Sam Hunt and his wife Hannah Lee Fowler are expecting their second child.
The country superstar announced the exciting news during his concert in Las Vegas at Resorts World Theatre on Friday, April 21.
A concertgoer at Hunt’s show in Sin City told Entertainment Tonight that the “Body Like A Back Road” singer told the audience that he was going to be a father of two while performing at Resorts World Theatre.
According to the outlet, he also went on to say that his wife and their 10-month-old daughter, Lucy Lu, were in Vegas with him for his exclusive two-night residency at the 5,000-capacity theatre.
Hunt hasn’t shared the news yet on social media and he also didn’t share a due date.
The Couple Welcomed Their First Child In 2022
The surprise baby news comes just about a year after Hunt and his wife Hannah welcomed their first child, Lucy Louise.
Sam Hunt revealed that he and his wife welcomed their first child while he was performing at Star’s For Second Harvest, a charity concert benefitting the Second Harvest food bank, in June of 2022.
In the midst of his headlining set at the event, Hunt shocked the crowd with the news that he “recently had a baby girl named Lucy Lu.”
At the time, Sam Hunt told the audience that he and Lee Fowler welcomed their daughter “a couple of weeks ago” and that she’s already had a profound impact on his life.
“I think being out here in the music business and being out on the road is sort of hard on my heart,” Hunt told the crowd. “My heart definitely a lot harder some days since I left that small town, but it’s amazing how that little girl melted that all away overnight a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been filled with a lot of gratitude these past couple of weeks and I just want to say up here on The Ryman stage how grateful I am to have been a part of Country music for the last ten years.”
Sam Hunt Says His Life Has “Drastically Changed” Since Welcoming His Daughter Lucy
Since his daughter Lucy was born, Sam Hunt admitted that his life “drastically changed.”
“I mean, the way I experience everything on a day-to-day basis has drastically changed,” Hunt shared during a recent round-robin with the media. ”I rode down to live out outside of town, and there’s a little pond and gravel driveway. We live in a little cabin. There’s a little pond several hundred yards from the cabin. And when we first moved out there, I’d go down to the pond occasionally, but not all that often.”
He also shared that Lucy Lu is beginning to recognize his voice.
“She started to perk up and really show interest in me just a few months ago,” the 38-year-old Georgia native shared. “And it seems to be growing, especially if she’s fed and napped. When she’s happy, she really loves me.”
“I love it, but Hannah, not so much that [Lucy Lu] is really focusing in on me because when she’s trying to nurse if I’m in the room, she wants to look over her shoulder the whole time, and just won’t eat, which I’m obsessed with, but I have to leave the room a lot of times if she wants me to be quiet, not play the guitar in the other room or stomp around because she’s becoming more aware of me.”
Lucy Already Says “Dada”
Hunt also detailed that his daughter is becoming more aware of him as her father and has even begun to say “dada.”
“I went to hand her off to the babysitter the other day, and she grabbed onto parts of my shirt to hang on. And that was a special little moment,” he continued. “So I think she’s becoming more aware of dad.”
The “House Party” hitmaker admitted that “it just melts my heart” whenever his daughter says “dada.”
“She loosely associates ‘dada’ with me, but I’ll take it because usually there are things that she wants,” he added. ”She’ll say, ‘dada’ when she wants something, but she’s starting to hone in because I try to encourage it when she says, ‘dada,’ to light up and give her a reaction, so she knows that that’s going to be me. So yeah, she’s been doing that for a little while and “mama” too. But it’s fantastic. I’ve just been in heaven the past few months.”
