Congratulations to Love and Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles and his fiancée Jenna Kennedy who welcomed a baby boy on Monday (December 2).
The couple have named their son Jett Barker Liles. Jett arrived at 8:40 a.m. in Nashville and weighed in at 7 lbs., 7 oz. and measures 20.5 inches long.
Stephen told People, “It was the greatest rush I have ever experienced. Jenna and I are so thrilled to be parents. It’s the best thing that has happened to us. We can’t wait to take him home and for the whole world to meet him!”
In a photo posted on Instagram Stephen is seen holding Jett and standing next to his Love and Theft partner Eric Gunderson and his son Camden.
The caption reads: “What a blessing! Life is so fun & Gods timing is perfect! The best years are ahead!! @jettbarkerliles @ewgunder #camdenwilliamgunderson #newduo #JettCam or #CamdenJett either or ; ) #mossyoak.”
The pregnancy had come as a surprise. Kennedy found out the news while at a doctor’s appointment.
“All I could do was laugh,” Kennedy, 26, recalled.
“We’re having a child; we’re in love; we’re getting married. What could be wrong with that?” Liles added. “It’s God’s timing, not ours.”
