Let’s be honest – not all babies are cute.
But Asher James Mooney is not one of those babies.
From the moment he entered this world earlier this year as the child of Dan + Shay’s Shay Mooney and fiancée Hannah Billingsley, country music fans fell immediately in love. We mean, that face! Those arms! Those pudgy little legs!
We need to take a breath from the cuteness overload.
Having recently turned eight months old, little Asher James looks like he is thriving thanks to the love of his adoring parents. “Our little pumpkin is eight months old,” Hannah wrote next to a series of adorable pics of their little one posted to her Instagram page on Sept. 25. “We have four teeth, weigh almost 23 lbs, and are officially on the move! It has been life’s greatest pleasure to watch this sweet baby grow. Your happiness is contagious, son. You are a shining light. We love you, Asher James!”
Of course, behind all those smiles Hannah remained real in another Instagram post just a couple days later. “Real talk here … This past year has been full of BIG changes in my life,” she wrote. “These changes include moving to a different state, being engaged, buying a new home and quitting my job to have the (best) new occupation as full time mom! With Shay on the road a lot and my family and friends hundreds of miles away, I’ve discovered the need for mom friends living in the same life chapter as me.”
