Justin Moore: Third Baby on the Way

“We are so blessed that God has given us this gift for the third time.” That’s what Justin Moore had to say when he and his wife Kate announced they are going to have their third baby this summer.

Moore also joked to People magazine that his older girls — Kennedy Faye, 2, and Ella Kole, 4 — are ready for a brother.

“Ella and Kennedy want a brother, and so do I! As long as we have another healthy child, we will be happy regardless,” he said.

When Moore’s first daughter Ella was born, he said, “She and my wife are perfect. Both are doing great. All I can say is, wow! It’s the most unbelievable thing I’ve ever been through … so thankful.”

And then when Kennedy came along, Moore revealed where her middle name had come from.

“Faye was my grandmother’s name, who passed away a couple of years ago, so we thought it would be a great way to remember her,” he says.

So far, Moore and his wife haven’t shared any names they are considering for this new addition to the family, but if it is a boy, I hope they’ll consider Cole for a first name, which is Moore’s middle name. A boy with the name Cole Moore would be instantly cool. Almost as cool as, say, Knox Bentley, Ryker Mobley Brice and Jett Barker Liles, all sons of country stars (Dierks Bentley, Lee Brice and Stephen Barker Liles, respectively) born in the last four months.

The only tweet Moore has shared about this pregnancy was, “It’s official.” But I’m sure as his wife’s pregnancy progresses, he’ll be anxious to share more good news with his nearly 560,000 followers.

No due date has been announced. Moore and his wife have been married since September 2007.
