They say there’s a first time for everything. That phrase couldn’t ring more true for Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard, who recently became a father. And even though the 31-year-old singer only just stepped into the dad role, it sounds like he’s already having the time of his life learning everything there is to learn about his precious little princess, Olivia Rose.
In a brand new interview with ET Canada, the country music superstar spoke about how much fun he and his wife, Hayley, are having adjusting to life as new parents over the last seven weeks.
“It’s an amazing journey. It’s so cool,” he gushed, while seated alongside bandmate Brian Kelley. “We’re kind of getting into our groove and figuring it all out, but it’s a really fun thing to do, especially with your wife. We just kind of take it on as a team, and its cool.”
Even though Tyler can’t help but rave about the joys of parenthood, he hasn’t quite convinced his duo partner to join the “dad” club.
“No, not yet,” Brian said when asked if he and his wife, Brittney, were considering adding a child into the mix. “We’re trying to wait a little bit longer.”
Waiting is perfectly fine too, as timing is everything. In fact, if you recall, Olivia was born just two days before Christmas, on Dec. 23, 2017, which means she’s still only in her early infant stages. Tyler says his daughter’s birth couldn’t have come at a better time, as he will be able to share plenty of time with her in these early days.
“It was perfect because we were just finishing up our tour,” he explained of the precious buttercup’s arrival. “We knew we were going to have this year off so we could kind of stay at home and work on some different things. And [I could] be a dad, and kind of help Hayley out with that. [The band] just went away for pretty much our first road trip this weekend, away from Hayley and Olivia. It definitely took some adjusting and … a different level of missing being here. So it’s nice to be off the road.”
Tyler and Brian, who have been riding high off their collaborative smash, “Meant To Be” with Bebe Rexha, are currently working on writing and recording new music. Fans can see them live in March when they begin a run of festival dates. You can check out floridageorgialine.com for more information on concert listings.
