took to Instagram on July 6 with official confirmation that he and his wife are set to welcome a little girl in the fall. He also revealed the name that they’ve chosen for their princess-to-be.

“I can’t wait to meet our little girl, excited is a huge understatement,” Ty wrote, alongside a picture of a pink baby outfit.

The shot also includes a photo of an ultrasound, and the baby’s name, Oakley Ray Dillon, spread across the front.

Haley, who also posted the same snap on her Instagram page, added that she was 19 weeks along in her pregnancy.

She then took to Twitter to detail how the soon-to-be parents came up with the name Oakley Ray.

Little Oakley is expected to arrive in November.
