Country star and wife announce new baby

Rodney Atkins and his wife Rose Falcon Atkins have welcomed their first child together: a son named Ryder Falcon. He was born in Nashville, Tennessee, on Thursday, Dec. 14, at 2:02 p.m.


Falcon is Rose’s maiden name, and I really wanted to honor her dad and her 96-year-old grandpa,” Rodney, 48, said. “I always loved the name Ry, and Rose came up with Ryder!”

The couple announced via social media they were expecting on July 4th with an adorable photo of the couple. Rose revealed back in September after sharing a baby bump photo that Ryder was the couple's rainbow baby.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
