The child is the daughter of Caroline’s brother Bo and wife Ellen Boyer. She was born last summer with cardiac issues and was treated at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville.
While maintaining the family’s privacy, Bryan occasionally updated fans on her progress through his app. In December, he shared that the child had undergone a heart procedure but that she was getting stronger.
Bryan and wife have dealt with several family tragedies, including the deaths of his older brother, Chris, along with his sister Kelly and her husband Ben. The late couple’s child Til now lives in Nashville with Luke and Caroline Bryan.
