Congratulations to new daddy Eric Church, who welcomed a baby boy over the weekend

Bad boys often make great daddies, especially in the case of Eric Church.

So it’s with an almost certain full heart that Church announced the birth of his son this week! Eric’s wife Katherine gave birth on Feb. 15 to the baby boy, who weighed in at 6 pounds and twelve ounces and was 21 inches long.

So we bet you are wondering what they named baby Church, right?

Well, of course they named him Tennessee — Tennessee Hawkins Church to be exact.

A self-proclaimed sleep-deprived Church says they plan to call their second boy Hawk for short. “I’m thrilled that Hawk and his mom are doing well,” said Church in a recent press release. “We aren’t sleeping very much, but we are enjoying every part of this incredible journey.  I’m very blessed and thankful.”

Of course, Church won’t have much time to relish in the joy of new fatherhood. Church will embark on the spring leg of his “The Outsiders World Tour” on March 4, with tour dates stretching from Tampa, FL to Vancouver, BC and including cities such as Austin, Boston, Cincinnati, Lexington, Jacksonville, Newark, Raleigh, Seattle, Washington DC and more.
