Tyler Hubbard and his wife Hayley welcomed their third child, Atlas Roy Hubbard, at 6:44 Nashville time on Thursday (9/24).
The proud father told People of the baby’s name, “Atlas stands for strength. For us, this name also represents our family’s passion for travel and experiencing different cultures.”
Tyler added, “Roy was the name of my dad, who passed away when I was 20. Getting to name our son after him is so special to us. Atlas will carry on my dad’s legacy and will always be a reminder of how well he loved everyone.”
Atlas weighed in at 8 lbs., 2 oz. and measured 21 inches long, the couple joked, “He was over a week late and we were just convinced he was happy in his little hot tub, safe from 2020.”
Atlas rounds out the family of five, which also includes the Florida Georgia Line singer-songwriter and his wife’s son Luca Reed, 13 months, and daughter Olivia Rose, 2½.
The Hubbards said, “We are so excited to have Atlas here! It’s been an amazing journey and we are feeling so thankful. Having three under 3 was not our plan but clearly it was God’s plan, and now we can’t imagine it any other way. Liv is so excited and ready to meet her baby brother. My wife is a CHAMP. She’s so strong and peaceful at the same time. With each delivery, I’m reminded not only of how amazing the birthing process is, but also how incredible women are for giving birth.”
