Shay Mooney And Wife Hannah Welcome Baby Boy No.3: "Grateful Doesn't Begin To Cover It"

Shay Mooney serenades his newborn son with "When I Prayed For You" – LISTEN!

Lucky number three! 

Dan + Shay's Shay Mooney and wife Hannah Billingsley have welcomed their third child, a boy. 

The hitmaker turned to social media early Friday (Jan. 20) morning to share the exciting news. The proud parents brought their son into the world on Tuesday, Jan. 17. 

According to the Instagram post, the newborn was lucky enough to receive his father's name – Abram Shay Mooney. 

"Abram Shay Mooney 1/17/23," wrote the hitmaker. "Grateful doesn't begin to cover it❤️." 

The short clip featured the singer-songwriter cradling his son in a hospital chair. While placing his bundle of joy on his bare chest, Mooney sang "When I Prayed For You." The GRAMMY Award-winners recorded the lullaby-like track for the 2017 film, "The Shack." 

Mooney rocked the infant back and forth to sleep, as he was swaddled tightly in a baby blanket. Hannah shared the precious father-son-moment on her personal account, where she also expressed her endless love for their newest addition. 

"First song sang to the newest family member…," she said. "Abram Shay, you're so loved and so prayed over, baby boy. Thankful for all that God has done for us this week. 1/17/23.”

Notable names in the industry flocked to the comments to congratulate the country couple. 

"😢😢😢😢😢 congrats on another perfect little boy!!!!" said RaeLynn. "Perfection. Congratulations, Mooneys!!!" shared Charles Esten. "Congrats brother!!!❤️❤️," added Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus.

Mooney and his wife have yet to share additional information about the birth, including the baby's weight and where Hannah delivered. The two announced that they were expecting their third child in early August. 

The pregnancy announcement featured their other sons – Ames Alexander, 2 ½, and Asher James, 5. Their oldest was initially disappointed to hear that he was getting another brother, as he was hoping for a baby sister. 

"I wanted a sister," said the toddler. "I know, baby. God knows what we need, and God decided you needed another baby brother because you're such a good big brother to Amesy." 

Asher continued, "But does he know that I want a girl, so is he gonna give a girl baby?" 

While Asher wrapped his head around the news, Ames displayed his excitement. Towards the end of the video, the 2-year-old placed his tiny hand on his mother's pregnant belly and said, "hey" to his new best friend.

The country crooner and the former Miss Arkansas tied the knot in October 2017. The star-studded affair took place at Mooney's family property. Asher took part in their special day at nine months old. It wasn't until 2020, that they had their second child. 

CMT will continue to follow this story and will share new information in a timely manner.
