Charles Kelley and his beautiful wife, Cassie McConnell Kelley deserve an enormous amount of congratulations today! 

The couple announced that they welcomed their first child into the world this morning! Using his wife’s Womanista blog, they shared some feelings of complete and utter joy! 

“We feel like our life just began today and are so grateful…”

But if they had listened to doctors, this day may have never come for them. 

Married in 2009, the pair had been trying to conceive for years. When they couldn’t wrap their heads around why they couldn’t, they visited a fertility doctor. The news the specialist came back with wasn’t good. 

The fertility doctor gave them a bleak outlook: a 1% chance of conceiving naturally. 

Taking some time to think about their options, the couple awoke to what felt like a miracle.

“The plan was to start IVF,” Cassie said. “To our surprise and incredible excitement, I got pregnant in May and then found out we were expecting in June.”

On Thursday, February 11th, 2016 at 10:20 a.m. ET, Charles and Cassie Kelley welcomed their son, Ward Charles Kelley into the world! He weighs 7lbs, 9oz and measures 20 inches long. 

“We can’t stop staring at him and he hasn’t stopped chit-chatting with us since he arrived,” the elated couple said in their announcement. “He’s got Momma’s nose and Daddy’s eyes and vocal cords and a head full of blond hair.”

What an incredible blessing for these two! The Kelley’s have had a great start to the year so far – with Charles’ solo career taking off like wildfire and now a bouncing baby boy, they have had an amazing few months!

Speaking of his solo career…have you heard his first single yet?
