Clay Cook and wife, Brooke, just announced their newest addition to the ZBB family on August 22. This has been a long-awaited occasion for the entire family.
In January, they posted a darling family photo with now big brother – Charlie Cook – reading The Berenstain Bears “New Baby.” The look on his face is priceless and you can tell right away that he’s been ready to be a big brother for a while now.
The cooks weren’t the only ZBB members to celebrate new life this year. In February, guitarist/pianist, Coy Bowles introduced us to a baby girl that is bound to rock. With his wife and little girl in matching outfits – the family smiled for cameras inside the hospital room.
And the darling baby photos didn’t stop there…
Bassist Matt Mangano welcomed his bundle of joy in April. Mangano posted to Instagram and even gave his wife, Emily, a sweet shout out saying “Meet our newest creation – Mason Thomas Mangano. He’s just perfect, and [Emily Mangano] is a total champion. What a way to start the week!”
Now, in August, the Cooks finally added the sweet blessing that everyone was waiting for. Clay Cook’s recent post shows his son sleeping peacefully, swaddled in a cozy blanket. The proud dad gave news of a healthy baby saying “[Brooke Cook] & I are thrilled to announce the arrival of Theron Maine Cook. Mama & baby are safe & happy. I’m so lucky in this life. 8/22/18, 9:01pm, 7lbs 12oz, 19 3/4in.”
The extended family – aka the band – got in on the celebration. Their lovely post consisted of family photos that instantly warmed our hearts. Alongside the image, they congratulated the family saying Welcome to the ZBB family, Theron Maine Cook! Congratulations to mom, dad [Clay Cook] and big brother, Charlie!!”
Not to be left out – big brother, Charlie is just as excited as the band! Cook recently posted a hilarious video of him dancing with joy now that he has little Theron in his life. He is obviously going to be a great big brother – and hopefully will pass on some of his dance moves.
Many people have wondered why the family chose the name “Theron.” Its Greek origins mean “to hunt,” so we can only assume that this was a unique spin on the name “Hunter” – and that it flows great with last name, Cook! What we do know, is that as he grows up he will have 7 great, musically talented uncles to guide him along the way.
Zac Brown band is all about family – and we love it! Join us in celebrating the beauty of life, love, and family by watching this heartfelt Zac Brown Band video, “I’ll Be Your Man (Song For A Daughter). With lyrics like “There was a time when/I thought I knew love/Until you came into this world/Time keeps on flying/But you’re always/Gonna be my baby girl,” it’s hard to come away with dry eyes.
