Brad Paisley’s son Huck may only be 6, but what a smart, smart guy that little boy has already become. Paisley’s wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley recently told People magazine that when Huck had to go to the hospital for a broken arm, he used his dad’s first and last names — maybe to get the celebrity treatment in the emergency room.
“Huck just broke his arm!” she told the magazine. “He walked into the hospital, they asked him what his name was and he said ’Brad Paisley.’ He knew how he could maybe get their attention and get the best treatment possible.”
She didn’t say how Huck broke his arm, but it was inevitable. After all, Paisley sang about just such a scenario in his 2010 song “Anything Like Me.” Among the lyrics about finding out he was having a son:
“I started wondering who he was going to be/And I thought heaven help us if he’s anything like me/He’ll probably climb a tree too tall and ride his bike too fast/End up every summer wearin’ something in a cast.”
All Williams-Paisley said about Huck’s playtime is that he and his little brother Jasper, 4, spend a lot of time hanging with her Nashville co-star’s son.
“Connie Britton has become a really good friend,” she said. “Her little boy Yoby and my kids love to play together, so we get together a lot.”
Williams-Paisley also said her character on the show, Peggy Kenter, has a lot of surprises in store this season.
“She makes really bad choices, but she’s madly in love, so she’s just got this desperation about her,” she said of her home-wrecking alter-ego.
