Canaan Smith and Wife Welcome First Child, a Surprise Baby Girl!
Canaan Smith and wife Christy have welcomed their first child together, and she's a girl! The couple's daughter, Virginia Rose Smith, made her entrance on Oct. 31, 2019, but they didn't know ahead of time that she was a girl.
"We love surprises and we are waiting to find out [the sex] in the delivery room,” the "Love You Like That" singer told People back in September.
Of course, Smith and his wife are beyond thrilled that she has arrived and is healthy.
"I’ve tried putting words to this but keep erasing them cause nothing says it. For now, I’ll just say thank you Jesus for the precious gift of life and unconditional love," Smith writes on Instagram to accompany a video of his sleeping newborn. "Virginia Rose is perfect inside out. And so is her mom."
"We’ve had one week with this little miracle and I already can’t remember what life was like before her," Christy writers on her own Instagram account. "Virginia Rose is absolutely incredible in every way possible! The past week has been amazing and overwhelming, but we’re all starting to get the hang of it day by day. God is so good!!!
Baby Virginia Rose Smith was 7 lbs., 10 oz. at birth.
Country duo Florida Georgia Line were quick to send their well wishes to the family, saying they, "Can’t wait to meet her. Kristian Bush also sent his love to the three, writing: "God bless and welcome Virginia!"
Christy broke that they were expecting in a rather unusual way — at a Home Depot! The couple was listening to an employee give a presentation about an in-home consultation about their water filter and immediately after, she broke the news to her husband.
