Charles Kelley and Wife Welcome a Son

"Life Just Began Today," the New Parents Say

“We feel like our life just began today and are so grateful for a healthy baby boy in our arms,” Cassie and Charles Kelley just shared about the arrival of their son Ward Charles Kelley.

The healthy little boy, their first child, was born Thursday morning (Feb. 11) morning, weighs 7 pounds, 9 ounces and is 20 inches long.

And according to Cassie’s website Womanista, “He’s got momma’s nose and daddy’s eyes and vocal cords and a head full of blond hair.”

“We can’t stop staring at him and he hasn’t stopped chitchatting with us since he arrived,” the proud new parents said.
