Congrats! Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard and his wife Hayley welcomed a baby boy to the family on Monday, Aug. 19! Luca Reed Hubbard was born at 3:40 a.m. in Nashville, TN, weighing in at 8 pounds, 11 ounces, and measuring 20.5 inches long — and his name has the sweetest meaning!
The couple, who have been married since July 2017, first announced the pregnancy in an Instagram post in February, and shared Luca's name with friends and family at a backyard baby sprinkle in June, according to People. "Luca is a name we loved and it means 'bringer of light,'" Hayley said. "It also reminds us of Italy, which is one of our happy places! Reed is Tyler's middle name, and we wanted Luca to have a little piece of Tyler in his name."
While the family had been awaiting Luca's arrival, the baby came sooner than expected, arriving right after Tyler returned home from his Can't Say I Ain't Country tour. "Our doula Lori said Tyler and I are too connected for Luca to not wait," 31-year-old Hayley said. "The moment Tyler flew in from his last show of the weekend, the contractions started! . . . Tyler was so helpful in the birthing process from start to finish, and I'm so glad he made it home in time."
Hayley faced a difficult first trimester during her pregnancy with Luca, but Tyler said her strength during that time was an inspiration. "Hayley was absolutely amazing throughout the whole labor," the 32-year-old country singer said. "She was so patient, positive, and strong. She honestly made it look easy. I feel so blessed to get to raise a family with such an incredible woman and amazing mother. She was meant for this and it's so special to see."
Tyler and Hayley first became parents in December 2017 when they welcomed baby Olivia Rose. Now the happy family is a little bit bigger, but Tyler says he and Hayley have "a good team around us now that helps out, which is key in any aspect of life." Congratulations, Hubbard Family!
