Husband-wife duo Keifer and Shawna Thompson, also known as Thompson Square, welcomed their first child this morning (January 24). Their son, Rigney Cooper, came into the world this morning at 3:46 am ET.
“God blessed us this morning with a little 7 pound 13 oz miracle,” the couple said in a statement to E! News. “It’s hard to explain this kind of love. We’re so overjoyed. He’s already got us wrapped around his little finger.”
According to the couple, the name Rigney comes from Shawna’s side of the family and was her grandmother’s maiden name.
The duo revealed that they were expecting in August with an adorable Instagram photo captioned, “WELL……WE HAVE DECIDED NOT TO BE A DUO ANYMORE!!!!!!! #Jan2016 #T3 #WeDidIt #BabyOnBoard”
The couple has been married for 16 years, but Shawna told PEOPLE last fall that while they love what they do, they felt like something was missing.
“We’ve been together for a long time and we’ve done a lot of things, and we just really felt there was something missing. We love what we do, we love the music business, but we didn’t want to deprive ourselves of having a family.”
Thompson Square made country music waves with the 2010 release of their GRAMMY nominated single, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not.” See the video below.
