Congratulations are in order for Charles Kelley and Cassie McConnell Kelley.
The Lady Antebellum star, 34, and his blogger wife have welcomed their first child – son Ward Charles Kelley – on Thursday (February 11), they announced via her website, Womanista.
After years of struggling to conceive, the couple welcomed their first child at 9:20 a.m. (c). The new addition weighed in at 7 pounds and 9 ounces and measured 20 inches long.
“We can’t stop staring at him and he hasn’t stopped chit-chatting with us since he arrived,” they announced. “He’s got Momma’s nose and Daddy’s eyes and vocal cords and a head full of blond hair.”
“We feel like our life just began today and are so grateful for a healthy baby boy in our arms,” they added.
In August, Cassie revealed their pregnancy news on her website. She said they have tried to conceive for years.
“When all was said and done our doctor informed us that we had about a 1 percent chance of conceiving a child naturally. Yeah. 1 percent,” she shared. “We never stopped hoping though … We made a plan to regroup this fall and explore other options to expand our family. Then it happened. I woke up one morning in June and there it was, a positive pregnancy test. I was in shock. Happy shock, but shock.”
Pop superstar Madonna posted a throwback photo with three of her children – Lourdes, Rocco and David – via Instagram Wednesday.
“Days of innocence. In Malawi. How I miss this time,” the Material Mom, 57, captioned the image, including a prayer emoji.
In the photo, the Holiday hitmaker has her arms around Rocco, now 15, who is at the center of an international custody battle.
The pop star and her ex-husband Guy Ritchie, 47, are currently fighting over their teen son. The legal battle began when Rocco left his mom’s Rebel Heart tour to live with his father in the U.K. in December.
Although Rocco remained in England over the holidays, the Vogue singer posted a photo of her son smiling on Christmas Day.
“Merry X-mas to the Sun-shine of my Life!” she wrote.
The pop superstar and the British filmmaker divorced in 2008 after seven years together. They are also the parents of David, whom they adopted in 2006.
The exes are set to appear in New York Supreme Court for a rescheduled hearing on March 2.
Single mom Bristol Plain shared birthday greetings for her mother, politician Sarah Palin, in celebration of her 52nd birthday.
“Happy birthday mom!! Thanks for loving my kids like your own,” the Dancing with the Stars alum, 25, Instagrammed the image of her famous mother cuddling her two kids: son Tripp, 7, and daughter Sailor, 1 month.
In another shot, Bristol captioned a mom-and-me photo: “52 and still looks this good.”
Earlier this week, Bristol posted a photo with her newborn daughter at work.
And last month, she shared a shot returning to work after her one-month maternity leave.
“Back to real life today! I was fortunate enough to take the last month off to stay home with my babies. Today marks the first time I’ve left SailorG, but I could not be more thankful she’s in the best of hands!!” she captioned the image with her kids.
On Dec. 23, Bristol welcomed her baby girl with ex-fiancé Dakota Meyer.
The daughter of Sarah Palin has been working as a doctor’s assistant for a dermatologist in Anchorage, Alaska, for the past six years after her son was born in 2009.
