The race is on for the last few country music babies of 2017 Instagram/@rosefalcon

We knew that December was going to be a big month for country music babies. Heck, the whole year has been back-to-back gender reveals, baby showers and those highly-anticipated birth announcements. We aren’t mad about it. In fact, we’re excited to see which country baby will be born next. And it looks like it could be Rodney Atkins and Rose Falcon’s little one.

Both Rod and Rose shared photos on their socials, and it looks like they just had their last doctor’s visit before delivery day!

Rodney posted an image of his beautiful bride cradling her bump and wrote, “Beautiful mama to be … any day now @rosefalcon #sweetbabyry.”

Yes, we do know that Rodney and Rose are expecting a little boy, their first together, and his name will be Ryder Falcon Atkins.

Rose shared a similar image on her Instagram, along with a couple more that seem to imply Mama might be more ready than baby for the little one to arrive. Even her caption says, “This could be our last Dr. appointment before baby …. or not. Sure hope so. #pregnancyface #sweetbabyry”


The field is narrowing for country music babies due this month. Jason Aldean and wife Brittany welcomed baby boy Memphis on Dec. 1, a few days before his due date, and on Dec. 12 Dylan Scott and his wife, Blair, welcomed their son, Beckett Scott Robinson.

If memory serves, the only country stars that remain to deliver this month are Rod and Rose, Lady Antebellum’s Dave Haywood and wife Kelli, and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and wife Hayley. We believe that Hayley is due closer to Christmas, so Rose could beat her to the finish line.


But babies will come when they are darn good and ready, so let’s just settle in and wait.

Now don’t even think that all of these babies arriving in 2017 means there will be a drought in 2018. Not by any stretch. Craig Wayne Boyd and his wife, Taylor, are kicking things off in January adding a new baby boy to their family of four that already includes a boy and a girl. And Jessie James Decker and her husband, Eric, will also add another boy to their family that also includes a daughter and son. But Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott and her husband Chris Tyrrell, and Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane are the real overachievers. Both of those country families are adding twins to their broods in early 2018.
