Maddie & Tae’s Taylor Kerr Welcomes Baby Girl 3 Months Early

Maddie & Tae‘s Taylor Kerr is a mom! The singer and her husband, Josh Kerr, welcomed their first child, daughter Leighton Grace Kerr on January 17. The baby, born three months premature and weighing only two pounds and five ounces, seems to be doing well, in spite of her early arrival.

“Leighton Grace Kerr, born January 17, 2022,” the singer posted on social media, along with a few photos of her new daughter. “She’s beautiful, strong and everything we have ever dreamed of. She decided to be a Capricorn like her daddy. We already can’t wait for the day we get to finally take her home.”

In November, Kerr announced on social media that she and Josh were expecting a girl, due in the spring of 2022. In January, Josh revealed on social media that his wife had been in the hospital on bed rest for a month, due to complications with her pregnancy.

“Today marks 1 month of being in the hospital,” he posted. “T went in for a routine check up at 24 weeks then we were immediately admitted and we have been here since. Our sweet girl is doing great, she is just a little more excited than she is ready to be in the world. This hasn’t been easy but we’re leaning on God and trusting His plan. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.”

In December, the duo announced that they were postponing their CMT Next Women of Country: All Song No Static Tour, due to Kerr’s pregnancy.

“As excited as we are to get out on the road and see everyone, we are holding off on our return a little bit longer,” they shared in a joint statement. “Tae and her baby are doing great, but the doctor has placed her on temporary bed rest. Out of precaution, we are postponing our upcoming tour dates, including the CMT Next Women of Country: All Song No Static Tour. Rescheduled dates to be announced soon!

“We appreciate your understanding and we’ll be back on tour with new music as soon as we can!” the statement continued. “May you and yours have a holiday full of joy and blessings! We love you!”

Maddie & Tae’s Through the Madness Vol. 1, featuring collaborations with Lori McKenna and Morgane Stapleton, will be out on January 28. Pre-order the record here.
