Rodney Atkins and his wife Rose Falcon welcomed a baby boy on Thursday (Dec. 14). Ryder Falcon Atkins is the couple’s first child together.
The baby was born in Nashville at 2:02PM, weighing 8 lbs, 13 oz. and measuring 20 inches at birth. People had the scoop on the baby news, with the “Watching You” singer explaining that by giving him Falcon as a middle name, he was honoring his wife’s 96-year-old grandfather and her father.
“He is by far the most precious early Christmas present ever for me, Rose and big brother Eli,” he says.
Atkins and Falcon turned to social media to announce their pregnancy in July. The outdoor photo included this caption: “We are thrilled to announce our family is growing. Baby Atkins will arrive in December and we know Elijah is going to be the best big brother.” Elijah is Atkins’ 16-year-old son from his previous marriage.
In recent weeks photos of a very pregnant Falcon were shared on social media. The glowing mommy-to-be looked happy, but ready to be done with it all.
