Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay was far from “Speechless” this weekend, gushing on Instagram about the latest addition to his family. Shay and his wife Hannah welcomed Ames Alexander into the world on Friday, and celebrated with a sweet message on Sunday. This is the couple’s second son, after giving birth to Asher James back in 2017.
“Ames Alexander, welcome to the Mooney family. Asher has been so excited to meet you, ‘baby brover.’ You are already so loved,” Shay shared alongside a collection of photos of the newborn, including an adorable shot of the two holding hands. “I’m so proud to be your dad. And you have the best momma on planet earth.”
“Yesterday, Asher asked Hannah when baby brother’s mom was gonna come pick him up and take him to his house... so we might be in for a slight rude awakening.”
Hannah added in her own post, “the world is already a brighter place because you’re in it.”
The couple first announce their pregnancy back in August, saying “we thought for sure we’d be announcing a baby girl, but God has other plans for the Mooneys. Found out today we’re having a BOY! Bout to be a new duo in town.”
As for Shay’s other duo, Dan + Shay , the pair once again won Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 2020 GRAMMY Awards last month. It was their second win in the category for the second year in a row.
