Frankie Ballard and his wife Christina are officially the proud parents of a baby girl. The couple welcomed Pepper Lynn Ballard earlier this month on February 8 and just shared the news on February 20.
"Frankie, I'll never forget this unbelievable day with you and how my heart grew a schimillion times watching you hold our baby girl," Christina wrote on Instagram. "Thank you Jesus for my sweet family of 3. My cup is running over and full to the brim. Pepper Lynn you're a precious angel and beautiful gift from Heaven and I love being your Mommy. 🙏🏼 Cue all the tears 😭"
Ballard responded with a comment saying, "MY SOUL IS ON FIRE WITH LOVE," adding, "Chriss, You claimed Motherhood with grace and strength."
Ballard and Christina got married in March 2017 and announced the pregnancy in November 2019. The moment the "Sunshine & Whiskey" singer found out he would be a dad, he recalls experiencing the "most unique feeling."
"I can only describe it as a combination of emotion and words. Shock-tacular, grateful, awe," he told People at the time, adding that the first ultrasound where he saw his baby for the first time "blew my hair straight back."
He continues, "I had a thousand prayers answered in one appointment. To see toes wigglin' and a strong heartbeat sent electricity through my bones."
Looking ahead, fans can expect Ballard's forth studio album to have several songs inspired by his new life as a father. The upcoming album will be his first since 2016's El Rio.
“Purpose is the gasoline of any great creative fire, and a growing family reminds me just how bad I want to make music for mine,” he shared.
Congrats to the sweet couple on the new addition to the family!
