Chris Lane’s wife and The Bachelor alum Lauren Bushnell Lane gave an update on her and Lane’s son Dutton Walker’s condition.
On Monday (July 5) evening, Lane’s wife shared a video clip via her Instagram stories, giving fans an update on their son’s health after an overnight hospital stay on Sunday (July 4).
“We have had a rough evening,” Lauren said in an Instagram story, before Lane added, “yeah we have.”
“Went to ER at 9pm thinking Dutton had an ear infection,” Bushnell Lane captioned the video. “14 hours later we are back home and resting but basically he has a common virus (basically a cold) and ear infection but with babies so small and under 28 days old they worry about meningitis and do full work up / spinal tap. Thankfully we just have to give him meds and keep an eye and pray it doesn’t turn respiratory or get any secondary infections.”
Lane’s wife also shared a photo via her Instagram stories, which she captioned, “home and resting! Thanks everyone for the prayers – hopefully we keep resting and getting better!”
Earlier today (July 5), the “Big, Big Plans” singer asked fans to pray for his 1-month-old son, following a 14-hour hospital stay. The country superstar shared the news via an Instagram story, which showed video of Lane, his wife and their newborn son in a hospital room.
“It’s been a night…in the hospital,” Lane said in an Instagram story. “Poor guy.”
The story is captioned, “Spent the night in the hospital. If you pray, Dutty Buddy needs some prayers.”
Lane and his wife Lauren Bushnell welcomed their first child, Dutton, earlier this month on Tuesday, June 8 in Nashville, Tennessee. Dutton was born at 11:12 a.m. and weighed 9 lbs and measured 19.5 inches long.
“Everyone in the room, including Lauren and me, were shocked we had a 9-pound baby! Not sure where he was hiding in her belly?!” Lane told PEOPLE, he later added, “Watching Lauren go through the birthing process – from the beginning to the moment she delivered – was the most incredible thing I’ve ever witnessed, I experienced an emotion I’ve never felt before.”
Lane’s wife Lauren Bushnell told the outlet, “I’ve never felt an immediate unconditional love like I now have for Dutton. And going through this experience with Chris has made me love and appreciate him even more… I didn’t think that was possible!”
Additionally, following his son’s birth, the North Carolina native shared a brand new song entitled “Ain’t Even Met You Yet,” which was inspired by his son and co-written by Lane alongside Michael Lotten and Jordan Walker. You can listen to the track below.
