It’s been a year of highs and lows for Texas country superstar Josh Abbott, but things definitely appear to be on the upswing.
Enlisting the help of his baby girl, Emery, Josh popped the question via her onesie and a strategically-placed ring box, and girlfriend Taylor Parnell, of course, said yes. But seriously, when your proposal is this precious, how could you not agree to it?
Earlier this year, Josh’s father, David, suffered a debilitating stroke that he sadly didn’t recover from. About a month later, David passed away, devastating his wife and sons.
But the one thing we know about the circle of life is that it never ends. And it was only about a month later that Josh had some happy news. He and Taylor … and pup Trigger … were expecting a baby.
Emery made her arrival on May 5, turning Josh’s world upside down. In a post he shared on Instagram for Taylor’s birthday, he summed it up: “What a difference just one year makes! Last July we were dating in Cabo; now we have a perfect baby and a house,” he wrote. “You changed my life for the better! I’m so glad my dad got to know you. Thank you for being such a blessing and for giving me another one.”

Happy birthday love ❤️ what a difference just one year makes! Last July we were dating in Cabo; now we have a perfect baby & a house. You changed my life for the better! I'm so glad my dad got to know you. Thank you for being such a blessing and for giving me another one. I'm your only flaw
If that isn’t romance, we aren’t sure what is! Tissues, please.
