While some country couples can’t wait to announce the birth of their children, others take a day or two to quietly enjoy and get used to being a new family. Singer-songwriter Greg Bates and his songbird wife, Shelley Skidmore, fell into the latter category.
Greg and Shelley actually welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Bo Rogers Bates, last Thursday, Oct. 19, but they just shared the big news this weekend.
On his Instagram page, Greg showed a picture of the family of three. And while he didn’t spill any deets on Baby Bo, he did have some sweet thoughts on their new addition and his bride.
“At 6:53 a.m. Thursday morning our whole world changed forever,” he writes. “In the past two days we have fallen in love with this little guy over and over again. God is amazing and we are so thankful for this new addition to our family. @shelleyskidmore you are my absolute hero and I love you more than [you] will ever know for bringing him into this world. Bo Rogers Bates we are so lucky to be your parents.”
Greg shared a second post, side-by-side photos of himself as a newborn and Bo’s newborn photo, and there is definitely a resemblance.
That’s a good thing! Greg is a handsome daddy, but let’s face it. Bo couldn’t miss. His mommy is a hottie, too!
Congratulations Greg and Shelley, and welcome Bo!
