Jason Aldean and wife Brittany
Aldean, 41, and his wife of nearly four years announced their second baby on the way in July, sharing a photo of Memphis lounging on his side while wearing a “Big Brother” onesie.
In August, they confirmed they would be welcoming a daughter through a fun sex-reveal video shared to Instagram that showed Kendyl and Keeley swinging at balls that released a pink dust once hit.
The couple celebrated their baby girl with a sweet co-ed shower in November, held at Allenbrooke Farms in Spring Hill, Tennessee. They chose the occasion to share their little one’s name, which was displayed via an adorable neon sign by Shop Narwall.

“After having our son, we knew we wanted to have two kids,” Aldean said. “I have my two older daughters already, so after Memphis was born we knew we wanted to have another one pretty quick — to go ahead and knock it out and have one that was a little closer in age to him.”
In April, Brittany opened up about the year-long journey it took to conceive Memphis, recalling how she had to get an endometriosis diagnosis and, eventually, IVF treatments.
“The IVF was probably harder than the actual pregnancy, for me, because it was just such a roller coaster and so difficult,” the lifestyle blogger and makeup artist said. “It’s such high highs and such low lows, and no one really knows that you’re going through it all so you have to just put on a game face and pretend that you’re not giving yourself shots in your stomach every day, all day.”
In early January, the country singer said he wasn’t too sure about the way Brittany had been preparing their son for imminent big-brother duties — namely, by having him spend time with a doll.
“I’m like, ‘Hold up, time out!’ ” recalled the then-dad-to-be. “Seeing my son playing with a baby doll was kind of odd. Like, shouldn’t he have a truck or something?”
The “You Make It Easy” hitmaker then clarified that he realized his wife was “getting him prepared … to maybe play with the baby” using her technique.
Still, he thought Memphis would be fine without any advance training. “I think he’s going to do great,” Aldean said.

On Jan. 25, Brittany showed off the nursery she and Aldean had put the final touches on for little Navy before she completed their family of six.
Standing out among the room’s lavender furniture and accents, the centerpiece was undoubtedly a blue neon “Navy” sign sitting behind the crib — a throwback to the sweet way the couple chose to reveal their daughter’s name at their baby shower late last year.
“I wanted it to be girly but with a little bit of edge. So we did the lavender accents but we also did this accent wall in navy with gold glitter,” Brittany explained of the room, giving her followers a close-up view.
