Country singer Jason Aldean,40 and his 29 year old wife Britney Kerr-Aldean welcomed their first child together into the world today. A boy they named Memphis Aldean. The singer told his fans “So blessed today to see my little man come into the world. In a year that has been a roller-coaster ride, this is what it’s all about. I can’t wait to see what the world has in store for this kid.” The baby weighed 9 pounds 5 ounces. The two new parents are telling their friends and family they ‘are over the moon excited about their new baby.’
The road to get to this point has been extremely rocky for the twosome. Aldean was married when he met Kerr, who was an ‘American Idol’ contestant. They had an affair leading to a difficult divorce from Aldean’s first wife, Jessica Ussery. The events started back in September of 2012 when pictures of Aldean and Kerr surfaced showing them very cozy at a bar. Aldean immediately apologized to his family and fans. He said he had too much to drink and things got out of hand, and he made a mistake.
Aldean has two daughters with Ussary. Keeley,14, and Kendyl,9. Jessica and Jason were able to reconcile after the pictures surfaced. Jessica said she wasn’t ready to give up on her marriage just yet. However after only six months back together, the relationship unraveled. Aldean filed for divorce after 11 years of marriage. Less than a year after the divorce, it was revealed that Aldean and Kerr were dating, within a year they were married. The two years between his divorce and marriage were very difficult ones for Aldean. He faced severe backlash for getting together with his ‘mistress’. He told people ‘to get over it already’. He said publicly he’s still recovering from the October 1st Las Vegas mass shooting, where he was a headliner.
