Dylan Scott and his wife Blair welcomed their second child on Wednesday, a girl named Finley Gray. But the Louisiana native admits he’d previously spent some time worrying about becoming the father of two.
“I kind of stressed out the other night in bed,” he confessed prior to the birth. “I didn’t fall asleep until three in the morning, and I didn’t really know why until it hit me the next day: I was thinking about having two kids, and being responsible for two instead of one.”
Ultimately, what calms his fears is his confidence in Blair, the inspiration for his breakthrough number one hit, “My Girl.“
“I have a good wife,” Dylan brags. “She’s a good mom and she’s there for them all of the time when I’m on the road.”
“I don’t really have any worries at all,” he adds. “It’s just the fact that I have two little humans that rely on me now. I’m responsible for them. Really, out of anything, I’m just excited.”
The couple announced Finley’s birth with an Instagram photo of Dylan holding the baby as their son Beckett touched his new sister’s face. Prior to Finley’s arrival, Dylan wasn’t so sure the nearly-two-year-old realized how his life was about to change.
“He doesn’t quite understand it yet,” Dylan explained. “We taught him ‘bellybutton’ when he was younger, and it sounds like ‘baby’ when he says it. He’ll walk up [to his mom’s stomach] and point at it and… I don’t know if he’s saying ‘baby’ or ‘bellybutton.'”
Dylan went on to reveal that he hopes to have a third child — specifically, a son he’d like to name Beaux Hudson — but Blair has told him she’s done for now.
Meanwhile, Dylan’s latest single, “Nothing to Do Town,” is currently a top forty hit.
