“1 more day to be my little kids dad… lord knows I’m a lucky man,” Wallen captioned his Instagram post, quoting song lyrics to Montgomery Gentry’s hit song, “Lucky Man.” The aforementioned track is the second single from Montgomery Gentry’s 2006 album, Some People Change, and later became the duo’s third No. 1 single.

In addition to sharing the aforementioned father/son bonding moment photo, Wallen and his son recently shared a milestone moment together. Indigo experienced his first trip to Bass Pro Shops with his dad, Wallen, and it’s a pretty big deal, so much that the “Wasted On You” singer knew he had to document it within a video on Instagram.
The country superstar also shared a demo earlier this week of a new song that he say has him “fired up,” a song that pays tribute to the country boy lifestyle.
Wallen welcomed his first child, a son named Indigo Wilder on Friday, July 10 at 5:43 p.m. with his ex-fiancée, Katie Smith. The baby weighed 6lbs, 13oz at birth. Indigo is the first child for both Wallen and Smith, the couple were engaged for 3 years before breaking up in 2019.
Additionally, when first welcoming his son into the world he made him a promise to himself that he’ll be the dad that Indie deserves, but he also previously admitted that he “didn’t know what being a dad would feel like” and says he was “honestly a little scared” at first.
However, Wallen previously shared that being a dad is “the coolest damn feeling, and I’m ready for whatever God has planned for me and my little guy.”
