The relationship between a father and a son is so important, particularly because boys often look to their dad for guidance and approval. They usually see their father as the prime role model when it comes to handling relationships, developing a personality and even establishing personal interests.
With that said, it’s so clear that Jason Aldean is already setting the tone for baby son Memphis’ future. In fact, the doting daddy, who welcomed his boy on Dec. 1 2017, with wife Brittany, has now decided to start the youngster early in becoming a sports fan — or maybe even a future athlete.
As you likely know, Jason is an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves. Fun fact: He even played baseball in high school. So when the Braves took on their rivals, the New York Mets, during the opening of 2018 spring training, he made sure that Memphis had a front row seat in the comfort of the Aldean family home.
An adorable video, posted to Jason’s Instagram ad Facebook pages, shows the wee one enjoying the game while dressed in a Nike sweatshirt.
The little bundle of joy, who is pretty much the spitting image of his papa, doesn’t even move his eyes away from the television when Jason asks, “What are you doing Memphis? Are you watching your first Braves game with dad?”
“You gotta start ’em early,” Jason, who is also father to daughters, Kendyl and Keeley from a previous marriage, adds, while panning his camera over from the baby to the game on TV.
Yes, we know that Memphis can’t walk or talk yet, so there’s no telling whether or not the little guy will actually choose to be a fan of the same team as his dad, or even take up the sport of baseball. Nonetheless, Jason is quite confident that his nearly three month old mini-me will have some sort of interest in the professional sports team when he grows older.
“Future Atlanta Brave watching his first baseball game. ⚾,”Jason captioned the clip.
We already know that Jason is trying to get Memphis to root for his Georgia Bulldogs, too. You’ll recall that the youngster was decked out in Bulldogs gear even before coming home from the hospital after his birth.
“Cheering on the Dawgs from the hospital with the newest member of Dawg Nation. #secchampionship #godawgs,” Jason, who also has his daughters cheering on the team, wrote on Instagram at the time.
Aside from bonding over sports, it seems Memphis has already gotten to join his daddy on his tour bus. Earlier this week, Jason shared a photo of Memphis testing out the wheels.
“#Buslife,” the “You Make It Easy” singer captioned the photo that shows the little one covered up in a blanket, and seemingly waving to the camera.
Jason will begin his 2019 “High Noon Neon Tour” on May 10 in Kansas City, Missouri. The 34-city trek features special guests Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina.
