Jason Aldean Is Excited to Raise a Large Family, But Probably Done With Kids
Jason Aldean will soon be the father of four children after the arrival of daughter Navy Rome in 2019, and he's looking forward to experiencing what it's like to raise a large family.
The country superstar and his wife Brittany welcomed son Memphis on Dec. 1, 2017, who joined sisters Keeley, 15, and Kendyl, 11, from Aldean's previous marriage. Being a part of a big family is a stark contrast to the singer's upbringing, where he was the only child on his mother's side and had a sister seven years younger on his father's side.
The addition of a fourth child to his clan will create a new dynamic, one Aldean is ready to embrace. "For me to have a big family, like this growing family, it's pretty cool. It wasn't like that for me growing up, so it's a different vibe," he explains to The Highway host Storme Warren.
"I love being a dad. I think that's probably the coolest thing you can be is a parent and raise kids, and see what they turn into," he continues.
As for having three daughters? "Me and Memphis are definitely outnumbered. But it's going to be fun, we're excited. I think this is officially the end of my baby-making days. If I've got anything to do with it, it is," he laughs.
The "Drowns the Whiskey" singer also shares how he and his wife came up with the name Navy Rome for their baby. Aldean reveals that while brainstorming names for Memphis, Brittany was originally set on "Roman," but he wasn't keen on the idea. When it came time to select a name for their second child together, "She had the [first] name Navy for this go-around, and I thought that was cool," Aldean shares. "She goes 'You didn't let me name Memphis 'Roman,' so can I [give her the middle name] Rome?' And I was like 'I can live with that, I can live with Rome.'"
Aldean and Brittany are expecting baby Navy in February; Brittany unveiled the name publicly during her baby shower earlier this month, showcasing it written in neon lights. They announced the pregnancy in summer of 2018 and later revealed the sex of the baby in a gender reveal video where Kendyl and Keeley used baseball bats to open special balloons filled with pink dust.
